    The AWF has put out a press release that confirms that Eileen has officially been granted Australian citizenship, and has been cleared by the IWF to represent Australia at international tournaments.

    I expect we will see some exciting lifting from this remarkable young woman over the coming years.

    Anyone wanna take bets that she receives a tripartite invitation?

    I don't think Australia can receive a tripartite invitation. They're not on the list of qualifying NOCs.

    The Australian National Championships were held over the weekend. '

    Cikamatana did 105/110/115x and 130/140/150x at a bodyweight of 83.40 for a 283.870 Sinclair.

    The AIS has posted a video of her 110kg power snatch and 140kg power clean on instagram:

    She somehow competed at Euro juniors with 110/150/260.

    The European Juniors is a gold level qualifying event.

    Would a guest lifter still be able to earn gold level ROBI points for their guest appearance?

    It's an interesting question.

    I notice that her 150 clean and jerk equalled the Junior World Record Standard for the W87 class

    Does that count as a new Junior world record? Or does the record standard need to be exceeded by 1kg for it to count?

    +1 is necessary.

    I also doubt extra/guest lifters can set records outside of classification.

    I got out of bed and watched the IWF Grand Prix footage from Lima.

    Cikamatana did 110/115x/115 and 143/148/151. This gave her gold in the snatch, silver in the clean & jerk, and gold in the total (4kg ahead ahead of the Chinese lifter Ao Hui).

    But perhaps more importantly she secured the W87 junior world record with her 151 clean and jerk.
