Gold medalist winner of Youth Olympics Jeremy Lalrinnunga broke three world records in a scintillating display of action-packed performance on day three of the Commonwealth Weightlifting Championship on Thursday.
In an astounding performance, the teenager Jeremy, who competed in the 67 kg category, smashed the Youth World, Asian and Commonwealth records within the snatch category with a lift of 136 Kilogram.
It is worth noting that the previous Youth World record, as well as the Asian records, belonged to Jeremy. This was when he had successfully gone on to lift 124 kilograms in the snatch category and 150 kilograms in clean and jerk category at the Asian Championship which was organized in Ningbo, China during the month of April.
However, the Mizoram athlete failed to deliver a clean and jerk lift. Interestingly, the points accumulated in this match will be counted when the final rankings are calculated before Tokyo 2020.
As far as the Indian contingent is concerned, they continued their impressive run in the championship by winning six medals which included four gold medals, a couple of silver medals and a bronze.
Achinta Sheuli lifted 305 kilograms in total to claim the senior and junior men’s gold for 73 kilograms category. Similarly, in the women’s category for 76 kilograms, it was Manpreet Kaur who lifted 207 kilograms in total to win the coveted gold.
