CWG 2018: Weightlifter Sanjita Chanu wins gold medal
Weightlifter Sanjita Chanu has delivered India its second gold medal of the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast by dominating the women`s 53kg event. Back at the venue where last year she won gold in the Commonwealth Weightlifting Championships, the 24-year-old from Manipur broke the existing CWG record with a lift of 84kg in the snatch category and then lifted 108 in the clean & jerk to finish with a combined effort of 192kg.


The 24-year-old has been one of India`s brightest prospects for India going into the Commonwealth Games this year. In the Glasgow Games in 2014, she won Gold in women`s 48kg category.
