The amazing Declan Burns

IT MAY be almost 35 years ago, but the strength of Enniskillen man Declan Burns is still seriously impressive.

For 28 years Declan held the leg-assisted pull-up world record after an unbelievable show of strength as part of the World Superstars series event in Florida in 1981.


Declan did 55 pull ups in just 60 seconds and that was during a multi-event competition.

The world record, which stood until 2009 only gained official Guinness recognition before Christmas.

Take a bow Declan, it really is some feat!

How many can you do in 60 seconds?
