      Nail biter at Show-Me State Games

      Schmidt is a fifth generation farmer who has broken records with his teeth for more than 3 decades.

      It was a real nail biter during this yearâ??s Show-Me State Games competition.

      Strongman Steve Schmidt, from Leslie, MO, believes he broke a Guinness record for pulling nails out of a wooden board with his teeth.

      He pulled 5 nails in less than 22 seconds.

      Schmidt is a fifth generation farmer who has broken records with his teeth for more than 3 decades.

      He says he does it for the attention.

      Schmidt said, â??I never got much recognition as a kid. All I did was work on the farm. I never got to play little league and do sports like everybody else did. I always knew that I was good. My parents said you gotta work.â??

      Schmidt said it will take about 2 weeks for Guinness judges to approve his new world record.

      He also uses his teeth to bend steel, horseshoes and license plates.
