Another Sanjita Chanu, one more gold

Commonwealth Games 2018 Medal Table Mirabai Chanu Wins Gold India Lead Countrywise Tally of GC 2018 Medal Winners

Sanjita Chanu was the face of Indian weightlifting at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, when she won the country's first gold in Glasgow in the women's 48kg division.

Australia topped the overall medal standings with 20 golds, six ahead of England and 15 clear of Canada. She began the snatch with a lift of 81kg, equalled the CWG record with 83kg in her second attempt and then made the record her own with a super lift of 84kg, which gave her a lead of 3kg heading into the clean & jerk section. While Chanu broke down in tears when she was presented her medal, Lather was grinning ear to ear and in mild disbelief at his good fortune. Of the 17 gold medals awarded eight went to the hosts.

The only disappointment in the weightlifting arena was Saraswati Rout in the women's 58kg category. He managed 136 kilograms in the snatch and 159 kg in clean and jerk for a total of 295 kg. Indian hopes in the individual events now rest exclusively on eighth seed Joshna Chinnappa, who beat Tamika Saxby in straight games.

Sivalingam won the third gold medal for India in weightlifting as he lifted 317 kg in total, 144 kg in Snatch and 173 kg in Clean-and-Jerk in Men's 77 kg weightlifting event here.

"It is a new start for me after the problems of 2017". I really wanted to do it.

"But I guess it's ok, I don't know", said the reigning Commonwealth Championships gold-medallist. They had shockingly lost 2-3 to a much lower-ranked Wales in the campaign opener.

Meanwhile in the boxing event, debutants Naman Tanwar (91kg) and Amit Panghal (49kg) were unmoved by their opponents and entered the quarterfinals in style.

Cycling update: India will be represented by 18 year old Aleena Reji, who is from Kerala & 23 year old Deborah who is from Nicobar.

Adam Peaty has gone full cycle, defending his Commonwealth Games title in the 100-meter breaststroke on Saturday to complete a four-year unbeaten run in the event.

New Zealand has two players through to the semifinals of singles play at the squash competition with women's second seed and world No.4 Joelle King and men's second seed and world No.9 Paul Coll winning their delayed quarter-final contests in relatively straightforward fashion.

Indian woman para-swimmer Kiran Tak finished seventh in the women's S9 100m backstroke final of the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Friday.
