Shortly after Egypt’s Sherif Osman won gold at the Mexico City 2017 World Para Powerlifting Championships, Egyptian athlete Rehab Ahmed secured another gold at the same event.

The champion won the women’s competitions for the category 50 kg after lifting the amount of 113 kg. The silver medalist was Vietnamese Thi Linh Phuong who lifted 107 kg. Turkish Besra Duman lifted 106 kg and won the bronze medal.

A similar scenario happened at the 2016 Rio Paralympics where Ahmed won silver with a 104 kg lift followed by Thi Linh Puhong Dang who won bronze with a 102 kg lift.
