Tommy Heslep - he was on one of the late night shows and did multiple potatoes very quickly.  I imagine others have also.  How hard/soft were they - I have no clue.

He uses his fingers, Can anyone crush a potato without digging there fingers in it?

If no fingertip involvement was used both John Brookfield and I agreed long ago a hard baking potato might not be able to do.

Careful digging in your fingers if you've never tried this.  The potato meat goes under your finger nails very easily and you'll be bleeding from under your nails.  :pinch

I wouldn't even want to try digging my fingers in to a potato, I don't think it would feel nice.

A friend of mine, Roy Rotzer, one of the best greco roman wrestlers in Sweden, if not THE best, crushes a tatoe. Search the tube. :)

He has also inofficially beaten the swedish record for flipping a 25kg eleiko plate for 1 minute.

He almost doubled it := Seen him close coc3,5 and pull 94kg on a RT down in the gym.

Im trying to make him film the plate flipping but it hasnt been done yet!

He and Tex have both tried the potato thing the "right way" the deep dish York 45 s and the Rice calibrated 224lb. #4 on the wall .they said "no" to all of them. I have never known Rich to lie or even ever say something he could do and not do it.
That hard #4 is the only one in the gym that ever was put out and I think it "put them off" from wanting to continue.
In a moment aside I asked him ( Rich) if he was paid to train on the #4 could he do it on legal certification. He quietly said "yes" and walked over to a bar and bench 405 for 4 sets of 20 in a T shirt. I kind of "understand "and believe him.
