Powered by Firework Saikhom Mirabai Chanu has clinched yet another gold medal at the Qatar International Cup, after the Commonwealth Games last year. The 24-year-old weightlifter is not ready to back down yet as she has her eyes on the Tokyo Olympics next year. The Qatar Internation Cup was held this Friday in Doha, and it is the first time that an Indian has managed to win a gold at the event. It is a proud moment for the nation as well as Mirabai Chanu as she is being showered with congratulations and love on Twitter.Advertisement The 24-year-old Chanu hails from Manipur and has been participating in the 48kg category women since 2014.

While her parents expected her brother to carry more firewood, they would be surprised by how much weight she could lift at the tender of age of 12.Advertisement The nation took notice when she managed to bring back home a gold medal from the prestigious event–Commonwealth Games. Young Chanu won over the judges at the Qatar International Cup after lifting a combined weight of 194kg. She was able to lift 83kg in snatch and 111kg in clean and jerk in one go. This win will help her make the Tokyo 2020 cut. This is the second time she is trying for the Olympics, her previous attempt had failed. While she did qualify for the 2016 Olympics that was held in Rio, she came back home empty-handed because she could not lift any of the weights.Her failure made her work harder as the next year, she won gold at the 2017 World Weightlifting Championships, followed by another gold at the Commonwealth Games 2018. Next, she won a bronze medal at the 2019 Asian Weightlifting Championships. At the 2019 World Weightlifting Championships, she ended up breaking records but did not win medals.Advertisement Although, her performance is greatly appreciated, her performance at the event cannot top her personal record which is 201kg.

‘It’s a surprise’: Klopp wowed by Liverpool’s hot start

first_img0Shares0000Mohamed Salah was on target in Liverpool’s win over Southampton © AFP / Paul ELLISLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Sep 22 – Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool’s flying start has surprised him as they won their sixth successive Premier League game to return to the top of the table.The comfortable 3-0 victory over Southampton at Anfield was wrapped up by half-time on Saturday courtesy of an own goal from Wesley Hoedt, Joel Matip’s header and Mohamed Salah’s simple finish. The victory marked Liverpool’s best start to a season since they won eight league games in a row in 1990-91.Klopp’s red-hot men have now won seven successive matches in all competitions this term.Southampton manager Mark Hughes, now without a league win in 12 visits to Anfield with six different teams, admitted the second half was simply “damage limitation” for the Saints.And Klopp was happy to welcome another unexpected milestone on his team’s journey.“I lost seven games in a row once, that felt different! But then we won game number eight 5-0, very cool,” he said.“It’s a surprise, but all the performances we showed so far were good enough to win the games.“Different challenges, different styles of opponent, the boys were there, really in the situation and in the game.”Klopp was also able to offer good news on the only possible downsides on the day for Liverpool, the half time removal of Xherdan Shaqiri and the second half substitution of Virgil van Dijk, who left the pitch clutching his ribs.Klopp revealed Shaqiri’s early substitution in his first Liverpool start was purely tactical despite his involvement in the build up to the first goal – his shot hit Shane Long before going in off Hoedt – and his superb 25 yard free-kick against the bar which led to Salah’s tap-in for the third.“I said to Shaq at half time that I’d never taken a player off at half time after such an influential half,” Klopp said.“He was not injured, but I wanted to control the game, go back to our normal formation, and that helped us.”The Swiss international understood the decision, according to his manager.“He’s a fantastic boy so there was no problem. I explained it to him, usually I don’t explain substitutions but I thought today it made a bit of sense,” Klopp added.“It’s just good to have him. You saw the free kick, it was outstanding. What a ball!”– Cutting edge –Van Dijk, said Klopp, aggravated bruised ribs which he carried into the PSG game in midweek.“He had already before the PSG game kind of a bruised rib, which is very uncomfortable, and today he got another hit there,” he said.“It’s not cool, but should not be too serious.“He said he couldn’t shout any more, so that’s obviously 60 per cent less of his level!”Klopp’s 600th competitive game as a manager saw Liverpool extend an impressive home league record, unbeaten now in 18 games and 17 months at Anfield.No opposing player has even scored here in the league since February, with Liverpool scoring 23 in the same period.While the Saints enjoyed some promising moments they could not find the cutting edge to worry their opponents.The second half was rather a non-event with Salah’s disallowed finish after James Milner’s shot was cleared off the line the closest Liverpool came to adding gloss to the scoreline.Hughes thought 3-0 was harsh on his side but added: “We faced a quality side today. We’re not the first and won’t be the last not to cope with their attacking threat.“We didn’t really give ourselves a chance in the opening period, we were too easy to create chances against though we were unfortunate with the opening goal.”The victory ended a positive week for Liverpool with a third win after a statement victory against top four rivals Spurs at Wembley last weekend and the breathless, late victory against Paris St Germain in the Champions League.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Assam acts over ‘security lapse’ during CJI visit

first_imgThe Assam government on Saturday suspended two officers for a “security lapse” during Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi’s visit to the Kamakhya temple here on October 17.The two officers are Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Bhanwar Lal Meena and Additional Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup (Metro), Prasanta Pratim Kathkotiya.An order signed by Home Secretary Deepak Mazumdar said lapse in security arrangements had caused inconvenience to Chief Justice Gogoi. The decision to suspend Mr. Meena was taken after Governor Jagdish Mukhi took a serious note of the lapse.The order pointed out that the itinerary of the CJI had been intimated to the Assam government department concerned on October 11.The government issued another order suspending Mr. Kathkotiya. “Action was taken against him for lack of coordination during the CJI’s visit,” Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup (Metro), Virendra Mittal said.A senior police officer said the “security lapse” had to do more with a “situation” arising out of “a rush of VIP movements” at Kamakhya on that day. The CJI’s visit had almost coincided with that of Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah.According to news portal insidene.com and a couple of vernacular dailies, Chief Justice Gogoi was made to wait for at least 30 minutes as Mr. Shah had visited the temple at the same time along with Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and other senior BJP leaders.“The temple that day was open for about 180 minutes because of Durga Puja. Everyone, including devotees, had to be accommodated during that period and the situation got complicated because of lack of coordination among the officials,” a temple priest was quoted as saying. “The suspension was a face-saving measure by the BJP government, which gave more importance to the security of Amit Shah than the Chief Justice of India,” Debabrata Saikia, CLP leader said on Sunday.last_img read more
