CWG 2018: Vikas Thakur settles for bronze in men's 94kg weightlifting

It was only the second table tennis team gold for India at the Games with the men achieving the feat in the 2006 Melbourne edition.

"I hope to improve by at least 10 kilograms in the next months".

Punam said is financially stable after her 2014 Glasgow medal. On the day, she pulled off a personal best of 222kg (110kg+122kg) to claim the top spot ahead of England's Sarah Davies, who finished with 217kg (95kg+122kg).

Thakur lifted a total of 351kg (159kg+192kg) on a day when Papua New Guinea's Steven Kari broke the Commonwealth as well as the Games record in clean and jerk for a total lift of 370kg (154kg+216kg).

Liverpool fans inspired us against Manchester City, insists Oxlade-Chamberlain
He claims Oxlade-Chamberlain in particular has been impressive since quitting the Emirates. "It was an wonderful atmosphere, the best I've ever played in", the 24-year-old said.

Vikas Thakur added another medal to India's rich haul from weightlifting at the 2018 Commonwealth Games when he won a bronze in the men's 94kg category in Gold Coast on Sunday.

Wale's Bethan Davies returned a time of 1:36:08 secs, thereby clinching third place, Lauren Khushbir of India came fourth with a time of 1:39:21secs, while Gemma Bridge of England returned fifth with a time of 1:39:31secs. We were not that great some years ago but we are alright now.

Earlier, Mirabai Chanu (48kg), Sanjita Chanu (53kg), Sathish Sivalingam (77kg) and Venkat Rahul Ragala (85kg) had claimed gold medals in the ongoing edition. Vikas, however, could take solace from the fact that he was competing in a higher weight category at the 21st Commonwealth Games in Australia. He had lifted 151 kg in snatch and 187 kg in clean & jerk. In the first (the "clean") part, the weight is brought from the ground to shoulder-level in one motion.

In the second (the "jerk"), the competitor bends the knees, at the same time extending the arms upwards, thus lifting the bar overhead.
