Powerlifting: The Beast attempts NZ bench press record

From First Up, 5:33 am on 18 June 2021

Powerlifting is not an Olympic sport - but if it was, our gold medal hope would be Rotorua man-mountain Maateiwarangi Heta-Morris. And early next month the man known as The Beast will attempt a New Zealand benchpress record of over 270 kilograms at the Wolfpack Invitational meet in Christchurch. Nathan Rarere asked Maateiwarangi what weights he's lifting in preparation for the competition.
