14 year old Indian JEREMY Lalrinnunga created history today in IWF World Youth Championship when he bagged 3 silvers ( Snatch, Clean & Jerk, Total ) in 56 kg category, losing Gold by just 1 kg to his Chinese opponent.
JEREMY Lalrinnunga won silver in Snatch category by lifting 110 kg while the Chinese lifted 111 kg to bag Gold medal, Clean & Jerk had the same story as Jeremy was able to lift 130 kg while Chinese outplayed him by lifting 135 kg.
JEREMY Lalrinnunga’s performance :
Snatch : 110Kg, Clean & Jerk : 130 kg
Total : 240 kg
Another Indian, Zakhuma in same category had a bad outing as he was only able to finish 14th overall with 13th position in Snatch & 15th position in Clean & Jerk.
JEREMY Lalrinnunga is no doubt a bright prospective for India in terms of Youth Olympics & we hope he will change the color of medal next time in Youth Olympics .
