"Strong as a monkey" -- often used by the kids these days, this expression for strength is no approximation: a rather different kind of athlete is currently measuring its strength in Chongqing Safari Park in southwest China. This young chimapanzee by the name of Yuhui surely faired quite well in the weightlifting contest. Unfortunately, it's hard to tell whether the weights were actually made of iron or only of wood.
