The 24-year-old set a new record in the game by lifting a total of 192 kgs which includes 84 kgs in snatch and 108 kgs in clean and jerk. What's more, she broke six records in six lifts to finish first in the women's 48 kg with a combined effort of 196kg!
Indian weightlifter Sanjita Chanu today claimed her second successive Commonwealth Games gold medal, smashing a Games record in the process, despite nursing a nagging back problem here.
Weightlifters Mirabai Chanu and Gururaja excelled to give India a gold and a silver, respectively. Sanjita booked a spot at the 2018 CWG after taking gold in the women's 53kg with a total lift of 195kg (85kg+110kg) at the Commonwealth Senior (men and women) Weightlifting Championships.
Fellow Manipuri weightlifter Mirabai Chanu had won gold with spectacular record breaking attempts in the women's 48 kg on Thursday. "But I can't express the true measure of my happiness through words", she said.
Just in, Mirabai competed in the 2014 Commonwealth Games as well and settled for Silver, behind her compatriot Sanjita Chanu. Her opponent had to lift 113 kg to win a gold, but she couldn't do so. At the 2016 South Asian Games, she won gold in the 75 kg category.
"Right now my time is 23:31 so in order to qualify for the Games I have to train hard and work hard and drop my personal best". Sanjita continued the trend in the 53 kg category as she effortlessly lifted 81 kg in the first attempt. "So I want to have a good competition once again".
She showed early promise when she won gold medals at the South Asian Junior Games and the 2011 International Youth Championships. Sanjita Chanu's gold medal takes India to the third position in GC 2018 medal standings.
