This is Matthias Steiner. He’s a German Olympic weightlifter in the highest weight category. He once made a promise to his wife, a promise that one day he would win a gold medal in the Olympics and be the strongest man in the world. He trained for years for this, and just a month before he would go on to compete, his wife tragically died in a car accident. In order to break the record, he’d need to lift 20 kilograms more than he’d ever lifted. This is the video of his attempt at the gold medal.
