    Interesting anecdote from Jeremy!

    Indian weightlifter Jeremy Lalrinnunga, who won the country its fifth medal at Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham after he captured a Gold in men’s 67 kg final, shared an interesting story behind the tattoo he wears on his left arm. On his left arm features a tattoo depicting a person lifting weights, with date 11 November 2011 written above it in Roman numerals. This tattoo signifies him and the day he started lifting weights.

    Just below this, features a depiction of a man standing straight, wearing boxing gloves. This signifies his father Lalneihtluanga, who used to be a boxer.

    “This story behind this tattoo is that my father used to be a boxer and I am a weightlifter. This tattoo shows just that,” said Jeremy after his match
