Commonwealth Games: Kenyan swimmers in deep waters, lifters weighed down

Commonwealth Games 2018 Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu clinches first gold for India

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. Lather bagged a bronze medal in the men's 69 kilogram competition.

Lukose lifted 282kgs (127kg snatch, 155kg clean-and-jerk) to finish 10th in the competition won by India's Satish Kumar Sivalingam (317kg) with silver going to England's Jack Oliver (312kg) and Australia's Francois Etoundi (305) settling for bronze.

Meanwhile, Ragala lifted 182 kg in her first attempt at clean and jerk, following it with a lift of 187 kg before missing the third attempt of 191 kg.

DAILY POST reports that Nigeria's D'Tigers will continue their quest for a Commonwealth Games classification when they take on Canada at the weekend in the men's preliminary Round Pool A.

India's artistic gymnasts Pranati Das and Pranati Nayak qualified for the individual women's all-round and vault finals respectively on a disappointing day for World Cup medallist Aruna Budda Reddy. India's men's paddlers will meet Singapore in the semifinals, defeating Malaysia 3-1, while the women's team will face England in the last four after defeating Malaysia 3-0.

The Indian team, chasing its first CWG medal after the 2006 Melbourne Games silver, trailed the first 30 minutes of the match, scored a couple of goals in the third period to draw level before conceding one in the dying minutes of the match to end up on the losing side.

"We have a strong table tennis men's team with the presence of Aruna Quadri and Segun Toriola".

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

It was an inspiring win for both the Nigerian men and women boxing teams following the ousters of Adeola Soyoye (men's lightweight) and Osita Umeh (women's welterweight) on Thursday.

The Indian then walked out to set a new CWG record at 84 kg and take the lead.

A good vault worth 13.650 points lifted her from the bottom of the heap to 14th with 44.400 points, a couple of notches ahead of her team-mate Pranati Das. Having suffered an emotional blow after losing her coach Brij Kishore to cancer in Hyderabad, she found herself in the women's individual all-around final when Scotland's Cara Kennedy withdrew.
