Roberts went through immense hardships from a young age and even in university, but that made her more determined to prove herself. From 2016 onwards, Roberts continued to dominate the field of strong women and grip competitions and started a winning streak with the 2017 World Grip Championship. However, she again had to channel her suffering into success when her husband passed away due to heart failure.

With her recent win, she not only overcame her mental turmoil due to the increased hardships of life but also etched her name permanently in the field of weightlifting. She dedicated her win to her father. Her Instagram caption read, “Trophy safely delivered to Dad, I showed him all the videos from the competition, and he was so proud. I just have no words. It meant SO much to me to have done this for him. My Dad is such a fighter.”
