Yazmin Zammit Stevens was not only competing at the first ever (IWF) International Weightlifting Federation Street Competition last Saturday in Swizerland, but was named an official Athlete Ambassador for the world of weightlifting. Olympic Gold Medalist Meso Hassona (Qatar), World Revord Holder Lesman Perez (Colombia) and Malta’s  very own Yazmin Zammit Stevens were the three athlete ambassadors chosen by the IWF to be a part of the first ever IWF street competition. The competition was one of the initiatives being taken by the IWF to bring the sport closer to its audiences in an effort to better its image in the coming years. This competition saw a difference in the usual weightlifting competitions which included the event being a mixed team event. The Ambassador team made up of Yazmin and Meso twin the overall title followed by team Italy and Germany.
