Mirabai chanu become 48kg world championship after a super lift of 194kg .

Rio Olympian Mirabai lifted 85kg in snatch and 109 kg in clean & jerk for an overall total of 194kg to finish on top of the podium in women’s 48kg weight division .She broke National record in Clean and jerk and total with a lift of 109 kg, and 194Kg bettering her own record .

Sukcharoen took the silver with a total of 193 kg while Colombia’s Ana Iris Segura bagged the bronze with a total lift of 182 kg.

Mirabai Chanu becomes only the second Indian (Karnam Malleswari was first) to win gold at world weightlifting championships, and joins Nameirakpam Devi Kunjarani (IND) as only world championships medalist from India in a women’s 48kg event. Devi Kunjarani took silver in Clean & Jerk in 1999.

Chanu earlier looked in trouble when she failed to lift 85 kg in her second snatch attempt but made no mistake in the third to stay in the second spot. The clean and jerk competition was neck to neck . Chanu first lifted 103 kg, Thai again came into lead.Chanu added 4 more to her first lift and successfully attempted 107kg .Thai again came on top with 107 kg

Thai Lifter was leading with just 1 kg , both Chanu and Thunya Sukcharoen registered 109 Kg .Chanu Didn’tdisappoint and successfully liftwd 109Kg which is her Personal best and National Record too.Now it was on Thunya Sukcharoen Scholder , but she could not handle the pressure and has an unsuccessful attempt at 109 , Hence Chanu Ended up With clean and jerk Gold and also became 48kg world champion . Thunya Sukcharoen is current Asian CHampion and Junior 48kg World Champion .

Sanjita Chanu could not deliver her best performance and end with 177Kg in Women 53kg Group B . which was Below par performance for her . She recently won gold at Commonwealth Senior Weightlifting Championships with 195kg . India have 8 Weightlifter qualified , only Mirabai was in Group A (among Leader) . lets hope for Some Good Performance from other as well.
