Vladimir Putin burnishes strongman credentials ahead of 2012 poll

The 58-year-old Russian prime minister put in his latest display of physical    prowess at a Kremlin youth camp 230 miles northwest of Moscow in front of    thousands of patriotic young Russians who are encouraged by organisers each year to put the strongman politician    on a pedestal. Dressed in chinos and a light-coloured striped shirt, Mr    Putin talked tough too, calling the United States a parasite on the global    economy.
But it was his physical feats that seemed to wow his young audience more than    anything.
Photographs of the event, which took place on Monday, showed Mr Putin trying    to crush a frying pan with his bare hands as young admirers looked on. It is    not clear whether he succeeded.
