VIDEO: Name a more freakish natural athlete ...

WATCH as we bring you some of the best moments of former Springbok No.8 Pierre Spies – a freakish athlete if there ever was one!


With 53 Tests for South Africa, the man who also featured on the wing for a short while, played more than 200 first-class games – for the Boks, Bulls, Japan’s Liners and Montpellier.

At the height of his career Spies could power clean 135kg, dead-lift 240kg, bench-press 165kg and do pull-ups with a 50kg weight between his legs.

He could also jump 1.4m onto a raised platform and had a body-fat percentage of 6.5.
