I am pleased with today's results, but I am not in a hurry to lay all my cards on the table immediately. As soon as you do it, everything is over,” Elchyev said, according to The Telegraph.

As you have seen I announced I would balance only 27 spoons but showed I could do 50 instead. So, next time I might show not 150, but even more. My goal is to set a world record which no one else can break, he added.

Elchyev is a kick-boxing trainer and discovered the magnetic property of his body less than a year ago.
