Lucky Man of Steel
He wasn't competing in any events, but that just makes his feats that much more impressive.
Schmidt was bending the steel rods on his nose and twisting the horseshoes with his bare hands.
"I saw it on T.V. years ago back in '77, the world's strongest man used to bend stuff. And I went out and did the same stuff they did. Bought the same bars, and I was able to do it and I was 200 pounds and they were 300 and I could do what they were doing," said Schmidt.
Schmidt has been doing his incredible talent for nearly thirty years. He is the only person to bend the steel rod without a pad on his nose.
