Giuliano Stroe (born June 18, 2004) is a Romanian gymnast. Giuliano Stroe has been lifting weights and learning gymnastics since he was two-years-old in Florence, Italy where his family lived. They now live again in Romania. In 2009, he was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records after setting the record for the fastest ever ten metre (33 feet) hand-walk with a weight ball between his legs. Stroe performed the stunt in front of a cheering live audience on an Italian TV Show, and has become an Internet sensation as hundreds of thousands of people have watched the clip of him performing the stunt on YouTube.

On February 24, 2010 he broke the world record for number of 90 degree push-ups (which is an exercise where push-ups are performed without letting your feet touch the ground). Stroe managed 20 90 degree push-ups beating his previous record of 12, live on Romanian TV.[1]

Giuliano's father Iulian, 33-years-old, said he has been taking Giuliano with him to the gym ever since he was born, but he is careful not to push Giuliano too hard. Stroe insists his son's workout schedule is not excessive. "He is never allowed to practice on his own, he is only a child and if he gets tired we go and play," Iulian said.

Giuliano says his newfound celebrity has not gone to his head. He adds that he still does normal seven-year-old activities like watching cartoons and painting. Giuliano Records]. NY Daily News (2009-10-26). Retrieved on 2012-04-01.</ref>
