Mirabai Chanu sets new records at the Commonwealth Games
India opened this year’s medal account at the prestigious Commonwealth Games on Saturday, 30th August, 2022. Of all Indian athletes, Mirabai Chanu, was the best performer. It isn’t the first time that Saikhom Mirabai Chanu, the recipient of Padmashree by the Indian Government, has left everyone spellbound. But, this time she broke all records and set a new level at the Common Wealth Games in Birmingham, in the Women’s 49 kg weightlifting category match. While her personal best was 88 kg, the Indian weightlifter completed a total lift of 201 kg (88 kg and 113 kg).
From Indian celebrities to the country’s youth, thousands of people took to social media to congratulate Chanu after she won the gold medal. With this, the champion got her third CWG medal. Prior to this, she had won a Silver medal in the Glasgow edition and a Gold medal in the Gold Coast edition of CWC.

Every Indian is delighted that she’s won a Gold and set a new Commonwealth record at the Birmingham Games. Her success inspires several Indians, especially budding athletes.”
