Khelo India University Games: Ann Mariya scintillates in weighlifting


Mangalore University’s Ann Mariya sparkled in the 87+ kg women’s weightlifting event at the Khelo India University Games here on Wednesday. She lifted 129kg to break Manpreet Kaur’s clean and jerk national record (128kg) set at the Nationals earlier this year.

Mariya, who trains at the SAI here, missed out on equalling her own combined national record (231kg) set at the Nationals.
