Rosegie Ramos, a 20-year-old weightlifter from Zamboanga City, Philippines, has successfully claimed her spot in the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics.

After winning the women’s 49-kilogram Group B division and lifting 87 kg in the snatch and 103 kg in the clean and jerk for a total of 190 kg, she had clearly paved her way to the biggest sports event in the world. 

Along with boxers Eumir Marcial, Aira Villegas, and Nesthy Petecio, gymnasts Carlos Yulo and Aleah Finnegan, and pole vaulter EJ Obiena, Ramos is now a member of the Filipino athletes headed for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Ramos – Current Ranking

Ramos is the current Asian Junior Champion in the women’s 49-kg class. To qualify for the Olympic Games, she had to maintain her current ranking in the Summer Games. With her determination and commitment,  she presently ranked eighth place in the Olympic rankings after five qualifying events. 

She bravely declared: “All the hard work was worth it. I’m going to Paris.”

Ramos has been working out at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila and has been closely monitored by her coach, Tony Agustin. 

“I’m still targeting a specific lift where I could compete with the best in the weight category. I’ve been working on it every day and hopefully achieve the goal in the Olympics,’’ said Ramos.
