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 World Powerlifting Championship, lifts may be performed equipped or un-equipped and thus it is typically called ‘Raw’ lifting competition. Though in IPF specifically un-equipped lifting is called ‘Classic’.



 

In these competitions “equipment” refers to a supportive bench shirt or squat/deadlift suit or briefs.

October 13’s gold was Gehlot’s second Gold in the World Championship as he had earlier won gold in 2013.

Thus he is now the World champion for the second time and is the first Indian ever to achieve this feat.
