Prez, Modi and Rathore laud Mirabai for gold feat at World Wrestling C'ship

New Delhi, Nov 30 (UNI) President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday lauded women weightlifter Mirabai Chanu for clinching gold medal in the 48kg category after beating Thailand's Thunya Sukcharoen at the World Weightlifting Championship at Anaheim, US after a gap of 22 years.

"India is proud of Mirabai Chanu, who has won a gold at the World Weightlifting Championship. Congratulations and best wishes for her future endeavours," Mr Modi wrote on his twitter handle.

She is the second Indian after Karnam Malleswari to win gold who had won the championship in 1995.

Chanu made three clear clean and jerk lifts for a total of 194kg to deny Sukcharoen, who failed with her last attempt, by one kilogram.

“Congratulations Mirabai Chanu for winning a gold medal in the World Weightlifting Championship. India is so proud of you. And congratulationsManipur for giving the country such a wonderful series of champion sportswomen!” President's office tweeted.

Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore also wrote on his twitter handle, “Saikhom Mirabai Chanu wins #Gold in 2017 IWF Senior Men & Women #weightlifting championships in Anaheim, US. In the 48 kg weight category, her total lift was 194 kg. That’s 4 times her bodyweight. In sports, and in life, ‘Will’ is everything. Never, EVER give up.”
