If Mirabai Chanu was the toast of the nation on Thursday, it was the turn of Sanjita to be in the limelight on Friday, claiming a gold and a Games' snatch record in the 53kg category. That meant that Dika Toua had to lift 113kg in her final lift, but despite giving her best she stumbled and lost grip of the bar, which meant that Sanjita was the gold medalist. England's Jacob Peters topped the qualifications, clocking 1:58.42 seconds. India now has four gold, all of which have come in the sport of weightlifting.
They lost their opening match against England and 17 hours later, were beaten by Ugandans, competing at their first Commonwealth Games, in a tough encounter.
"I can't believe I've got a Commonwealth Games gold medal and to feel as though I gave so much to the team as well, it's really satisfying", said Gentle, who missed out on a podium finish in the individual event. The 23-year-old took silver at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, before qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics in the women's 48-kg category but didn't perform how she wanted. "I'm just so glad I was able to perform for the team".
There's plenty of action to get to today, including the distribution of 22 gold medals, so let's dive straight in.
WIN OR DRAW? - For Pakistan, this 2-2 draw had the feeling of a win after coming back from an 0-2 deficit and equalizing after the fulltime siren against India.
From 4.40pm Australia's Georgia Goodwin - a Gold Coast native - will be in the medal hunt in the Women's Individual All-Around Gymnastics final. Jack Oliver of England pocketed the silver with a total of 312 kg while Francois Etoundi ensured bronze for hosts Australia with 305 kg.
On Saturday, Sathish, the defending champion, and Rahul overcame the pain barrier posed by their respective unhealed thigh and knee injuries to claim gold medals.
"I had no hopes of winning a medal after I injured my thighs during the national championships while attempting 194kg in clean and jerk".
"It means a lot, especially to do it in front of a home crowd", Downie said. Compatriot James Hall was second on 83.975, with Cypriot Marios Georgiou taking the bronze. In 2012, she won gold at the Commonwealth Weightlifting Championships.
