I competed in the junior age category and won gold in every type. My final results: squats – 170 kg, bench press – 140 kg, deadlift – 230 kg. Speaking on the bench press, after the first approach I wanted to break the record of Europe in this category – 153 kg. Unfortunately, I couldn’t, but the result of the first approach was enough to stay first.
