For some years now, the relevance of women in sport has been on the rise. The news finally speaks of those women athletes who meet goals and break records. 2017 has left us athletes who have exceeded their goal and who have left us with their mouths open. All of them are examples of overcoming and admiring, so we leave you with a short summary of the highlights of this year in women’s sport.
The world surrendered at the feet of Lidia Valentín when she proclaimed herself triple weightlifting world champion. It is the first time that a Spanish woman has won the gold medal in an absolute world championship, both in the women’s and men’s categories. To make matters worse, Lidia has achieved three times in the categories of snatch, two times and Olympic total.
Despite the fact that weightlifting has always been considered a sport for men, with the lesson of effort that Lydia gives, it increasingly brings this discipline closer to the female sector. We are facing a woman who won the world championship by lifting a total of 258 kilos. Now he has his sights set on the 2020 Olympic Games and we are looking forward to seeing it in action.
What has been getting Carolina since 2014 is amazing. Although this year has not been entirely favorable for the athlete, we believe it is worthy to include it in the best female athletes this year. Carolina was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Badminton World Cup, recently she has suffered a hip injury that has temporarily distanced her from training; but with all that, right now he is playing the Badminton Premier League and has given the first victory to his team.
The 24-year-old from Huelva is positioned in the top 10 of the World Badminton Federation and this year she has won the gold in the European Badminton Championship held in Denmark.
We closed the top 3 of women athletes with one of the largest and most historic in Spain. On July 27, 2017, Mireia Belmonte managed to take over world gold. Being an Olympic champion and four times European champion, what Mireia lacked was proclaiming herself the universal champion of the 200 butterfly.
Undoubtedly, the Budapest World Cup this year will remember him forever. He did not find much difficulty in the semifinals and days before getting the gold in 200 butterfly, he took the silver in the 1500 free. As if that were not enough, she also achieved silver in 400 styles, something that made the World Cup totally round for her. I would say that he never tires of breaking records, a few days after finishing the World Cup he broke the world record of 4,000 short pool styles.
