Jamaica will be well represented in the sport of weightlifting at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England this summer.

Chloe Whylie, Sky Norris and Omarie Mears all secured bipartite spots at the games to join Sientje Henderson, who previously qualified in ranks.

“They have worked so hard and we couldn’t be happier for them,” said Jamaica Weightlifting in a post on Instagram.

“We are so proud of them and can’t wait to see them on stage.”

Whylie and Henderson made history in February when they both medalled at the 2022 Canadian Invitational in Ontario, Jamaica’s first medals at an international weightlifting competition in 40 years.

Whylie won a silver medal in the snatch, bronze in the clean and jerk and bronze overall.

The team will be looking to replicate that success when weightlifting at the Commonwealth Games begins on July 30 and runs until August 2. The Commonwealth Games run from July 28-August 8.
