Gehlot was competing in the 125kg Raw category, while Gaurav Sharma competing in the 140kg+ Raw category for India.
Meanwhile, Vaibhav Rana and Kanwardeep Singh were part of the 125kg Raw category and 110kg Raw category respectively.
In these competitions “equipment” refers to a supportive bench shirt or squat/deadlift suit or briefs.
Thus he is now the World champion for the second time and is the first Indian ever to achieve this feat.
The World Powerlifting Championship is a three-day event and would conclude on October 15.
