Eight years ago, Sanjita Chanu was the country’s number one lifter in the 48 weight category. Mirabai Chanu then dreamed of defeating him. In the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, Sanjita also won gold by defeating Meera. Then Meera could only win silver in her first Commonwealth Games. After that Sanjita and Meera never played together in a single load. Seeing the increasing influence of Meera, Sanjita went to the 55 weight category. Both won golds in their respective weight categories at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, but eight years later at the 36th National Games, the two lifters faced each other in 49 weight categories for the same state, Manipur. Here Meera won the gold by lifting 191 kg, registering superiority over Sanjita. Sanjita could win silver with 187 kg.
