He continued with his good work, lifting 182kg in his first clean and jerk attempt to jump to the top spot in the standings. His second lift of 187kg saw him accumulate a total weight of 338kg that remained his best as he faltered in the final attempt of 191kg. Luck also went in Rahul’s favour with silver medalist Don Opeloge of Samoa also failing to lift 191kg in his third and final attempt helping Rahul clinch the gold.
