New records for Pulis in the Mediterranean Games

June 23, 2013

Rodmar Pulis, as a part of the chosen contingent by the MOC has just participated in the 17th edition of the Mediterranean Games in Mersin, Turkey. During this competition the athlete has been accompanied by his coach, Jesmond Caruana.

Despite being the youngest athlete competing in the under 77kg category, Rodmar Pulis had a flying start where he completed successfully all lifts in the Snatch. Furthermore, lifting against Olympians has motivated him to do his best and break two national records, thus finishing the Snatch event with a lift of 105kg.

Unfortunately, as soon as he started warming up for the Clean and Jerks, Pulis suffered from severe cramps and had to resign from the competition. This was a pity because he was well prepared for the second part, in which he could have obtained easily the 7th place from the 9 competitors.

The Snatch Event was won by Ramzi Bahloul from Tunisia, and the Clean and Jerk was won by Ibrahim Abdelbaki from Egypt.
