Two medals in European / Calja grabs two medals, bronze and silver

Briken Calja never disappoints, even this time by closing the European weightlifting Championship in Moscow with two medals, bronze in doubles and silver in push.

With 336 kg in total, the red and black weightlifter was ranked third in Europe. Everything did not go as predicted at least in the detachment style where with 152 kg he was ranked in fourth place and 10 grams more than the rival.

In the push, Calja failed in the first test with 183 kg while in the second test he managed to hold up 184 kg, a weight that eventually gave him a silver medal in this style. Calja hands over the throne of the European champion but two medals in Russia are a great success for the red and black weightlifter.
