Another day, another Games clue from Dave Castro. After revealing the Concept 2 would make an appearance in Team Event 1, we now know from his Instagram page Event 1 will also include the four-person deadlift. Here’s the video Castro recently posted.
It appears to be an axle bar, to make for an even more difficult grip. Several blue plates are stacked, for what looks to be a total weight of over 800 pounds.
We still don’t know the exact details of the event, but athletes better get ready to lift some serious weight.
