Sup guys,
I know this is not BB, but is the only exciting thing going on with this whole virus situation that shutdown the entire world.

As you may know Hafthor Bjornsson was going to compete in April at the 2020 WUS Dubai and attempt to lift the 501kg Deadlift record there - https://musclemecca.com/showthread.php?t=244161&p=3252276

The original and creative idea, in my opinion, from the guys running the WUS federation, came up with this live stream, a judge there in the gym with Thor and his team (max 15-16 people) and another judge online - it will be Zydrunas Savickas if I'm not mistaken.

Then after this, till July or so many more record attempts will follow in different events: log lift, circus DB for reps, 800lbs bench press by Julius Maddox etc.

Anyway, if you're interested, here's the LIVE stream:





ps. ESPN will broadcast it LIVE in the US as well.

Not even the Olympia had this many lol, and they're yet to begin with the first lift.

Almost 300k viewers now.

They just said that Thor weighs 205kg which is 451lbs, at 6'9" damn.

First lift went up fast: 420kg good lift.

Thankful for these attempts and the live stream idea.

These days we got nothing else: no football, no F1, no Moto GP, no Tennis, no bodybuilding, nothing.


Thor's going to the bar with the 465kg on right now.

And another good lift!

Kinda strange tho, not as fast as Eddie's 465kg from 2016, and judging by this speed, as of now I am not that sure he will hit the 501.

Hope I'm way wrong though.

He just said that he signed the contract with Coresports for 7 figures (a few millions) for a boxing match between he and Eddie Hall for next year.

This will be huge as well, I know there was some talk since last year but now shit just got real.

^^ thank you for those videos TKOL!

I don't know about you guys, but I am looking forward to the fight lol.

The script between them was prepared months in advance imo, and it is better than the WWE almost lol.

My pick for the win: Thor will KO Eddie.

Eddie might have more experience than Thor though, but if Thor slims down to a lean 170-180kg (375-400lbs) which is still huge lol, I think he can win, since he has the height advantage and all:

Here are some older videos of both boxing:
