Farmingdale Powerlifter Matt Sohmer is apparently the youngest man in the sport's history to squat-lift 800 pounds "raw."
The big event took place Saturday at York Barbell in York, Pa., and was captured on the attached YouTube video. The lift and the moment is remarkable.
Sohmer, 19, said he is training for a future chance on the U.S. Weightlifting Team and a shot at an upcoming Olympics. His lift was part of a competition sponsored by the International Powerlifting Association.
