"2002 world weightlifting champion and two-time Olympic medalist Agata Wrobel made her return to weightlifting competition on Saturday (March 6) in the Polish League competition in Warsaw.  It was her first contest since the 2006 World [Weightlifting] Championships.  Agata decided to return to weightlifting a year ago, but her return to competition was delayed due to operations on both her wrist and then her hip during 2009,” Anderson said.
 
“Agata totalled 200 kg (90-kg snatch, 110-kg clean and jerk) despite only resuming full training in January.  She is hoping to continue her progress as part of the Polish team at the European Championships in Minsk next month,” said Anderson.
