EIGHTEEEN months ago, Rachel O’Connor decided to join a Tralee gym. Now she’s just won a Bronze medal in a World Powerlifting Championships event in Canada.

Rachel, from Knockmoyle, was in Calgary with the Irish team at the weekend taking part in the 90kg class and she came third.

She only took up the sport after visiting Dynamic Strength and Conditioning Gym on High Street, run by Tipperary native Diarmuid Brennan, in April of 2018.

The former Kerins O’Rahillys footballer showed great potential and Diarmuid put her on a training and nutrition programme which saw her excel in national championships. All that hard work has paid off even further with Rachel’s bronze medal.

Diarmuid put up a post on the gym’s facebook page (below) congratulating Rachel and saying how proud he was of her success.
