Commonwealth Games gold medallist Achinta Sheuli (73kg) withdrew from competition after experiencing a hamstring pull at the World weightlifting championships in Bogota on Friday. “Achinta pulled his hamstring muscle when he was in the warm-up area after the weigh-in. We withdrew him before the snatch event as there was a possibility of the injury getting aggravated,” said chief national coach Vijay Sharma. Achinta was slated to compete in Group C of men’s 73kg weight class.
