The Commonwealth Games 2022 are on in Birmingham and the Indian contingent is doing great at the sporting event. The female athletes from India are bagging medals in various sports, making us feel very proud of them. It was the fourth day of the Commonwealth Games 2022 on Monday and India has bagged yet another medal, bringing us glory yet again! This time India’s Harjinder Kaur won the bronze medal in the weightlifting category.

India Bags Medal In Weightlifting At CWG

Harjinder Kaur competed in the 71 kg weight category. As per reports, she lifted a total of 212 kg. She lifted 93 kg in the snatch motion and 119 kgs in the clean and jerk motion. Kaur could not lift the 90 kg snatch the first time but she easily managed to achieve the feat in her second attempt which also made it her personal best!
