David Liti broke the oldest New Zealand record

Last Sunday, 23rd September, David Liti broke the oldest New Zealand record of 175kg Snatch in the +105kg bodyweight category, previously held by Nigel Avery – 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist.

Liti snatched 176kg to break the record by 1kg.

The New Zealand National Championships produced some excellent results and an impressive number of competitors took part.

The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist received the Yvette William Scholarship from the New Zealand Olympic Committee. The scholarship is valued at NZD$25,000 and takes him through to the Tokyo Olympics.

This will be of great assistance to this young superstar.
