Shortest Bodybuilder in the World – Aditya Dev

Filed under: Uncategorized — sirlaugh @ 3:17 pm

At just 2ft 9in, Indian muscleman Aditya ‘Romeo’ Dev is the world’s smallest bodybuilder.

Pint-sized Romeo is well-known in his hometown of Phagwara, India – for his ability to lift 1.5kg dumbbells – despite his overall 9kg body weight.

Every day, crowds flock to the local gym to the see the mini-muscleman in training.

He could also be the worlds smallest dancer.

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 enjoys great fame in his home country and makes many appearances on local television to show off his dancing abilities. In addition to bodybuilding, Romeo’s dream is to travel extensively as an entertainer and dancer. One day he hopes to perform in London with his idol Jazzy B.

In summer of 2008, Aditya was diagnosed with aneurysms which, if left untreated, are a serious threat to his life. Aneurysms and Moyamoya are common symptoms of the syndrome MOPD II, which is the cause of Aditya’s small stature.
