For some, weightlifting is just rough people who raise many kg, for others it is a sport and for a few it is their philosophy of life. After the last medals of Lidia Valentín, the weightlifting has taken a certain protagonism in the sports press. But, how is the future of the sport? Is there a quarry? The answer has a proper name or rather, proper names. Let's talk about two of them, the first of them is Noelia Caballero.
We can say that Noelia is the recent and current European champion, making 6 valid attempts of 6 possible.Oro in a throwing lifting 85kg, gold in two times with a mark of 102kg totaling an Olympic total of 187kg that served him Noelia to add another gold and proclaim herself queen of Europe sub 17.
In his 7 years in the weightlifting Noelia does not stop to grow his collection of medals. Bronze in his first championship of Spain of technique and champion the following year. Second place in his first Spanish championship in weight lifting. Several medals in different championships of Spain and even international as the 2nd place obtained in the memorial Manuel Suárez de Cuba. Going through the European Championship three times and proclaiming herself the champion in the last.
We are sure that his dedication, perseverance and attitude will make Noelia's record even bigger.
The second is Marcos Ruiz and like Noelia, his record is impressive.
