Weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz wins her first SEA Games gold


Winning a gold medal in the 30th SEA Games put a huge smile on Hidilyn Diaz.

The Filipina weightlifter won in the women’s 55-kg division on Monday, lifting a combined 211-kg in the snatch and the clean-and-jerk in front of her parents, and with the whole Philippines behind her.

This is Hidilyn’s first gold medal in the Southeast Asian Games, who already has an Olympic silver medal and an Asian Games gold medal in her collection.
