IWF Asian Championships 2024: Elreen Ann Q.Ando won Silver in Total Results  (Silver in Clean & Jerk)

The third day of the Asian Championship 2024 was just as exciting as the first two, as it introduced us to new winners and even more exciting moments. In the women’s 59 kg category, we saw quite an unexpected turn of events, as one of the underdogs in the competition managed to climb onto the podium. 

Yes, we’re talking about Elreen Ann Q. Ando from the Philippines, who won two silver medals – one for the overall event and one for the Clean & Jerk lift. She finished with a total of 213 kg, lifting 93 kg in the snatch event, which left her outside the top 5 for the lift, and 120 kg on the clean & jerk, which awarded her with a silver medal for that lift and ultimately won her the silver medal for the competition as well.

Prior to these Asian Championships, Elreen had not won big in the last 3 years, finishing 8th in the World Championships in Riyadh last year and not even ranking during last year’s Asian Championship, so for her, this podium finish is more than a good result, as we get closer to the Olympics in Paris.

This second-place finish is tied with her previous silver medal in 2020 during the Asian Championships in Tashkent, where she again lifted 213 kg – so this might well be her lucky spot.
