Eddie Hall just keeps breaking records.

The English strongman stunned the crowd at the World Deadlift Championships over the weekend by becoming the first man in history to deadlift 500 kilograms (1102 pounds).

While the crowd at the Leeds Arena was going wild, Hall slumped to the ground and began bleeding from his nose. He said afterwards that the lift "nearly killed" him.



That nearly killed me," Hall told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

"The pressure on my body was surreal. I passed out after. I had nose bleeds. It's not healthy doing something like that.

"But I've done it. I'm sure it will be in the history books for a very long time... It's that great feeling, like the first man on the moon, the first man to run a mile in under four minutes. And now I'm the first to deadlift half a ton."

Hall had set the world record just a few months ago by lifting 465kg (1026 pounds).

Hall is certainly no one-trick pony. While his deadlift is easily his strongest movement in the gym, the 180kg giant can squat over 400kg and bench press 300kg.

He can allegedly leg press a whopping 1000kg.

The 28-year-old burst on to the strongman scene in 2010 when he won England's Strongest Man. Since then, Hall has come first at every UK or Britain's Strongest Man competition.

The undisputed strongest man in Britain, Hall has competed at the last four World's Strongest Man competitions, with his best finish coming in 2015, where he placed fourth overall.

He was narrowly beaten by Game of Thrones star and Icelandic giant Hafthor "The Mountain" Bjornsson.
