Indian weightlifter Shubham Todkar eyeing good outing at World Championships

Greater Noida, Jul 13 (PTI) After underwhelming performances at two senior international events, Indian weightlifter Shubham Todkar is keen to give a better account of himself on his debut World Championships in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia later this year.

The 26-year-old national champion from Vadgaon Maval in Maharashtra has been among the top lifters on the domestic circuit in recent years but has failed to impress in the international arena.

Shubham competed at the Asian Championships in May where he finished 10th. At the ongoing Commonwealth Championships he won the gold in a three-lifter field but his performance was far from satisfactory. In fact, Sidhanta Gogoi, competing in the junior category, out-performed him.

“My performance wasn’t good. My body felt dull so I couldn’t get the total weight I was expecting. But still I managed to win the gold. Thanks to God,” Shubham told
