By Benjamin Flowers: A strongman from the central English county of Derbyshire is aiming to close out his illustrious career with a bang, by setting 100 world records before he retires.

John Evans, 74, who has been all over the world balancing heavy objects on his head from bricks, to water kegs, to a mini car, is trying to reach the 100th milestone before his 75th birthday in March 2022, Reuters reports. Evans’ feats of strength are even more noteworthy as he has managed to pull them off while battling several illnesses.

“I’ve got one eye, I’m a diabetic, I’ve got asthma, I‘ve got angina and after all is said and done I’ve got 98 world records,” Evans told Reuters.

Yesterday Evans, dressed as Santa clause, went for his 99th record, balancing a chimney on his head. He added he is having a five-foot by five-foot (1.52m x 1.52m) crown made which he will balance for his 100th record.

Over the years, Evans has raised over £250,000 (US$330,915.00) for charity through his lifting events. He noted that the mini car is one of his more popular events, but also one of the most dangerous.

“It was 357 pounds (162 kg) and I managed to balance it … for 20 seconds on my head … if that had gone wrong, it would have killed me,” Evans said.
