In addition to his Olympic lifting prowess and two appearances on the Olympic team, Hamman is also the IPF World Record holder in the squat with 457.7kg (1008 pounds), a record that has stood since 1996!! Hamman is arguably the most successful powerlifting to Olympic lifting crossover athlete in history.
