Marshall Islands’ Mattie Sasser will be someone to look out for at the 2016 Oceania Weightlifting Championship next week.

Coach Terry Sasser said Mattie and Kaibati Bob won bronze medals at the 2015 Pacific Games in Port Moresby.

He said Mattie, 19, have been working hard to qualify for the Rio Olympics in August.

“Mattie is the reigning junior world champion and a record holder for the juniors,”Terry said.

“She broke the Oceania Juniors Championship at the American Open in the Unites States early this year where she won silver medal.”

Terry said the competition would be tough.

“Mattie will be trying to break all three records for the juniors but I think they both have a great chance to qualify.”
