BIRMINGHAM: Nooh Dastagir Butt brought honour to Pakistan by helping them win its first gold medal at the Commonwealth Games (CWG) in 2022.
Hussain Shah’s bronze medal was Pakistan’s first at the CWG 2022, but just hours later, Butt demonstrated his superiority by winning the gold and breaking several CWG records.
Butt set a new CWG record for the 109+ kg division by snatching 173 kg. Butt lifted 232 kg in the clean and jerk to break yet another record. Butt lifted 405 kg in total, a CWG record.
Weightlifter Nooh Dastagir Butt winning his first gold medal at the Commonwealth Games (CWG) in 2022 is a memorable occasion for Pakistan.
Nooh Butt broke two records in the 109+kg division by snatching 173 kg and clean and jerking 232 kg. Butt lifted 405 kg in total, which is a record for CWG 2022.
David Andrew of New Zealand lifted 394 kg to win silver, while Singh Gurdeep of India lifted 390 kg to win bronze.
Butt won a bronze medal in the 105+ kg division at the 2018 CWG. Talha Talib, who competed in the 62kg division and also took home bronze, was with him.
In the history of the CWG, Pakistan has only ever won a gold medal in weightlifting. Shujauddin Malik won gold in the 85 kg division in 2006.
He believes that the year he took off taught him a lot, most notably that winning is important to him and that getting back on one’s feet is important even when the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB), the Pakistan Olympic Association (POA), and the government did not support him despite the fact that he was one of the best athletes to emerge from Pakistan.
He recounted how his family had struggled with his thigh muscle rupture and rehabilitation because there were no sports medicine specialists in Pakistan and neither the PSB nor the POA offered any assistance.
It was difficult for me to not be able to compete, therefore it was a gloomy moment for me.
He acquired Covid-19 during the pandemic and was unable to compete in the Tokyo Olympics qualifying stages. However, he made the decision that he wanted to heal quickly in order to compete more effectively.
“I can say that my stakes in the Commonwealth Games are really high because I want to at least be able to demonstrate here all of the hard work that I have put in over the past 12 to 14 years of my life. I also want to win an Olympic medal. I would have if I were physically capable, but the goal is to triumph and honour my nation in order to finally have better outcomes, said Nooh.
