medallists celebrate together.
Sri Lanka’s Chinthana Vidanage won the gold medal in the Men’s 62kg Weightlifting event earlier today.

Arun Murugesan of India also lifted 271kg (121+150) but missed out on the gold medal on account of his higher body weight. Murugesan weighed 61.87 kg to Vidanage's 61.79 kg.
