Woman sets world record by lifting person with just her hair

London, Sept. 21 (ANI): A UK woman has got her name etched in the Guinness Book of Records for lifting another person, weighing 53.4 kg, with just her tresses.

Joanna Sawicka, known as Anastasia IV, who was previously studying to become a biochemist, carried out the amazing feat at an Italian TV show, the Daily Star reported.

Sawicka revealed that she gave up her studies soon after a trip to the circus because she wanted to join it.

Sawicka said that she applied for a job at the 'The Circus of Horrors' and told the circus bosses about her super human hair.

She was later asked to join the circus after she cleared her audition. (ANI)
