Lalrinnunga’s removal stems from his refusal to travel to the United States for rehabilitation of his back injury. Additionally, he did not participate in the trials for both the Asian Games and World Championships.

On Thursday, Sahdev Yadav, the President of the Indian Weightlifting Federation (IWLF), confirmed that Jeremy Lalrinnunga, aged 20, did not take part in the trials for the Asian Games and the World Championships, which were conducted in Patiala on June 30. Moreover, Yadav mentioned that Lalrinnunga declined to travel to St. Louis at the eleventh hour, despite the proposal being approved by the Target Olympic Podium Scheme.

Yadav told reporters.

“When Jeremy was injured, we told him to move to St Louis immediately for rehab. We spoke in the ministry as he is eligible under the TOPS scheme, but he refused to go there,”

“He is a talented kid, but he did not come for the trials of the World Championships and Asian Games. So, we asked him to go back to Army Sports Institute and come back when he is ready,”

Jeremy, who secured a Commonwealth gold medal in 2022, has been facing injury challenges. Immediately after the Commonwealth Games (CWG), he suffered a back injury and is currently grappling with a knee injury. Sanket Sargar was also absent from the camp due to his ongoing injury recovery.
