IN last week’s Kildare Nationalist we featured 16 year old Rathangan student Oisin Smith who was about to set off to represent Ireland at the World Powerlifting Championships in Porto, Portugal.

On Wednesday we can proudly report that the young Kildare man, who has played rugby with Cill Dara RFC and GAA with Rathangan, set three World Records at the competition. In the Back Squat Oisin lifted 160kgs, followed by 90kgs in the Bench Press and he concluded with a 190kgs in the Deadlift.
A remarkable achievement for one so young and one who only took up the sport three years ago.
Oisin will return home on Friday to what should be a very warm Rathangan welcome.
