Former Fijian women weightlifter and 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medalist Eileen Cikamatana is now an Australian citizen.

She is now eligible to represent Australia at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

She was fully cleared by the International Weightlifting Federation executive board meeting held in Thailand, to represent Australia internationally which came into effect immediately after that.

Her first tournament will be at the Australian Senior Championships to be held in Canberra, Australia, from October 19-20.

With the possibility, a week later to compete as a guest at the European Juniors in Romania. Also, in November, she has been invited to compete in Lima, Peru during the IWF Grand Prix.

Again in December at the IWF World Cup in Qatar.

Australia as a country is very proud of having this young prodigy wearing our green and gold colours.
