The crowd-favorite Elephant Bar Deadlift from 2016 returned this year but with bigger weights lifted and bigger men lifting. Rogue Athlete Brian Shaw took first with an impressive 991 lb. lift, followed by Jerry Pritchett’s 986 lb. deadlift. Rogue Athlete Hafthor Bjornsson rounded out the top three with a 966 lb. lift.
When the event concluded, Pritchett asked to attempt a new world-record lift of 1031 lbs., which he accomplished. View that lift here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yv7E5h57hww
