Power Para-lifting: Oyema targets new record in World championships in Lagos

By - - [General ]

Esther Oyema, world record holder in para power lifting, said her target is to set another record in the forthcoming World Championships in Lagos slated for January 28 to 30.

The indoor event is scheduled to take place at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos.

Oyema broke her standing record of 141.6 lift in women’s lightweight at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia in April 2018.

She, however, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that she was optimistic of further breaking the record, adding that she was preparing hard for the tournament.

The Edo-born para-power lifter, who won silver at the 19th National Sports Festival (NSF), 2018 in Abuja, said many people expected her to win gold medal at the festival.

She, however, said she was not under pressure to contest for the gold medal in Lagos next month but promised to do her best.

“I am happy about the silver medal, though a lot of people expected me to win the gold medal at the NSF.

“I am not putting myself under any pressure; I will definitely do my best at the world championship, as my target is to set a new record.

“Though training has not been easy due to lack of facilities in Edo, but I am doing the best I can and hopefully, it will turn out right in the end,” she said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Oyema lifted 133 kg to erase 126 kg in the 65kg weight class she set previously at the 2015 African Games in Congo Brazzaville.
