Here is a translation of the article following the video.
Carl Christensen Yngvar (21) from Elverum is now the European champion in powerlifting when he set a new world record with a total weight of 1135 kg in Ukraine.
Christensen led after the first exercise, the squat. He started at 420 pounds, then went up to 437.5 kg, before he took gold in the class with an incredible 445 kg on the last promise, which is the world record for juniors.
Christensen is still junior, but is now competing in the senior class.
In the bench press started Christensen of 310 pounds, before he rose to 317.5 kg on the other promise, while the third lifted 322.5 kg were approved. The gold was won by Kenneth Sandvik from Finland with 327.5 kg.
Christensen led with 22.5 kg before the last exercise, the deadlift.
No Elverum started with approved 347,5 kilos, before he lifted the other tried to 367.5 kg, but it was rejected. On the last he managed to lift 367.5 pounds, and he took gold in the exercise.
Christensen raised a total of 1135 kg. He was the European champion, in addition to setting a new world.
Is it just me, or did he make that 367.5 kg deadlift look like play weight?
Seems like he had a LOT left in him.
I've noticed a lot of lifters tend to have their 1RM move almost as smoothly as the rest of their lifts. This is especially common in deadlift. Benny's world record was lightning fast, but I won't suggest he "could have pulled more". It's just the way some people are it seems.
There's a lot of good reasons to hate the IPF, mostly politics... I much prefer lifting in the WPC, and I find the judging there to be very fair also. They have a great raw division, ask Konstantin Konstantinovs
