Men lifters in particular have been pretty impressive so far as each one of them has bagged a medal in their respective event. After Sanket Sargar (55kg), Gururaja Poojary (61kg), and Jeremy Lalrinnunga (67kg); Achinta Sheuli (73kg) bagged a medal to make it four in four for India in Men’s weightlifting.

The 20-year-old won the gold medal in the Men’s 73kg final with a massive lift of 313kg (143kg+170kg). Sheuli took an early lead in the Snatch round as he lifted a massive 137kg in his first attempt itself. He then came back to successfully lift 140kg in his second attempt. But the best lift came in the third attempt when the Indian lifted a whopping 143kg with sheer ease to finish at the top of the leaderboard. He also created a Games Record with his final lift.
