Hidilyn Diaz unleashed the strength needed to win three gold medals at the 2020 World Cup in Rome (Italy).
Diaz, the country's weightlifting hero at the Asian Games and the Southeast Asian Games, expanded her gold medal collection to include the World Championships with a 93 kg lift before she also won the flawless and jerky title.
She carried a weight of 119 kg when cleaning and jerking for a total of 212 kg, which ensured her dominance in the 55 kg category of women.
The Ukrainian Kamila Konotop took second place with 196 kg, and the Tunisian Nouha Landoulsi chose the overall bronze (194 kg).
Konotop (90 kg) and Landoulsi (86 kg) also put silver and bronze in their pockets, while the Russian Kristina Novitskaia (109 kg) won the silver in the Clean and Ruck.
Meanwhile, John Fabuar Ceniza secured a bronze medal in the men's class.
The Cebuano rallied to land on the medal podium after lifting 152 kg on its last attempt to compensate for 117 kg of tearing effort.
22-year-old Ceniza achieved a total win of 269 in both competitions, an achievement sufficient for third place in the men's category with 61 kg behind the winner Tuan Kim Thach from Vietnam and the silver medalist Shota Mishvelidze from Georgia.
Thach carried 293 kg after posting 161 in the Clean and Jerk and 132 in the Snatch to defeat eight other contenders while Mishvelidze compiled 286. INQ
