Weightlifter Erkand Qerimaj receives Silver Medal
Erkand Qerimaj received a silver medal in the breakaway style, in the weight of 73 kg, in "Oran 2022".
Qerimaj triumphed in the face of an injustice left in the attempt. The judges initially considered the test with the 149-kilogram barbell irregular, but then confirmed the regularity.
The first congratulations from Tirana were made by Erion Veliaj who wrote: "Go Albaniaaa, go Tiranaaaa! Silver medal for our Erkandi".
This victory comes a day after that of Luiza Gegë, who won the gold medal in the 3000 meter steeplechase.
