Tian Tao, a weightlifter from China, has taken another monstrous lift once again. Just two weeks ago, Tao performed his huge 617 lbs. front squat and now he’s surprising everyone again.
Tian shared a video on his Instagram page recently, showing an extremely heavy clean. Lots of followers and fans say it to be 507 lbs. The way he made the lift look is even more impressive. At first, it is difficult to say what the weight on the bar is; 507 lbs. are just a guess.
However, it’s difficult to say whether Tao completed the lift or went for it for that matter.
Here are some things to keep in mind about Tao’s Instagram video. The athlete didn’t share his current bodyweight. But it’s possible to suppose he’s a bit heavier than he’s competed previously. In the past, his weight was 85 kg. It looks like he’s moving towards his 89 kg. Regardless of his current weight, the lift in the video is still huge.
The video has sparked more questions than answers; however, we all should expect something exciting from Tian Tao in the nearest future. We will keep watching Tao and see what he will do in the nearest competition!
