In 2009, he was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records after setting the record for the fastest ever 10 m hand-walk with a weight ball between his legs. Stroe performed the stunt in front of a cheering live audience on an Italian TV Show, and has become an Internet sensation as hundreds of thousands of people have watched the clip of him performing the stunt on YouTube.
On February 24, 2010 he broke the world record for number of air push-ups, which is an exercise where push-ups are performed without letting your feet touch the ground. Stroe managed 20 'air push ups' beating his previous record of 12, live on Romanian TV.
On the same TV show, he broke another world record, for 'the human flag' - an exercise in which he had to support all the weight parallel to the ground, the hands hanging by a bar.
