Cheick Sanou, a.k.a. “Iron Biby” is already a record holding strongman competitor. However he set another record recently, although this one was not official.
Iron Biby earned his place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most reps of overhead pressing a person within a minute. After this he found a boost in popularity, as people were attracted to his impressive strength. This was only increased when became the 2018 and 2019 World Log Press champion, establishing himself as a high level strongman.
Now Biby is taking things up a notch, with a recent post to his Instagram. In the video, he hits a massive 514lb log press, which is crazy as it is. However what makes this lift so incredible is the fact that this was an unofficial world record.
“233.5kg/ 514 lbs Unofficial all Time log lift World record was done this year during my prep for World log lift CHAMPIONSHIP. I know what i Can DO so i was being quiet. But things changed now. And i Guess many people are acting and forgetting who won the log lift CHAMPIONSHIP last year.
Got many people inboxing me and wanting to know when i will break this record.
Here IS my answer.
Because of this pandemic every professional sports in the World have been postponed. Mortality rate going up everyday. I really Care about what Happening now so i will wait & compete when things Come back to normal. The official New date of GIANTS LIVE WORLD LOG LIFT CHAMPIONSHIP is August 8th. To be crown a king you have to face all the athletes and in front of strongman fans . Thats how IT’S DONE!”
This is certainly a solid performance from Biby. If he is able to perform like this at the Log Lift Championship, it will be amazing. Of course, that is dependant on the contest taking place as planned.
