Record-shattering Mirabai Chanu bags India's first gold at Birmingham Commonwealth Games

BIRMINGHAM On Saturday, Mirabai was Mirabai’s biggest competition.

It must have felt slightly strange for Mirabai Chanu, bossing the toning area with nothing to challenge her. Such a different script from the events of Tokyo Olympics last time, when the Chinese Hou Zhihu was lifting weights as if they were shopping bags, pushing our fine Manipur girl to come up with her own special in an grand 49- kg lift- off. also it had got her a atrocious tableware, setting the stage for a memorable Indian Olympic order benediction.

It was July 24, 2021 also; it's July 30 now. moment.

In Birmingham, you could say, she was on her own. Lifting a whopping 29 kg further than the alternate- placed Marie Hanitra Ranaivosoa of Mauritius.

Mirabai lifted a aggregate of 201 kg – 88 kg by catch and 113 kg by clean and haul – to produce a new CWG record as well as her own particular stylish.

There was a banner from the daises that made Hindi- following people present at the National Exhibition Centre in Solihull burst into horselaugh. “ Mira tum ho India ka hira( Mira you're India’s diamond). ” Truly she's a diamond, and for sure she's India’s lucky charm, the country’s amulet kick- starting effects with a gold order- winning performance at the 2022 Commonwealth Games on Saturday.

Indeed before the Games, it was more or less a forthcoming conclusion who was winning the gold order in women’s 49 kg order. Mirabai was long hauls ahead of the competition. Before the CWG, she was a whopping 25 kg better than the alternate-stylish in the competition. As the Indian tricolor went up amid the strains of the public hymn that filled the National Exhibition Centre, giving goose bumps to the Indians present there, Mirabai had gone 29 kg better than the tableware quarterfinalist.

At the order form, Mirabai was smiling observance to observance. It was relatively different from a time back when we did n’t get the occasion to see her smile. The mask was proving to be a mood spoiler. There was no mask at Birmingham and we got to see that glowing smile of hers.

During the lifts too, she went about her job with a smile on her face. She knew she was her own competition.

In the three lifts of catch, she tried 84 kg and pulled it off with ease. The stylish lift for tableware quarterfinalist Marie Hanitra Ranaivosoa of Mauritius was 76 kg, which she managed in her third.

Mirabai went for 88 kg in her alternate lift. It wasn't only about trying to break her own CWG record in the catch( she had lifted 86 kg at 2018 Gold Coast), but also set a new particular stylish( before it was 87 kg).

She paraded to the centre and it was a piece of cutlet. All three judges ruled in the affirmative.

In the third catch lift, she tried 90 kg. It was her target before leaving for Birmingham. But, sorely it wasn't to be this time.

The clean and haul followed a analogous pattern. She lifted 109 kg and 113 kg in her first two attempts, but could n’t complete the 115 kg lift in her third. While her particular stylish in clean and haul is 119 kg, which is the world record, Mirabai had said before the Games that she was looking to lift 120 kg at the CWG.
