In the Phuket, Thailand, on Tuesday, Indian weightlifter Bindyarani Devi won a bronze medal at the IWF World Cup 2024 in the non-Olympic women’s 55kg category. She achieved a total lift of 196kg (83kg snatch + 113kg clean and jerk), finishing third overall.

Despite this setback, Bindyarani Devi still earned a silver medal in the clean and jerk segment and currently holds the 29th position in the Olympic Qualification Ranking for the women’s 59kg category.

The gold medal at IWF World Cup went to Kang Hyon Gyong of North Korea, who lifted a total of 234kg (103kg snatch + 131kg clean and jerk). Mihaela Cambei of Romania secured a silver medal with a personal best of 201kg (91kg + 110 kg).
