CWG 2022: Achinta Sheuli wins third gold medal for India

Achinta Sheuli added to India’s remarkable show in weightlifting at the Commonwealth Games 2022 by winning a gold medal – the country’s third – in the men’s 73kg final. Achinta lifted a highest of 143kg in snatch – which is a Games record – and 170 in Clean & Jerk series, combining for an impressive and record-scripting 313 kg to give India’s sixth medal at the CWG 2022. Achinta was a strong contender for bossing the event, and he lived up to those expectations joining Jeremy Lalrinnunga and Mirabai Chanu as India’s three gold medalists so far at the CWG 2022.
