Pakistan’s weightlifter, Nooh opens up about his Commonwealth games triumph
Gold medalist Nooh Dastgir Butt opened up about his recent success at the Commonwealth games. Nooh bagged the first gold medal for his country in the men’s 109+kg. He lifted a total of 405kg, which included 173kg in snatch and 232kg in clean and jerk. While speaking to SAMAA TV exclusively, the weightlifter revealed that he was looking for a major medal for years. “I had been looking for a major medal for the last eight years but could not get that due to various issues,” he said. “I was well prepared for the gold in the last edition, but finished third. My father was upset with the result.” In the last Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast in 2018, Nooh finished third and bagged a bronze medal.
