However, Mirabai Chanu also participated in the National Games in October despite being injured. Vijay Sharma said, ‘We can’t do much (about the injury) because we didn’t want to miss the World Championship. Now we will focus on his wrist as we have a lot of time before the next tournament.

Mirabai Chanu, competing in her first international tournament after winning the Commonwealth Games gold, had a disappointing snatch season. Mirabai started with a lift of 84 kg, but her second attempt of 87 kg was deemed unsuccessful. Mirabai Chanu, as expected, did not go for the much-anticipated 90 kg lift.

In her final attempt, the 28-year-old wobbled a bit but managed to lift the 87kg barbell. This is one kilogram less than his personal best in this category. During this Mirabai’s wrist was bandaged.

After the snatch session, Mirabai Chanu set the highest clean and jerk entry weight, but her first attempt of 111kg was not considered a lift as her left elbow wobbled slightly. The Indian camp challenged the verdict but the judge upheld it. However, this was followed by world record holder Mirabai Chanu lifting 111 kg and 113 kg in her last two attempts respectively and won silver in overall and clean and jerk.
