The 19-year-old Cuban weightlifter, Ediel Marquez, came away from the first Summer Youth Olympic Games, in Singapore in 2010, as a bronze medallist in the Men’s 69kg event, lifting an impressive 283kg.

And since Singapore and his jubilatory win for Cuba, the young athlete has continued to improve.

Last week, Ediel added another medal to his collection. The rising star won silver in the snatch event at the World Youth Weightlifting Championships in Lima, Peru, finishing in fifth place overall with a final score of 298kg.

We look forward to seeing the YOG graduate’s future achievements, but for now, relive Ediel’s bronze medal-winning performance at Singapore 2010.
