Chen does some warm-up exercises before he starts the challenge.
A 51-year-old man in Chengdu who bizarrely challenged himself to walk 5.5 kilometers with 40 kilograms of dung in two buckets accomplished the task in one hour and 34 minutes yesterday morning.
Mr. Chen, a former farmer, told reporters that he quit carrying dung on poles 10 years ago, so he decided to take on the challenge to prove to his friends that he still had the skill, NetEase reported.
Chen’s friends give him a pep talk before his daunting dung challenge.
Chen’s friends cheered him on before he started off, and drove alongside him in their Audis to make sure he completed the challenge.

The shows Chen has great willpower, and maybe a slightly affected sense of smell.
Chen is the man.
