Barry’s Nathan Szuchnik breaks Welsh Dumbbell record

There is a new record for lifting a dumbbell in Wales and it’s a Barry person who now holds it. Nathan Szuchnik, a roofer by trade broke the record for lifting a dumbbell with one arm last week. The total weight he lifted was 105KG. You can check it out in the video below.

Nathan has been doing ‘Strongman’ competitions for the past 3 years, entering 12 competitions in total and winning 9 of them, which is a remarkable achievement. He competed in the recent strongman Champion League in Norway and is currently the 2nd ‘Strongest Man’ in Wales in the Under 105KG.

Nathan also has another Strongman Competition coming up in 2 weeks time, but his main focus is now on the ‘Wales Strongest Man’ Competition in April 2017, where he will be competing in the Under 105KG category again.

Nathan told The Daily Vale that he was going to win the Strongman Competition in April and then qualify for Britain’s and Europe’s Strongman competition later next year.

We wish Nathan all the best and we’ll keep you update on the progress.
