Limavady’s Hugh McCloskey only took up the sport of wrestling two years ago but has gold medals to his name in the Ulster, Irish, Welsh and Maltese Championships. The 22 year-old will compete in the 97kg category.

Norik Koczarian was born in Moscow and started wrestling in 1999 when he was 13. In 2006 he moved to Ireland where after three years of being absent from the sport he came back to wrestling and is now looked after by National, Commonwealth and Talent Development Coach John O’Rawe.
