Underscoring his determination to continue striving for excellence in the sport despite missing out on a medal, 32-year-old Charlie Lolohea who is a seasoned weightlifter and dedicated firefighter, made his mark in the senior men's 96kg category at the Oceania Weightlifting Championships in Auckland, New Zealand.

With a weightlifting journey spanning 15 years, Lolohea's experience and dedication were evident as he managed to snatch 115kg and clean and jerk 141kg.

Despite the performance during the competition, Lolohea's valiant effort and never-say-die attitude were on full display throughout the competition.

Lolohea, who serves his community as a firefighter, embodies the spirit of perseverance both in his profession and on the weightlifting platform.

His commitment to pushing through challenges and giving his all resonates not only with his fellow athletes but also with spectators.

In a statement, Lolohea expressed that this is not the last the weightlifting community will see of him, underscoring his determination to continue striving for excellence in the sport.
