Muscovite Sets Record

Nikolay Kutsenko, pictured in Saturday's edition of The Moscow Times trying to break the world record for heading a soccer ball, succeeded in his quest, Moskovsky Komsomolets reported Sunday.


He kept the ball bouncing off his forehead for 7 hours, 19 minutes, beating by two minutes the record held by a Korean, the paper said. Though Kutsenko appeared weary and stumbled once in the seventh hour, he succeeded in his quest with only a callous on his forehead.
