    Chanu finishes 4th

    A total weight of 191kg for the India’s Mirabai Chanu. She fell a few kilos short in both disciplines. An 86kg lift in snatch could have put her in position to challenge with her strong Clean & Jerk. But it was not to be due to a thigh injury. Even in Clean & Jerk, she was restricted to 108kg, failing twice on 117kg.

    An injury to Mirabai Chanu

    Sportstar’s correspondant from the venue, “She has a thigh injury. Aggravated an existing issue. Physio says she will be fine but not 100%.”

  • September 30, 2023 13:21
    Mirabai Chanu 6th after snatch round

    The Indian is outside the medal places for now. A disappointing result so far for her. 86kg is a weight that is well within her reach but it was not to be today.

    She made a hobbling walk back to the back room too after the third lift. Hope that is nothing serious.

    She now has three clean & jerk lifts to cut the gap and make an attempt at the bronze medal. The gold and silver look a bit too far for her.

  • September 30, 2023 13:06
