In Clean & Jerk, Achinta lifted 166 kg on his first try, which put him in the gold medal position right away. On his second try, he failed to lift 170 kg, which gave Malaysia’s Erry Hidayat the chance to make a comeback. But when the second guy messed up on his second and final try to lift 176 kg and Achinta nailed the 170 kg lift on his last shot, India was guaranteed a third gold with a solid performance.

Achinta started weightlifting in 2011 after his brother, who had also been a weightlifter, showed him how to do it. It took him 10 years to make it to the top, though. Achinta took home a silver medal at the 2021 World Junior Championships. A few months later, she won a gold medal at the Commonwealth Championships in Tashkent.
