Lovely Vidal Inan caught Asian junior champion Rosegie Ramos on a bad day to rule the women’s 49kg category of the Smart-Samahang Weightlifting ng Pilipinas National Open Championships in Tagbiliran, Bohol.

According to national coach Allen Diaz, the 19-year-old Ramos has been nursing a fever.

Ramos, who brought home three gold medals in the same weight class at the recent Asian Youth and Junior Weightlifting Championships in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, managed to squeeze a victory in the snatch with an 82 on her third and last try.

Placing third was Jhodie Peralta, who recorded 65kg in the snatch and 83 in the clean and jerk for a total lift of 148.
