MANILA, Philippines-Rose Jean Ramos replicated her previous achievement at the 2022 International Weightlifting Federation Youth World Championships, winning two gold and one silver medal in the women’s 45kg category.
The 17-year-old from Zamboanga City has now ruled his department for three years in a row, topping the online event hosted by Peru in 2020, the 2021 edition being physically held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, before his recent acquisition.
Ramos, who is coached by Allen Diaz, lifted 80kg in his third attempt to win silver, but won a pair of gold for himself in the clean and jerk with a total effort of 85kg, 155kg in the 85kg effort.
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.
Trooping as one of the worthy successors of Olympic gold medalist Heidelin Diaz, Ramos improved his total lifting to 147kg during the Youth World Championships in Lyon, Mexico last year.
Moniko Puntevela, president of Samhang Weightlifting NP Philippines, thanked the Philippine Sports Commission and the MVP Sports Foundation for their full support of Ramos’ world tour.
