Siddhanta Gogoi emerged as a standout among India’s young weightlifters in the Asian Youth and Junior Weightlifting Championships. The 19-year-old lifter won the men’s 61kg junior title, giving India its first gold medal in the event.

Gogoi’s superb performance demonstrated his developing skill. Siddhanta Gogoi lifted a total of 265kg (116kg in Snatch and 149kg in Clean & Jerk) after defeating senior lifter Shubham Todkar at the Commonwealth Championships.

At the Asian Youth and Junior Weightlifting Championships, India’s Gyaneshwari Yadav and Koyel Bar won silver medals in the women’s 49 kg class.

Koyel Bar excelled in the juvenile division, lifting 69kg in snatch and 86kg in clean and jerk for a total of 155kg. Koyel’s silver medal, while falling just short of the gold, was a monument to her devotion and hard effort.

Gyaneshwari hoisted 175kg in total (78kg+97kg). Two missed efforts in the snatch and clean and jerk sections kept Chhattisgarh from duplicating her gold-winning performance at the Commonwealth Senior Championships earlier this month. Joyshna Sabar of India took bronze in the 40kg women’s youth category.

Jhodie Peralta of the Philippines took first place in the juvenile category, lifting an amazing 160kg. Phanida Denduang of Thailand won bronze with a total of 151kg (67kg in snatch and 84kg in clean and jerk).
