Amna realized her Olympic goal when she was selected to represent the United Arab Emirates at the Asian Championship – Olympic Qualifier. She was part of a 7-member Female UAE National Weightlifting team that competed to earn a quota for the Rio Olympics, April 21 – April 30. She had the second highest score in the team, despite a serious back injury at the time. Only the top 4 scores were counted toward the quota allocation; her points had a key role in earning the UAE a spot at the Rio Olympics in August. Unfortunately, due to her injuries, she was unable to continue the journey.
