IWF Asian Championship 2024: Natasya Beteyob won Bronze in Total Results (Silver in Snatch and Bronze in Clean & Jerk)

The Asian Championships 2024 are in full swing, and the third competition day was just as exciting as the first two, especially considering the unexpected results we got in the women’s 59 kg division. 

After competing in the 55 kg division and having some success there, Natasya Beteyob finally got good results in the 59 kg category as well, managing to win three medals in total. The Indonesian lifter began shakily lifting 96 kg on her third attempt, which was enough to give her the silver medal for the lift.

On the clean &  jerk, she was not feeling as strong and managed to get only 116 kg on the scoreboard after her second attempt. However, that was enough to give her the bronze medal for this lift. And so, with one silver and one bronze medal and 213 kg in total, Beteyob placed 3rd overall and got her first podium finish for the year.
