“In the Bavarian Stone Lift, you have to pull a weight of 254 kg up to one meter, and if you do so 25 kg will be added,” Juergen Scherer explained when he first reported Wildauer’s most recent success to IronMind®.
“So he pulled:
254 kg - 1 m
275 kg - 1 m
300 kg - 1 m
325 kg - 1 m
350 kg - 94 cm - New World Record,” Scherer continued.
Heinz Ollesch, himself the 1991 German Stone Lifting champion and the 12-time winner of Germany’s Strongest Man contest told IronMind® that he is “training and coaching” Wildauer, so the Deadlift Kid’s youth and talent are backed up by the knowledge and experience of a seasoned professional.
“This guy is unbelievable. I hope he will get a chance to compete in a qualifier for World’s Strongest Man,” Ollesch said.
