Rose Jean Ramos on Monday extended his reign at the Weightlifting Federation Youth World Championships, announcing the president of the Philippine local sports body is ready for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

The 17-year-old from Zamboanga City won two gold and one silver in the 45-kilogram division, winning her title for the third consecutive edition of the tournament where the world’s best youth lifters saw action in Leon, Mexico.

Among the youngsters, there is nothing more to prove Ramos, said Moniko Puentevela, president of Samhang Weightlifting NG Pilipinas (SWP), who helped Hidelin Diaz with nails to win the country’s first gold medal at the Games in Tokyo last year. .

“Here we are in Paris 2024. We are making a roll, we have beaten the best in the world. We can do it,” Ramos told the Puntevela Inquirer halfway around the world just an hour after receiving his medal.

Ramos lifted 70 kg in his third attempt to snatch the silver medal, but Clean & Jerk advanced with a total effort of 85 kg for 155 kg of gold with an effort of 85 kg.

Venezuela’s Kerlis Maria Montila is second with a total of 153 after winning the snatch with 71 and third with a clean and jerk with 82.

India’s Soumya Sunil Dalvi (148) is third, Clean & Jerk (83) is second but Snatch (65) is fifth.

Turpun, one of Diaz’s worthy successors, improved his total lifting of 147kg during the Ramos held in Jeddah last year.

Puentevela thanked the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) and the MVP Sports Foundation for their full support of Ramos’ visit, as well as coach Allen Diaz and the entire SWP family.

“He (Ramos) is following the same path as Heidelin. With enough support, he will win medals for the country in big tournaments as well, “said Puentevela.

Diaz, the country’s first Olympic gold medalist, made his humble start at the PSC Batang Pinoy Games before making his four Olympic appearances as a 17-year-old at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Like Diaz, Ramos also became the champion of Batang Pinoy Games. INQ
