Sanjita Chanu on Friday struck the second gold medal for India in the Commonwealth Games 2018 at Gold Coast. The 24-year old athlete lifted a total weight of 192 kg, 84 kg in snatch and 108 kg in clean-and-jerk, as she went on to claim her second consecutive gold medal. But speaking to reporters after her achievement, the Manipuri weightlifter said that she is upset she could not break all the Games records.
“Had I not dropped my last lift, I would have created a Games record. I really wanted to do it. I missed it and I am a bit sad about that. But I guess it’s ok, I don’t know,” she was quoted as saying by news agency PTI after winning the gold in the 53 kg category.
