Uepa broke his record of 426.5 kilograms in the squat to lift, by a massive 13.5 kilograms, now making his record 440 kilograms.
Speaking from the event Digicel Nauru CEO, Ben Kealy commented: “Jezza’s effort this evening (Saturday) was remarkable. Jezza is very focused with his competitions and does not take any event lightly. We are very proud to be associated with Jezza and to support him on his sporting journey as heaves his road to the Commonwealth Championship in New Zealand.”
Jezza will next compete at Christchurch, New Zealand in December for the Oceania & Asia Commonwealth Championship where he will ‘officially’ attempt the 440Kg world record.
