Kumar, a CWG and World Championships bronze medalist, finished second after a successful lift of 165kg in the men’s up to 49 kg. He finished behind Paralympic champion Omar Qarada of Jordan, who had the best lift of 176kg. Kumar said,

“It was a good performance. I am happy with my lift of 165kg which I have targeted coming to the competition in Dubai. There’s work needed to be done on my technique and to do even better at the Asian Para Games,”
