Rory won the first championship in her sports record in the United States, in the 80-kilogram category, in the National Youth Under-11 Championship.
Rory spends nine hours a week exercising, and her father stresses that she enjoys weightlifting and that her safety is of concern to coaches.
“I’m very focused on getting the job done, so I take everything out of my mind but the weights that I have to lift. I like to be stronger, and this makes me exercise a lot and try constantly,” says Rory.
Rory’s father added that his daughter participated in the American championship due to the absence of a national youth championship in Canada, indicating that she feels proud of breaking a new record.
