IWF Youth World Championships 2024: Preetismita Bhoi sets a New World Record 

The 2024 IWF Youth World Championships started yesterday in Lima, Peru, and as expected, India’s team came out swinging.

In the last few years, the host nation for the 2036 Olympic Games has started investing in the development of youth talent, and last year, they managed to win five medals at the IWF Youth World Championships in Albania. 

This year, under the guidance of their determined head coach, Vijay Sharma, the team has set their sights on a remarkable seven or more medals.

The stage is set, and it seems they are well on their way to achieving this ambitious goal. Yesterday, Preetismita Bhoi, who’s only 15 years old, managed not only to win the gold medal in the 40 kg category but also to set a new youth world record in the Clean & Jerk by lifting 76 kg.
