Nejib Belhedi first pulled a few children on a small boat. Then he pulled a camel. Then he pulled a 22-ton boat. Then he planned on pulling a 50-ton ship 200 meters in the Ultimate World Iron Swim Challenge in Port El Kantaoui on December 23rd.

But Belhedi went beyond the 50 tons in his World Iron Swim Challenge.

Today, he pulled a 70-ton ship from a dead stop a total distance of 350 meters over an intense 14 minutes 39 minutes in Port Kantaoui in Tunisia.

Photo above shows a 22-ton boat. Photos of the 70-ton World Iron Swim will follow.
