San Jacinto High School graduate Sarah Robles has won a medal for the United States in the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
America’s and the I.E.’s own Sarah Robles lifted 286 total, with 126 in the snatch and 160 in the clean and jerk winning her a bronze medal.
Press Enterprise reports that after she made her last lift, she sank to her knees and gave a gleeful roar and then blew a kiss to the crowd.
It’s been 16 years since the U.S. won a medal in women’s weightlifting. When the event debuted in 2000 Tara Nott and Cheryl Haworth both won.
Way to go Sarah!!
