KUCHING, April 13: For the first time ever, Sarawak’s very own strongwoman Husnul Khatimah Wajidi will attempt to deadlift a car.
The event will take place this Sunday (April 15) at Sarawak Plaza here.
The event is open to the public and will begin at 2pm. Sports fans are encouraged to come and support Husnul Khatimah in this extraordinary attempt.
The event is an effort to create awareness for the sport and raise funds for Husnul Khatimah to compete in the Static Monster World Championships in Gold Coast, Australia on May 20.
Husnul Khatimah, 39, qualified for the Championships last October where only the top ten athletes from all over the world are selected from each bodyweight category.
“It is an opportunity for me to get ranked among the top athletes worldwide which has always been my dream and I am truly grateful that Sarawak Plaza has offered to host this crowdfunding event,” said Husnul Khatimah.
Possessing a Level 1 Certificate in Cross Fit, she also competes in other fitness events and powerlifting but has recently focused more on the strongwoman discipline.
The single mother started her fitness journey at CrossFit Kuching in 2013, and is the only strongwoman athlete to have qualified for the competition from Malaysia. — DayakDaily
