Kim Iseul won Bronze in Snatch in the Women’s 81 kg Category at the 2024 IWF Weightlifting World Cup

As we’re heading into the last days of the IWF World Cup in Thailand, it is time for the heavyweight categories to start showing out.

With Olympic qualification on the line and expectations running high, the competition day could have easily turned into a disaster.

However, the women competing in the 81 kg category once again showcased their resilience and performed in a fantastic manner with their coveted Olympic spots hanging in the balance.

In a shocking turn of events, Korean lifter Kim Iseul, who started from Group C, was able to get ahead of the competition in the Snatch lift. She managed to lift 115 kg, which was just enough to surpass Australian lifter Eileen Cikamatana and win the bronze medal for the exercise.
