Sudhir finishes sixth in 77kg weightlifting

Guangzhou: India saw another dull day in weightlifting as Sudhir Chitradurga finished sixth in the men's 77kg event at the 16th Asian Games here on Tuesday.

Sudhir would have at least finished fourth had he repeated his 297kg effort which fetched him a bronze medal in the Commonwealth Games, but he could only lift 295kg (135+160) to finish sixth.

Sudhir, who was placed in Group B of the men's 77kg event, gained the second spot in his group, after Thailand's Ekkachai Yeeram.

Yeeram bettered the 31-year-old Indian by just one point with a combined lift of 296kg (165+131) to top his group to finish an overall fifth.

In fact, the fouth placed Jasurbek Jumayev of Turkmenistan acquired similar points as Yeeman (who lost out on greater body mass), thus was also only one point ahead of Sudhir.

North Korean Pang Kum Chol claimed a surprise gold with a total lift of 348kg (156+192), while Kazakhstan duo Kirill Pavlov (325kg, 147+178) and Dauren Shauyeteyev (310kg, 140+170) claimed silver and bronze respectively. — PTI
