Tokyo Paralympics champion Bonnie Bunyau Gustin retain his status as the world champion at the 2021 World Para Powerlifting Championships in Tbilisi, Georgia, on Thursday night, December 2.
Bonnie, a Serian born Sarawakian, dominated the men's 72kg category right from the beginning.
He secured the world championship with a 210kg lift, beating China's Peng Hu.
"I was extremely happy with the win in Tokyo, and this is my second gold at the World Championship. The only setback is that I could not beat my world record this time around," said Bonnie via an interview with the International Federation of Paralympic Powerlifting.
Congratulations to Bonnie! You have always made Sarawak proud!
