World Champion weightlifter Mirabai Chanu pulls out of the Asian Games

PTI
World Champion weightlifter Mirabai Chanu pulled out of the Asian Games after failing to recover from a lower back injury.  Indian Weightlifting Federation Secretary Sahdev Yadav said that the decision comes in the wake of national coach Vijay Sharma recommendation that the Commonwealth gold-medallist must pull out of Jakarta event from 18th of this month to be fit for the Olympic qualifiers, later this year. 

The reigning CWG champion is struggling with an unidentified lower-back problem since May and is yet to begin full-fledged weight training.  The Manipuri weightlifter's absence from the upcoming Asian Games comes as a huge setback for India, as she was considered as one of the strongest contenders for a gold medal in the event.
