Anas became only the second Indian to make the finals of the one lap race in the quadrennial Games after the legendary Milkha Singh won gold in the 440 yards race at Cardiff in 1958 in 46.6 seconds. The Indian weightlifter, who had earlier won bronze at the 2014 Glasgow Games, upped her game for this one.

World No.58 Batra first scored the biggest of her career by humbling World No.4 and multiple Olympic medallist Feng Tianwei 3-2 before brushing aside 100th-ranked Yihan Zhou 3-0 to engineer a sensational win over the mighty Singapore side.

And there was great success for England's powerlifters.

Caster Semenya bids to win gold in the 1,500 meters on the Commonwealth Games track on Tuesday in the first half of a potential middle-distance double.

India were very much the underdogs, with not a single gold to show for from this particular event while Malaysia were the three-time defending champions.

As the athletics events begins at the ongoing Commonwealth Games, Nigeria's Fadekemi Olude, a race-walker finished with a time of 1:49:31secs, a few minutes behind Australia's Jane Kara Saville Games record of 1:32:46secs set in 2006.

A win would see them finish top of Pool B, and Tracey Neville's side will be hoping to avoid a semi-final match-up with hosts Australia, who are now unbeaten and top of Pool A.

When the officers arrived, police said , Vassell took a two-handed shooting stance and pointed an object at them. Footage shows a man that police believe to be Saheed Vassell holding a gray object and pointing it at people.

Connie and Rebecca will also compete in the pairs event this week. In the men's match-ups, Ravi Kumar shot a total of 244.1 to bag a bronze medal in men's category.

First it was Stephen Kiprotich in Marathon at the 2012 London Olympics.

"I was expecting a fight from the Fijian lifter but it was the English girl who gave a good fight", said Punam. So targeting a record as the oldest competitor to debut at the Commonwealth Games hasn't been too daunting. Police said McComb was arrested and issued with an infringement notice for public nuisance and violence.

The Indian duo completely dominated the game as they won 11-8, 11-5, 11-3 to help India clinch the gold medal in the men's team event.

At the Commonwealth Games, his goal had been to win gold as well.

The Games will run for another week, ending on 15 April. However, the most astonishing development was that Sajan Prakash entered the men's 100m butterfly final, a sport which has been dominated by Australia so far.
