Turkish winner announced in W45

In the lightest women’s bodyweight category, Turkey’s European Champion this year, ERDOGAN Saziye triumphed. The 27-year-old lifter won the Snatch with 77kg, but could only defeat MONTERO RAMOS Ludia M (CUB) with a 1kg advance, the 2019 Pan-American Champion.

Vietnamese KHONG My Phuong wasn’t far behind either with 74kg, this year’s Junior World Champion. In the Clean and Jerk, KHONG was only able to lift 87kg, so she had no hope for another medal.

From the Turkish-Cuban duel, the European contestant emerged victorious, who cleaned 92kg, which was enough for the Silver Medal, but with 169kg in Total, she became World Champion. This required MONTERO RAMOS to finish the competition at 91kg, which put her on the fourth place in this lift, although she earned the Silver in Total with 167kg.

In the Clean and Jerk, Indonesian SETIAWATI Lisa scored gold with 95kg and could stand on the third podium with her Total result of 165kg. The bronze medal of the second lift went to the other Vietnamese participant, 2019 Asian Champion VUONG Thi Huyen.
