Reason: Started weightlifting at age 23. "I picked up weightlifting in my final year of university. I was looking to get in better shape and had been doing some calisthenics training on my own. Olympic weightlifting was being offered as a free try-it class coached by Richard GONSALVES, a student-athlete. I went in on the first day back at school and was hooked." (, 7 Jul 2015;, 25 Jul 2016)

Hero: Chinese weightlifter WANG Mingjuan. (Facebook, 6 Jun 2017)
