OWF PRESS RELEASE TULO IN RECORD FORM



Sensational  Junior weightlifter, Manueli Tulo  (IOC 2012 Olympics Scholarship holder)  last Saturday November 20,  competing in the City of Moindou in New Caledonia, reset the Oceania Junior record book  by  breaking the Clean & jerk  record with his second attempt at 136Kg. He then came out on his third attempt with a successful world standard lift of 140Kg. The previous record was 134kg which he set last May in Suva during the Oceania Championships.

 

Tulo competing in the 56Kg category, snatched only his first attempt on 105Kg , missing his second and third attempt on 110kg. This would have given him a New Oceania Junior record. He holds the snatch record of 106Kg.

 

Nevertheless by snatching 105kg and Clean & jerking 140kg, Tulo set a new Oceania and South Pacific Junior total record of 245kg (the previous record was 240Kg).

 

Tulo presently ranks first in the Oceania and South Pacific Senior rankings in the 56kg category and also first in the Oceania and South Pacific Junior rankings.

 

Manueli will be competing next month in Penang, Malaysia at the Commonwealth Junior Championships and IWF Continental Clubs Grand Prix, which is an Olympic qualification event for individual athletes for the 2012 Olympics. 

 

Below are the records that Tulo set last Saturday.
