Aditya Dev-Shortest Body Buildr in world
Aditya ‘Romeo’ Dev is a body builder with dwarfism made famous by being reported in the UK press in February 2008.
Romeo can shoulder press custom made 1.5kg dumbbells, a notable feat given his 9kg (20 lbs.) body weight and 2′ 9″ stature.
Although it has not been published in a Guinness World Records book, in 2006 they recognized him to
be the “world’s smallest bodybuilder”.
Unlike many little people Romeo is well proportioned, having a head of 15 inches and a chest of 20 inches.
He maintains his toned body by putting in long hours with his trainer Ranjeet Pal.
Romeo enjoys great fame in his home country and makes many appearances on local television to show off his dancing abilities.
In addition to bodybuilding, Romeo’s dream is to travel extensively as an entertainer and dancer. One day he hopes to perform in London with his idol Jazzy B.
In summer of 2008, Aditya was diagnosed with aneurysms which, if left untreated, are a serious threat to his life.
Aneurysms and Moyamoya are common symptoms of the syndrome MOPD II, which is the cause of Aditya’s small stature.
