Rose Jean Ramos, a weightlifter who is only 19 years old but has already won a bronze medal at the Asian Championships, maybe “ready for the 2028 Olympics” in Los Angeles.
It’s possible that the road to the Olympics has just begun for another weightlifter hailing from Zamboanga.
The most recent Asian Championships were held in Manama, Bahrain, where Rose Jean Ramos, who is only 17 years old, won a bronze medal in the competition. She displayed enormous promise by keeping up with the more experienced competitors despite the fact that the competition was not an Olympic qualifier.
Monico Puentevella, the chief of the Samahang Weightlifting ng Pilipinas (SWP), lauded his teenage prodigy for rising to the challenge that was presented to him.
Rose Jean Ramos is going to compete in the Olympics someday. We challenged her to compete against the seniors in the Asian Championships despite the fact that she was the youngest competitor at 17 years old, and she still managed to win bronze,” Puentevella said in an interview with Rappler.

“Despite being six years older than the gold medallist in her division, Rose Jean Ramos came through the competition uninjured.” She will be in her prime for the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles. This is how we cultivate future champions,” he went on to say.
After coming in third place behind the Indonesian Siti Nafisatul Hariroh (91kg) and the Vietnamese Khong My Phuong (85kg), Ramos was awarded a bronze medal for her performance in the clean-and-jerk competition in the women’s 45-kilogram class (88kg).
Rose Jean Ramos, who has won many junior world titles, came within one kilogram of earning a bronze medal in the snatch competition. She lifted 67 kilograms, but her competitor from India, Harshada Garud, was able to lift 68 kg.
At the Asian Championships, in contrast to the Olympic competition, medals are given out in all three categories, including the total lift.
The best weightlifters in the country chose against participating in the competition because they wanted to put all of their energy into preparing for the World Weightlifting Championships, which will be held in Bogota, Colombia, in December.
Olympic gold winner Hidilyn Diaz, who has motivated many of her fellow Zamboanguenos to take up the sport, will be leading a nine-person delegation in the renowned meet, in which they hope to secure an early ticket to the 2024 Paris Games.
On the women’s side, world champion Vanessa Sarno will be joining her, as will fellow Tokyo Olympian Elreen Ando, Kristel Macrohon, and Rosegie Ramos. On the men’s side, former Olympian Nestor Colonia, John Ceniza, and John Pacaldo will serve as the leaders of the delegation.
