Carl Yngvar Christensen came up big in the moment at the International Powerlifting Federations World Championships in Stavanger, Norway, when he performed a 1,047-pound squat. Christensen was competing in the 120kg+ (264.555 lb+) division, and though the squat has to be verified by the IPF, if it is ratified it will be the new record.
As you see in the video, the home support inspired the 23-year-old powerlifter to the new high. Check out the awesome footage complete with the enthusiastic commentators. Way to go, Carl!
