RECORD-BREAKING weightlifter Myren Madden is set to represent Great Britain for the second time at next month’s EWF European Youth Championships in Israel.

The 17-year-old, who attends Royal Grammar School Worcester, continues to take the weightlifting scene by storm, extending his own British records at the British Midland Championships.

After exceeding personal bests by lifting 117kg in ‘snatch’ and 142kg in ‘clean and jerk’, Madden was selected to compete at the EWF European Youth Championships.

Madden, who is part of Worcester Warriors’ academy, said he was “overwhelmed” to be given another chance to compete for his country.

“The British Midland Championships was one of my toughest competitions to date,” Madden said. “Not only was there some stiff competition but the timing and waits between lifts meant exceeding my personal bests was a big challenge. I am overwhelmed to be representing my country again. I’m giving 110 per cent to my training so I’m aiming for a great result in Israel.”

Can he run???
