Competing on Tuesday in the 77kg ‘B’ Group, Capital Strength’s Cathal Byrd had a great performance at the European Senior Championships in Tbilisi, Georgia.


In the Snatch he finished with 115kg – a little less than he would have liked – but in the Clean & Jerk he went 3/3 making 150kg on his opener; than jumping to 155kg for a new National Record at 77kg; and finishing with 157kg to break the national Record once more on his third attempt.

It was a phenomenal performance from our most experienced international competitor and we’re delighted with such a great result. Check out the “coaches eye” video!
