Other information
WINNING IN ADVERSITY
She competed at the 2018 Pan American Junior Championships in Manizales, Colombia, while she affected by an illness. Although she usually lifts in the 58kg category, her coach decided she would compete in the 63kg category instead, which would give her extra time to recover. She ended up winning gold in the clean and jerk and the overall competition. "I had a lot of confidence in myself. That was not my category. I weighed 59kg before the competition, so I gave away an advantage of four kilograms to my rivals. However I managed to win two medals." (lapatria.com, 10 Sep 2018)
