disfucktional:

this is matthais 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 (which is an enormous amount at that level) more than he’d ever lifted. this is the video of his attempt at the gold medal.
