Matthew McCoy and Angelo Iannetta break records in Kilkeel

In Kilkeel as part of the 11th Night Celebrations the Irish Strength Association carried out a number of Irish and World Record attempts.  Angelo Iannetta of Co.Wexford and Matthew McCoy of Co.Antirm were the 2 competitors that were going to challenge their feats of strength.  The first record that was attempted was the UK record of the Husafelt stone walk which was 76 metres which is held by Ben Thomson of Scotland.  Matthew McCoy attempted this record and fell short with 75 metres. This was a remarkable fight but when it comes to the UK Strongest Man in Belfast I am sure he will smash the record.  The second record was a car deadlift for reps of 250KG.  The Irish Record was 20 reps in 90 seconds.  Angelo completed 21 repetitions in 90 seconds to break the record.  The third record attempt was the 110KG log for reps which was attempted by Angelo Iannetta.  Angelo was only able to press 5 times which meant his record attempt was unsuccessful. The final record of the day was the World Record attempt of 2 minutes 3 seconds in the car deadlift hold which was attempted by Matthew McCoy.  This event is in the Junior World Championships in the coming months and the UK Strongest Man so he wanted to send a message to the rest of the competitors.  Matthew smashed the record with 2 minutes 10 seconds.  Well done to Matthew and Angelo for their record attempts and Kilkeel for hosting this ISA event.  We will see you at the next ISA event near you.
