Commonwealth Weightlifting C'ships: Sanket bags gold, creates new snatch national record

Commonwealth Weightlifting C'ships: Sanket bags gold, creates new snatch national record

Tashkent, Dec 8 (UNI) Indian weightlifter Sanket Mahadev Sargar bagged the gold medal at the ongoing Commonwealth Weightlifting championships, with a best lift of 113kg in snatch and 139kg in clean and jerk.
With his 113kg lift, the Khelo India Youth Games champion created a new snatch national record. This event also serves as a qualification for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
However, the Weightlifting Commonwealth championships and World Championships are taking place simultaneously and the Indian team is participating in both the events.
Sargar marked his debut in the World championships this year, and successfully lifted 113kg in snatch but couldn’t manage to record a valid lift in clean and jerk.
Also, the Tokyo Olympic silver medallist in women’s 49kg category Mirabai Chanu was initially part of the Indian team but decided to withdrew from both the events, as the former world champion wanted to devote more time to mastering a new snatch technique ahead of the Asian Games 2022.
The 2020 Asian championship gold medallist Jhili Dalabehera, who earlier competed in 45kg weight category, will compete in 49kg on Wednesday.
Men's team: Jeremy Lalrinnunga (67kg), Sanket Sargar (55 kg), Guru Raja (61 kg), Achinta Sheuli (73 kg), Ajay Singh (81 kg), Vikas Thakur (96 kg), Jagdish Vishwakarma (96 kg), Lovepreet Singh (109 kg) and Gurdeep Singh (+109 kg).
Women's team: Jhili Dalabehera (49 kg), S. Bindyarani Devi (55 kg), Popy Hazarika (59 kg), Komal Khan (64 kg), Harjinder Kaur (71 kg), Lalchhanhimi (71 kg), Punam Yadav (76 kg), R. Arockiya Alish (76 kg), Anuradha Pavunraj (87 kg),Purnima Pandey (+87 kg).
