Lucy Ogechukwu Ejike
When Lucy moved from her hometown of Enugu to a group home for people with impairments, she discovered a world of opportunities available to her, including Para sports. She took particular interest in Para powerlifting—a competitive activity she could participate in from her wheelchair.
Shortly before the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games, Lucy began a rigorous powerlifting training regime. That year—in her first competition—she took home the silver medal for Team Nigeria. Just a few years later, competing for the same weight class at the Athens 2004 Paralympic Games, Lucy broke the Para powerlifting world record twice on her way to winning the gold medal.
In 2016, Lucy made headlines once again at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games when she broke three world records and took home her third Paralympic gold medal.
Quote The advice I have for [young girls who aspire to powerlift] is that they should not be afraid. They can do it. Let them join us. With determination, they can get to their destination. Unquote
