HOLY F*CK!!!  This is pretty scary!!! 

The English strongman Eddie Hall stunned the crowd at the World Deadlift Championships over the weekend by becoming the first man in history to deadlift 500 kilograms.

While the crowd at the Leeds Arena was going wild, Hall slumped to the ground and began bleeding from his nose. He said afterwards that the lift "nearly killed" him.

That nearly killed me," Hall told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

"The pressure on my body was surreal. I passed out after. I had nose bleeds. It's not healthy doing something like that.

"But I've done it. I'm sure it will be in the history books for a very long time... It's that great feeling, Like the first man on the moon, the first man to run a mile in under four minutes. And now I'm the first to deadlift half a ton."
