The United States of America excels at a lot of Summer Olympics events, but weightlifting typically hasn’t been one of them.

And while the Americans didn’t necessarily flex their muscles in lifting in Rio de Janeiro, they’ll head home with a medal in weightlifting for the first time since 2000.

That’s thanks to Sarah Robles, who won the bronze medal in the +75kg competition on Sunday, Team USA’s first lifting medal in nearly two decades.

That alone is great, but the medal win was made even better by Robles’ awesome celebrations.

As you might expect, Robles was overjoyed on the medal stand, and as she explained on Instagram afterwards, she had the perfect end to the night.

I lifted all the weights tonight! Protein shake and a call to grandma is how I'll finish off my night.
