Weightlifter Eleni Konstantinidi won two gold medals for Greece on Friday at the European Championships taking place in Batumi, Georgia.

The Greek athlete won a top spot with her clean and jerk in the 81 kilos category.

It was the first time in 16 years that a Greek athlete, male or female, won a gold medal at the European championships.

After her win, 24-year-old Konstantinidi said that she felt confident about winning a medal but the “feeling of listening to the National Anthem on the rostrum cannot be described.”
