Surodchana Khambao from Thailand Won Two Bronze Medals at IWF Asian Championship 2024

Every competition always manages to surprise us with exciting results, and the Asian Championship in Tashkent this year is no different.

During the competition in the 49 kg women’s division, one of the athletes, Surodchana Khamabao, managed to win a bronze medal in both of the events – the snatch and the clean and jerk; however, that wasn’t enough to give her a spot on the podium, as she finished 4th overall.

On the Clean and Jerk, during her final attempt for the day, Surodchana managed to finally lift 106 kg, which was enough to give her the bronze medal for this move on the snatch; she managed to show high concentration and on her third attempt lifted 86 kg, which was just two kg less than second-placed Rosegie Ramos.

Even though she performed superbly in both events, her total of 190 kg left her in fourth place, and she didn’t manage to defend her bronze medal from last year’s championship. 

Before this competition, Surodchana had already made a name for herself in the 49 kg division, having won the World Championship in 2021 and finished fourth in last year’s championship in Riyadh. From last year’s Asian Championship, she had a bronze medal that she unfortunately wasn’t able to defend today, but still, her results show she could be in contention for the medals during this year’s Olympics.
