India’s weightlifting star Mirabai Chanu wins silver once again in women’s 49kg category at Weightlifting World Championships in Bogota. Mirabai Chanu lifted a total of 200 kg that includes 87kg snatch and 113kg clean and jerk.

Vijay Sharma, the head coach of Indian team, said, “Our aim was to get 200. A 200kg + total weight at every qualifying event will comfortably lead to qualification for the Paris Olympics, so we did not take much pressure in this event. Mirabai winning silver despite not exerting herself gives us confidence for the future,”

Earlier in August, Chanu has said, “My big battles, for now, will be against the Chinese lifters. In December, they shall be the top lifters at the World Championships. At the Asian Games too, where India has never won a medal, they will be the ones to look out for.”

Vinay Sharma sharing the video on Instagram wrote, “Got silver medal in senior world weightlifting championships bogota Colombia after a long gap a five years This medal is prove Hardwork and dedication”
