Powerlifter Ray Williams made history this weekend at the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio when he squatted a whopping 477.5kg (1,053lb) raw.

The event, which featured an array of strength and sport disciplines from March 2-5, hosted (literal) tons of impressive feats of strength, but Williams stood out with his record-breaking squat.

Williams became the first ever powerlifter to squat over 1,000lb raw last year, has been working his way to greater accomplishments at the Arnold Classic this year.
