Former world champion Mirabai Chanu made a grand return to the weightlifting arena as she set a new world record in clean and jerk while also bettering her own national record to win a bronze at the Asian Championship. This means that Chanu also confirmed her Tokyo Olympic berth as she has now competed in the six mandatory qualifying events. The 26-year-old lifted 86kg in snatch and a world record of 119kg in clean and jerk for a total weight of 205 kg.
