Nate Yelton sets new national squat record

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - If you look at Nate Yelton, you wouldn't think he was the strongest man in the country.

Yelton recently broke the drug-free national record for his age and weight class in Chicago, squatting 1,008 pounds.

"It was heavy," said Yelton. "It was a lot of adrenaline."

Yelton was a former offensive lineman for Coe College and helped the Kohawks win a conference title.

He'll compete in the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio on Feb. 28.
