Gurdeep Singh rounded off India’s weightlifting marketing campaign with a bronze medal within the +109kg occasion on the Commonwealth Video games right here on Wednesday. The-26-year-old debutant had a finest effort of 390kg (167kg+223kg) for a podium end. The gold went to Paksitan’s Muhammad Nooh Butt for his Video games record-breaking elevate of 405kg (173kg+232kg). New Zealand’s David Andrew Liti clinched the silver for his effort of 394kg (170kg+224kg).
Singh wasn’t off to one of the best of begins as he fluffed his first snatch try of 167kg. He managed to elevate the burden in his second strive. Nonetheless, he failed in his third try of 173kg. Coming into the clear and jerk within the joint third spot, Singh began with a 207kg elevate.
There was some nervous moments for the Indian as he failed his second clear and jerk try of 215kg.
However Singh elevated the barbell by eight kilograms and lifted it efficiently to register 223kg.
With the bronze from Singh, India ended its weightlifting marketing campaign with 10 medals — three gold, three silver and 4 bronze.
