this is matthais steiner. he’s a german olympic weightlifter in the highest weight category. he once made a promise to his wife. a promise that one day he would win a gold medal in the olympics and be the strongest man in the world. he trained for years for this, and just a month before he would go on to compete, his wife tragically died in a car accident. in order to break the record, he’d need to lift 20 kilograms (which is an enormous amount at that level) more than he’d ever lifted. this is the video of his attempt at the gold medal.
i feel like this is in the spirit of the current times even though this was 4 years ago
this shit gave me chills and made me tear up.
We can do anything.
Always loved Audrey Kawasakis work.
Ghostly transparent, beautiful and always amazing.
Holy shit this annoys me so fucking much. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A BRITISH ACCENT. However, there are English, Irish, Welsh, and Scottish accents. And what really annoys me, is when people say ‘British’ accents, they mean English accents. Grr.
I hear this every day and I still find this country better than my own.
