Share

The 16-year old from Haryana put up a tremendous performance to upstage more seasoned shooters as she shot a 240.9, a Commonwealth Games record.

"I was expecting a good fight but from Fiji not England".

Vikas, who had taken silver in the 85 kg division at the 2014 CWG in Glasgow, Scotland, registered some of his best lifts in worldwide competition.

Punam lifted a total of 222 kg which included 100 kg in snatch and 122 kg in clean and jerk.

That being said, this is the first Gold for India's Women's Team in Table Tennis at the Commonwealth Games. Despite all, he was the fifth-best among the lot that lifted in the men's 94 kg category.

On Saturday, Sathish Kumar Sivalingam won gold in Men's 77 kg weightlifting category.

It was mother of all upsets as prior to this final, the Singapore women's team had never lost in the Commonwealth Games since the sport was inducted in the program way back in 2002.

While Kari celebrated on stage, overcome with joy and cheered on by an admiring crowd, the story was very different for his closest competitor - Canadian Boady Santavy. As the competition progressed, Bhaker fired 10, 10.3, 10.6, a sensational 10.9 and a 10.4, which put her in the lead position for gold. Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu won gold in the 48 kg category on Thursday. We feel happy to see medals coming in and women athletes leading.

Currently, India's medal tally reads six gold, two silver and three bronze - five gold from the weightlifting and one from shooting.

With that bronze of his, Vikas has taken India's weightlifting medals tally to eight and overall to 11.

They remained fourth in the medal table behind leaders Australia, England and Canada.
