Another great contest within the WWC Qualifying event in 2023 with lots of catchy and dramatic moments happened on Sunday, the 10th of September in Riyadh. The next pile of female weightlifters all around the world gathered in the major contest arena to take the leadership in the category of Women’s 64 kg.
Overall, the performance was quite dramatic and the atmosphere was thick: literally, a silver and bronze holders were one point behind the leader. So, we can admit that medalists were almost equal.

I’m Tanya, and I love lifting weights. 6 years ago, I picked up Olympic weightlifting and fitness. Weightlifting is a unique sport because it’s just you against the bar. There are no teammates to help you out; it’s all on you.
I’m also passionate about helping other women achieve their fitness goals. That’s why I started my blog and write some products reviews. I want to show other women that they can do anything they set their mind to!
