Former weightlifter, Mexican Damaris Aguirre, announced in social media that she will be given the bronze medal for her participation in the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics.

Even if the athlete didn't stand on the podium at that time, the disqualification of two of her competitors slotted her in the third place.

“It has finally arrived,” wrote the Mexican Olympics Committee, referencing the athlete who participated in the Women's 75 kg, “Beijing, full satisfaction.”

Although the confirmation of the National Olympics Committee is still pending, she is the second female weightlifter to be awarded her medal after the games, as is the case of Luz Acosta, who is also expecting to receive her bronze medal for the London 2012 Summer Olympics.
