Xinyi Pei won Bronze in the Clean and Jerk in the Women’s 59 kg Category At the 2024 IWF Weightlifting World Cup

The 2024 IWF World Cup, held in Thailand, marks the ultimate opportunity for athletes to secure their spots in the upcoming Olympic Games slated for later in the summer.

As their Olympic aspirations are hanging in the balance, the anticipation for this final event is at an all-time high. We all expect to see exceptional performances from some of the best weightlifters in the world, and so far, we haven’t been disappointed.

The women’s 59 kg category delivered yet another memorable showdown, as some of the favorites missed their chance to podium.

For Xinyi Pei of China, the competition didn’t start according to plan. She managed to lift 103 kg on the Snatch, which left her in 4th place – 3 kg behind the third-placed Canadian.

During the Clean & Jerk, the Chinese lifter managed to bounce back, lifting 130 kg on her first attempt, which was enough to give her the bronze medal for this event.

Unfortunately, her two missed C&J of 134 kg are what left her outside of the podium for the category, as she finished in 4th place, just behind Canadian Maude G Charron. 

In her career so far, Xinyi Pei has won the World Championships once in 2022, and last year, she got the bronze medal at the World Championships in Riyadh.
