NINGBO (CHINA), April 21: Former world champion Mirabai Chanu produced her personal best but missed out on podium by a whisker, while Youth Olympics gold medallist Jeremy Lalrinnunga went on a record-smashing spree at the Asian Weightlifting Championship here on Sunday.

The 24-year-old Mirabai lifted 86kg in snatch and a personal best of 113kg in clean and jerk for a total of 199kg in the women�s 49kg event to finish on fourth position. Her earlier personal best total in 49kg was 192kg in the EGAT Cup in Thailand in February.

In a remarkable performance, 16-year-old Jeremy secured second place in Group B of the 67Kg men�s event. During his record-smashing spree, he claimed three world marks.

Earlier in the day, Jhili Dalabehera opened India�s medal account, claiming a silver medal in the women�s 45kg category. However, 45kg is not a Olympic weight category.

The points gathered from this event will come in handy when the final rankings for 2020 Tokyo Olympics are made next year. � PTI
