Encouraged by a friend of hers, Darya pulled a 22-ton jam-packed tram. She was attached to the front of the streetcar by a harness, and managed to get it moving after a few seconds of flexing her muscles to loud cheers and screams of support from the crowd – the unbelievable moment was caught on camera.
As she completed the challenge in about a minute, it took four strongmen to halt the carriage from continuing to pick up speed.
“The guys told me to try, and I did it. I am happy. I said that I’m ready for new records and victories, so here it is, the first record!” Darya explained, adding that she had been training to pull a 10-ton truck.
