Historic success for Albanian weightlifting, Ertjan Kofsha, triple European champion, brings 3 gold medals to Albania

Historic success for Albanian weightlifting, Ertjan Kofsha, triple European

Albania proves itself once again at the international level as a great force in weightlifting, with high-level European and world athletes. Last night it was the turn of another Albanian sportsman to write a page of success at the international level, to cover Albania with gold. Ertjan Kofsha, a weightlifter from Shtërmen, competed last night in the A battery of his weight (up to 89 kg) and provided Albania with 3 gold medals, completely dominating the European barbell scene for 17-year-olds. The Albanian weightlifter dominated the breakaway style and closed it with a 140 kg lift, taking first place. A very high result for him, if you consider that Qerimaj and Calja who compete in the adult category are somewhere around 150 kg in this style. So Kofsha ran a perfect race in this style, deserving the gold medal, with a surprising result.

Pushing and bicycling proves it again as number 1

In the push style, the athlete's morale was high, as he had previously secured the gold medal in the breakaway. This made him clearly superior in psychological terms, making him win this style with 168 kg, another gold medal for Albania. Of course, Kofsha is an athlete with high technical qualities and very strong physically. In the doubles, with 308 kg, he deserved the first place and provided Albania with the third gold medal in this weight. The triple European champion and athlete Ertjan Kofsha is thus a phenomenon of Albanian weightlifting, an athlete of perspective and who will follow the great names of our barbell such as Suli, Qerimaj and Calja. Undoubtedly, coach Leonard Toska, already proven as a "talent factory" in weightlifting, has a special merit in this success. as it has produced quality athletes who prove themselves on the international stage. This is only the first success of the boy at the international level, a three-time European champion for his age, but there will be other major activities ahead that will prove him as a great talent. With this progress, the athlete has a high probability of securing qualification for the 2024 Paris Olympics, which would be great for him and his coach. We remind you that in training the athlete has lifted even more, so the chances that he will be in the big competitions of the adult category in the future are great and he will prove himself as an athlete with high technique and great potential as a record holder . Work and talent will bring him to the highest podiums of the biggest world weightlifting competitions.

Carja, another athlete of the future

A few days ago, another athlete from our national team left her mark at the European Youth and U-15 Championships in Poland. It is about the weightlifter Enkileda Carja, who came third in her weight class (55 kg), lifting 69 kg in the breakaway, 83 in the push and 152 kg in the double event, taking bronze medals in all three styles, but her age small is quite promising. She is only 14 years old but a great future of Albanian weightlifting.
