Mirabai Chanu's Lift That Landed A 2nd Commonwealth Games Gold For Her
The 27-year-old lifted a total of 201kg to win the gold medal at the ongoing CWG 2022
27-year-old Mirabai Chanu was at the top of her game in the women's 49kg category final on Saturday and she brought home India's first gold medal of the ongoing Commonwealth Games.
Chanu, who was defending her gold medal crown after winning the yelow metal at the 2018 Games in Gold Coast,
was miles ahead of other participants as she picked up 88kg in snatch and 113 kg in clean and jerk.
The clean and jerk section, Chanu's 1st lift was 109kg and after lifting that properly, she sealed the gold medal for herself.
Before going to lift 109kg, Chanu knew if she does it, she will bring home the gold medal.
The Tokyo Olympics silver medallist did not break a sweat in lifting 109kg and hence the gold was India's.
