World champion Indian weightlifter Saikhom Mirabai Chanu won a gold medal at the EGAT Cup in Thailand, making an impressive comeback from the lower back injury for which she was out of action for more than half of 2018. The 24-year-old Manipuri lifted 82kg in snatch and 110kg in clean and jerk to finish on top of the podium. Chanu last took part at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast where she won a gold medal.
