Malaysia’s weightlifters Hafifi Mansor and Azroy Hazalwafie successfully clinched golds at the Commonwealth qualifier that took place in Gold Coast, Australia.
Azroy Hazalwafie aced the men’s 56kg category to bag gold.
Hafifi Mansor contested in the 69kg category, lifting 137kg in snatch and 170kg in clean and jerk to ace the event.
Hafifi Mansor was ruled out of the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games after he was deemed “not active enough”.
After that set-back, Hafifi shifted his focus towards the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth qualifier – and it looks like his handwork has paid off.
Both Hafifi and Azroy have secured their spots in the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games next year.
