Nauru Government celebrates powerlifting world dominance

Government Ministers David Adeang, Tawaki Kam, and Aaron Cook were on hand to welcome gold medallist Jezza back to Nauru on Sunday 23  June, and the celebrations continued last week with a special event at the Meneñ Hotel to honour the efforts of all competitors.

Jezza took the honours in Sweden in the World Classic in the super heavyweight +120kg class after the USA’s Ray Williams failed with three opening squats at 440 kilograms.
