Golden comeback but Chanu in constant battle with fear of injury

first_imgNew Delhi: Top Indian weightlifter Mirabai Chanu on Tuesday said she lives in fear of injuring herself ahead of next year’s Tokyo Olympics despite recovering from an unspecified back problem, which marred her progress in 2018. After the gold-winning performance in the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games last year, Mirabai had complained of lower back pain. The injury puzzled doctors across the country, who were unable to diagnose the cause, forcing the 24-year-old to miss the Asian Games and the World Championships in the same year.

I have to think twice before every lift, every training session,” Mirabai said. About nine months later, the back pain has subsided allowing Mirabai to make a successful comeback to the arena. She notched up a gold medal a the EGAT Cup in Thailand in her first outing after the setback. The injury has led Mirabai and coach Vijay Sharma to tweak their training regimen.

Was it because of some exercise or was it because of my technique, we still don’t know that,” she said. “She is taking things a bit slowly,” added Sharma, only slightly elaborating on what has changed for the star. Mirabai has enjoyed a good run since her comeback. In the Asian Championships in April, she missed out on a medal by a whisker. The 24-year-old had lifted 199kg (86kg+113kg), her personal best, but lost out to China’s Zhang Rong, owing to a lower clean and jerk result. She then got back to winning ways by notching up the gold at the recently concluded Commonwealth Championships. “My progress since the injury has been good. I have won gold EGAT and then again in Commonwealth Championships. I am satisfied with the performance.”last_img read more

Police warn about doortodoor fraudsters

Calgary Police Service is warning the public about some door-to-door salespeople who claim to be affiliated with the City of Calgary.Police are handling a number of complaints about furnace installation salespeople who are name-dropping the city in order to get into your home and negotiate contracts.Chief Licence Inspector Kent Palliser says he’s concerned the salespeople may be convincing homeowners they need to purchase furnaces, in a rent-to-own contract that could last years.“It’s a bit of a concern of citizens signing contracts that they are not aware of. So it’s best practice to always get three quotes from three different companies so you have a good idea of what exactly a furnace should cost,” Palliser told 660 NEWS.He says people should be asking a salesperson a lot of questions, and anyone who works for the city would have staff identification. People can call 311 anytime to check the licence of the business at their door.
