Anton Kraft claims to be "the strongest man in the world" and this at only 4ft 4in tall! Anton Kraft broke records for weightlifting by being able to lift four times his own weight, according to him, "I am one of the five strongest guys in the world, regardless of height and weight. And I am the only guy in the world who has ever benched four-times his body weight." And now finally, the 52-year-old thinks it's time to settle down.
Mirror UK reports that the dwarf has revealed he hopes to break down further barriers by marrying his 6ft 3in transgender girlfriend. The bodybuilder, who is originally from Denmark but now lives in Florida, said he instantly fell for China Bell, despite the fact she was originally born a man.
On why he loves her, Anton said:
"We used to walk against the current, but the current has changed. Florida is one the states that have same-sex marriage - and both of us are basically the same sex.
"I enjoy dating a transgender woman because she was born a male and is doing the utmost to become as feminine as possible.
"I find that most women born as women do not spend as much time on their appearance.”
China also spoke out on why she could not resist her new love, who she has now been dating for six months. She said:
"I think Anton's weightlifting is so sexy because I think he's sexy - when you hold a world heavyweight title, that means a lot.
"I've never dated a 4ft 4in guy and I was just so curious. I'm glad I gave him a chance because he's an amazing person.
"I'm different and he's different, and where we're from, different is good.”
Anton sees a bright happily wedded future for the height-mismatched couple. He said;
"I may also go down on one knee and ask for China's hand - because I think her name would look so good with my last name.
"Right now I feel like I'm the luckiest man on the planet - we are all happy and good and I have never felt better than I do now - and that would be thanks to China."
