Maltese strongman Tony Farrugia showcased his natural talent on last night’s episode of Malta’s Got Talent, leaving the judges in absolute awe.
Farrugia’s audition consisted of four acts. He first successfully bent a metal pan with his bare hands in the span of a few seconds, much to judge Valentina Rossi’s delight.
He followed it up by impressively lifting up two 25kg gas cylinders, one with each pinky finger, absolutely shocking the judges.
“My husband complains about carrying one gas cylinder, how?” Rossi asked, to which the strongman replied that he can carry up to 44 kilograms using just his little finger.
After hammering a piece of wood using his hands, Farrugia informed the judges that he has a truck waiting outside. He then proceeds to solely pull the truck using ropes, to the astonishment of the judges.
Once back on stage, the strongman triumphantly received four yeses from the judges, and consequently moved on to the next phase of Malta’s Got Talent.
During his audition, Tony was asked how he acquired his talent and whether he goes to the gym but he said that he genetically inherited his strength from his grandfather, who was a well-known weight-lifter in Malta.
Tony performed at Puttinu Cares in 2015, kick-starting his career and gaining a “strongman” reputation. He has since continued performing in shows, and raising money for charities.
He has stated that if he was to win Malta’s Got Talent, he will donate the prize money to charities he supports, including Puttinu Cares.
