Romeo, The World’s Smallest Bodybuilder
Aditya ‘Romeo’ Dev is a body builder with dwarfism made famous by being reported in the UK press in February 2008. Romeo can shoulder press custom made 2 kg dumbbells, a notable feat given his 9kg (20 lbs.) body weight and 2′ 9″ stature. Although it has not been published in a Guinness World Records book, in 2006 they recognized him to be the “world’s smallest bodybuilder”.
Unlike many little people Romeo is well proportioned, having a head of 15 inches and a chest of 20 inches. He maintains his toned body by putting in long hours with his trainer Ranjeet Pal.
Romeo passed away on September 13th. RIP ROMEO
