Stefano Cataldi, competed in the Men 89kg category at the Junior World Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico, demonstrated his strength and skill in the snatch, successfully lifting 135kg and 140kg, just missed out on the 143kg. Despite his valiant efforts in the clean and jerk, Cataldi faced challenges, unable to secure a lift at 173kg. We are confident that Stefano Cataldi will come back stronger, ready to conquer new heights in his future competitions.
