Eileen Cikamatana (weightlifting) claimed gold for Fiji at the Gold Coast 2018 Games, she is now aiming to create a slice of history by becoming the first woman to win individual gold medals for two different countries at the Commonwealth Games. Cikamatana, who is the youngest member of the weightlifting team in Birmingham, also claimed bronze (2016) and silver (2017) at the world junior championships for her homeland before a dispute with the governing body saw her switch allegiances to Australia. She claimed gold at World Cup events in 2019 and 2020 for her new nation, breaking two junior world records in 2019 in China, but was still ineligible to represent Australia at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Cikamatana is coached by Paul Coffa at the Oceania Weightlifting Institute in Noumea, although she makes frequent trips to Sydney. She set her PB in clean & jerk (155kg) in August 2019 and her snatch PB (120kg) and total (272kg) in March 2021, an effort that would have won her the world title.
