World’s Strongest Man Pulls School Bus Filled With Food In Waterbury

WATERBURY, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — It was quite a workout Tuesday morning for the Derek Poundstone. The Naugatuck police officer and World’s Strongest Man showed off his strength by pulling a school bus filled with donated food.

LISTEN: 1010 WINS Al Jones reports 

Chained to the bumper of a bus, kids at Duggan Elementary School in Waterbury, Conn. cheered him on.

It was all part of a drive to help local pantries with all the food donated by students.

But pulling the bus uphill was almost too much for the world’s strongest man.

“Just pulled until I couldn’t pull anymore. It was a very heavy incline,” said Poundstone. “Probably the hardest pull I’ve ever done.”

But he said the kids cheering him on made it all worth it.

“It’s the reason I came out,” he said. “That’s what makes it all worth it. It’s inspiring.”

Poundstone has been competing in strongman contests for the last seven years.
