Emirati female weightlifter Aisha Al Balushi will be representing the UAE in Rio Olympic Games, to be held in Brazil in August, officials of the Emirates Weightlifting Federation (EWF) announced Thursday in a press conference.

Al Balushi's nomination to Rio came after the UAE weightlifting team had earned second consecutive qualification.

Al Balushi, who will participate in the 58kg weight category, was part of the UAE's team at the Asian Championships in Uzbekistan in April, where she scored 22 points earning the spot for the Rio Olympics.

Sheikh Sultan bin Mejren, president of the Emirates Weightlifting Federation (EWF), dedicated the achievement to the leaders of the UAE. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395297348098.html
