Updates from Day 2 of the 2022 Commonwealth Games: Lifter Mirabai Chanu won India’s first gold medal in Birmingham

Mirabai Chanu won the 49 kg competition with a CWG record total lift of 201 kg. She earned Team India’s first gold medal. Sanket Sagar, an Indian weightlifter, had started India’s medal count with a silver in the 55kg division. India’s second medal of the CWG 2022 came in Gururaja Poojary’s bronze medal in the men’s 61kg weightlifting event.

She entered the competition as the clear favourite. Chanu proved her mettle by breaking the Games record with a total lift of 201 kg.

Mirabai Chanu earned India’s first gold medal of the 2022 Commonwealth Games after easily winning the women’s 49kg weightlifting final on Saturday in Birmingham, much like she did in Gold Coast 2018.

The fact that Chanu outweighed Mauritius’ Marie Ranaivosoa, who won the silver medal, by a whopping 29 kg gives an idea of just how dominant her performance was.

Mirabai said in her Twitter account

"Lifting 201kg never felt easy but thanks to the love and wishes of billions back home, every challenge is just an attempt away. "

Chanu’s turn took a while to come

Chanu’s turn took a while to come, but you could tell she was the next one when the support crew increased the weight on the barbells. Chanu lifted 84 kg in his first effort, outperforming the next-best lifter by 8 kg.

Chanu quickly reached her personal best and established a CWG record in her subsequent snatch attempt. She added 4 more kilogrammes and effortlessly lifted 88 kilogrammes. One of the pre-CWG rumours about Chanu was whether or not she would be able to lift 90 kg.

That minor error did not significantly impact the outcome of the competition. She set the record and won India’s first gold medal at this edition of the CWG by lifting 109 kg in just her first attempt of the clean and jerk. She added 4 kg to her second effort, wrapped her hands tightly around the barbell, and lifted an incredible 113 kg. Chanu’s final effort was at 115 kg, and even though she struggled to land it successfully, it made little difference.

Chanu’s accomplishments at the Olympics last year were her first significant victories. Like many of her other well-known Olympic medalists, the weightlifter, 27, has become rather reticent since her defeat in Tokyo.
