“Jeremy could have done better but a mild injury during the snatch ensured that did not happen. He could easily have added 10-kg more to his score if the injury had not happened,” Sharma – who started training Jeremy from 2016 – said in a telephonic conversation.

When asked about Jeremy’s chances at the 73-kg weightlifting category at Paris, Sharma once again sounded optimistic claiming certainly he will make the cut.

“In the 73-kg category, Jeremy would have to train harder to reach the Olympics. He is playful and that is something he has to curb and focus more. The process of gaining would be natural and we are sure he would be ready in time,” Sharma added.
