Commonwealth Games 2022: Former beauty queen Sarah Davies wins weightlifting gold against Harjinder Kaur
Former Miss Leeds and Miss Intercontinental England Sarah Davies won the gold medal in Harjinder Kaur's category, lifting 229 Kg.
England secured another gold medal at the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022 when former beauty queen Sarah Davies won the gold medal in Women's 71 Kg weightlifting after lifting 229 Kg.
She clearly dominated the match as her nearest competitor Alexis lifted 15 Kg less than her and won the silver medal. Indian Harjinder Kaur won the bronze medal with a lift of 212 Kg. It was dramatic as the Nigerian who was slated to win Gold failed in all her attempts.
Sarah Davies before coming into weightlifting was a beauty queen. She won the pageant title of Miss Leeds and Miss Intercontinental England before turning into a weightlifter.
Davies won the silver medal at World Championships 2021 and silver at 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
Sarah holds six different British records across two different categories.
