Eddie Hall And The Inside Story Of His World Record 500kg Deadlift That Put His Life In Danger
Eddie Hall put his life in danger to set a stunning new world record 500kg deadlift.
The world's strongest man passed out straight after achieving the incredible feat in 2016 in front of a packed crowd at First Direct Arena in Leeds.
Hall had twice broke the world record in 2014 and 2015 - lifting 463kg on the second occasion - to set the stage for his amazing attempt at the Leeds Giants Live Championships.
The 31-year-old had just lifted 465kg along with Jerri Peat and Benni Magnusson, meaning more weight needed to be added to the bar.

Hall stepped up, took a deep breath, and became the first man to break the 500kg mark before collapsing on top of the bar.
After a few moments to find his feet and regain his composure, an emotional Hall said: "You wouldn't believe how many hours and all the family time that I sacrificed."
Peat and Magnusson both tried but failed to match Hall's 500kg mark, and the man from Newcastle-under-Lyme went down in the record books.
