Chinese weightlifter Li Fabin weighs 166 kg on one leg.

Chinese weightlifter Li Fabin not only won the gold medal in weightlifting in the 61kg category this weekend, but was able to lift 166kg by grabbing one leg.

This happened during his first attempt at cleanliness and stupidity – weightlifting is divided into two tests: snatch and clean and stupid – where the athlete must keep the weight with his whole body.

There, Fabin did a maneuver that forced him to weigh 166 kg –Almost three times your own body weight– On his left leg.
