Maltese Olympian and resident weightlifting champion Yazmin Zammit Stevens has made it onto the front page of British fitness apparel brand Gymshark’s website… and she’s over the moon.

With an accumulated 8 million followers on Instagram and Facebook and a valuation of over €1 billion, being featured on the brand’s home page is quite an impressive feature for Malta’s champion.

That being said, Zammit Stevens boasts quite an impressive following of her own, telling her 208,000 Instagram followers that she was freaking out at the idea of being on the website’s front page.

The weightlifter first announced her partnership with Gymshark back in October 2021, stating that representing such a big global brand is something the never thought would become a reality.

Kudos Yaz!
