Khumukcham Sanjita Chanu
- Chanu also started her career early on by taking up the sport of weightlifting in 2006, when she was just 12 years old.
- Contrary to what many believe, Mirabai and Sanjita are not related.
- After the glory of winning gold at CWG 2014, she suffered a back injury and had to miss the Asian Games and the World Weightlifting Championships, a few months later. It is very tough for an athlete to regain composure after an injury, but she was hellbent and returned to her rigorous training regime very soon.
