Fatima Rummun passed away

It is with great sorrow that the IWF was informed about the death of Mrs. Fatima Rummun (MRI).

Mrs. Rummun was one of the very few female National Federation leaders and technical official in the 90’s. She worked hard to upgrade the sport of weightlifting in Mauritius and took an active part in the development of African weightlifting as well.

Mrs. Rummun long suffered from a cancer which finally took over her health.

On behalf of the Weightlifting Family, the IWF wants to present its deepest condolences to the Mauritius Weightlifting Federation, to Mr. Bhollah Poorun, Mrs. Rummun’s son and her Family.
