CWG 2018: Manika Batra leads Women Table Tennis team for historic gold

Unimpressive show for Malawi Queens at Commonwealth Games: lose to Uganda

"I am confident of a better medal at the Asian Games", he said. He cleared 154 kg in snatch before creating a new Commonwealth and CWG record by lifting 216 kg in the clean and jerk.

Paddler Manika Batra inspired India to a historic gold medal with her stunning singles victories, fashioning an unthinkable 3-1 win over formidable Singapore in the final of the women's team event at the Commonwealth Games.

India have won five weightlifting gold medals so far.

Vikas, on the other hand, lifted a combined total of 351 kg (159 kg in snatch and 192 kg in clean and jerk) to win his second medal after winning silver in Glasgow in the men's 85 kg category.

Yadav, a native of Uttar Pradesh, had claimed a silver at last year's Commonwealth Championships, her first event after making the jump from 63kg to 69kg category. She started with an 80kg lift in the snatch before managing an effort of 84 kg. Interestingly, all gold medals for India have come in weightlifting at Gold Coast. "She was capable of pulling it off", Yadav said after the medal ceremony.

In the women's team squash semi-finals against England, India bossed England 3-0 to enter the final. Madhurika Patkar and Mouma Das, however, outlasted the Singapore duo to extend India's lead to 2-1. "A well deserved and historic Gold for the Indian women's Table Tennis team!" In a superb performance, Rani Rampal's team fought back from conceding an early goal in the 35th second with Navneet Kaur scoring the equaliser the 41st minute off a superb pass from Rani, and six minutes later it was Gurjit Kaur who interjected the ball into the nets for the defining goal of the match.

"Having the support from the men's team and my own women's team encouraged me to do my very best", she added. Sheeraj Sheikh finished seventh and Smit Singh 11th out of 15 competitors.
