Mirabai lifted 80 kg with a snatch in her first snatch and in her second and third attempt she lifted 84 kg and 86 kg with a snatch which won her the gold.

Indian boxer Mary Kom congratulated Mirabai by posting tweet,

“Congratulations #Mirabai Chanu for #Gold #CWG2018 #GOLD Coast # Proud Moment”

Chanu won India the silver medal in weightlifting in previous Common Wealth Games of 2014. He was considered as the sure fire prospect to win the medal this year too. Her previous weigh lift total was of 194 kg but instead she bested her own self with a lift of 196 kg.

None of the other competitors of Mirabai were able to lift even past 180 as they were all less than 180 kg. Her closest rival was a Canadian weight lifter Amanda Barddock who made a personal best lift of 173 kg.

Mirabai Chanu began weightlifting back in 2007 and has won many medals in her career in national competitions.
