More importantly, by taking the 90-kilogram gold for Fiji on the Gold Coast, she has become the first woman to do it in the history of the Commonwealth Games.
After a disagreement with Fiji’s weightlifting regulatory body about where she should train, Cikamatana moved to Australia shortly after the Gold Coast Games.
Cikamatana displayed her immense potential in Birmingham, but she was still ineligible when the Olympics were held in Tokyo, thus she was unable to compete there.
With a snatch lift of 110 kilogrammes, Cikamatana broke the Olympic Games record in the category. Her first try at a clean and jerk with 129 kilogrammes put her in the lead.
The clean and jerk and Games records were both broken by Cikamatana’s second lift of 137 kg, which also earned him the gold medal.
