Meanwhile, reigning national champion Narayan Ajith put up an underwhelming display to sign off in the second spot in Group C of the men’s 73kg event. 

The Commonwealth Championships gold medallist lifted 133kg in snatch and 157kg in the clean and jerk section for a total effort of 290kg, which is 22kg less than the 312kg he lifted at the World Championships in September.
