The Canadian was sitting on total 369kgs and assured of the Gold medal.
PNGs greatest ever lifter, Steven Kari
was sitting in 354kgs and assured of Silver. It was either Steven settle for silver or attempt the impossible.
Steven and his coach Paul Coffa decided on the latter. To lift and extra 15 kilos t o win was unheard of and impossible according to many.
STEVEN HAD NOTHING TO LOSE.

What a champion!
The winning lift.
