Benedikt Magnússon sets world records for deadlift and best interview

Thursday August 14th, 2014

Benedikt Magnússon set a new world record for the deadlift at the Europe's strongest man competition with a 1016.33 lbs. lift and when a reporter tried to ask him about his feat immediately afterwards, he gave a great, if confused interview.

Maybe this will inspire Gregg Poppovich to enter into the world of competitive weightlifting.
