    Steve Macdonald
    In the Strongman competition, Steve became the second man in history to ever lift the 525 pound stone. He lifted the stone faster than the previous record holder and subsequently was awarded the new world record for this accomplishment.






    I realize its a world record and only two people have done it, but I don't know a lot about the sport. Is that like, insane?

    maine...i have lifted a 240 stone fucking around...i couldnt even fathom rolling a 525lb one nevermind picking it up, its no so much the weight by itself, its so akward and painful to hold even at 240. I can practically throw 240 in the gym. I had trouble with the rock though
