News Tech: Commonwealth Games gold medallist lifters Jeremy Lalrinnunga and Achinta Sheuli will clash for the lone 73kg spot in the Paris Olympics as the former’s 67kg doesn’t feature in the 2024 Games.

However, India already has representation in the weight division in Sheuli, who is the national record holder and reigning CWG champion in the 73kg division.

With the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) scrapping 67kg from the Paris Games, Jeremy, who won the gold in the category at the CWG, will bulk up to compete in the 73kg weight class.

The two will now go head to head in a bid to seal qualification for the 2024 Olympics as only one lifter per country is allowed in a weight class.

However, the Mizoram lifter conceded that he has struggled to gain weight in the last two years.

”My body weight has not been increasing. I am trying to increase it since 2019 to get till 70kg. My diet plan and supplements will change. Training will also be a bit different. The percentage will change.” ”Asian Games and World Championship have 67kg but the aim is Paris Olympics,” he added. Weighing in on the situation, head coach Vijay Sharma said the two lifters will motivate each other to do better. ”It is good that Jeremy and Achinta will be in the same weight category. There should be healthy competition between lifters as otherwise they might take things easy,” Sharma said. ”They both have to work really hard and improve to qualify. Now qualification will be tough as there are only five categories and everyone will be trying to get into these five classes,” he added.
