Here we have the great Egyptian weightlifter Sayed Nosseir deadlifting what looks to be about 400 lbs. at a festival in Berlin in 1935. Nosseir won the Gold Medal in the light-heavyweight class at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympic games with a 355 kg total (Press: 100 kg. — Snatch: 112.5 kg. — Clean & Jerk: 142.5 kg.). (This was Egypt’s first ever Gold Medal, btw.) Over his career, Nosseir set 12 World records: four each in the snatch, clean & jerk, and total.
