The 68-year old peace philosopher and heavy [weightlifting] athlete Sri Chinmoy, who resides in New York City, set two new world records. He lifted 907 kg (the weight of a middle-class car) using a standard standing calf raise machine and 453.6 kg (the weight of a heavy motorcycle) on a seated calf rise machine. After an interval of 12-years he has returned to the art of lifting heavy weights using the power gained from meditation. Also he writes poetry, books and speeches and he is the founder of the worldwide Peace Run, which will be in Slovenia from 1st to 4th of November.
