Colombian Leidy Yessenia SOLIS (in 69kg) and Apti AUKHADOV from Russia (in 85kg) were elected by the IWF Press Commission as the Best Female and Best Male Lifters of the 2010 Junior World Championships in Sofia. Solis, who – despite her junior age – can already boast significant international success and world medals, was the happy recipient of the “Eleiko-IWF Press Commission Trophy” for the women; while only 18-year-old rookie from Russia, Apti Aukhadov could rejoice over taking the “Eleiko-IWF Press Commission Trophy” for the men. The beautiful trophies were presented to the winners in Sofia at the Closing Banquet by Sam COFFA, IWF Vice President and Kornél JANCSÓ, Editor-in-Chief of World Weightlifting.
