  • Pearson pull-out overshadows start of Commonwealth Games

He shifted to weightlifting from wrestling after watching Sushil Kumar win gold in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

The gold medal was won by Muhammad Aznil Bidin of Malaysia who lifted 288kg.

She won Olympic gold in 2012 in London after a silver medal win in Beijing in 2008.

Chanu, who was a silver medalist at Glasgow in 2014, lifted 26kg more than Mauritian Marie Hanitra Roilya Ranaivosoa, who sealed silver, while Sri Lanka's Dinusha Gomes won the bronze medal. She went on to break the record two more times with successful attempts of 84 kg and 86 kg, the latter being her new personal best.

Already 2-0 up, Harmeet Desai and Sathiyan teamed up to beat Yuvraaj Dookram and Aaron Wilson 3-0 (11-9, 11-4, 11-4) in the men's doubles match, making it 3-0 in favour of the Indians. The Manipuri powerhouse registered 86 kg in the snatch and 110 kg in clean and jerk for a total of 196 kg. In his snatch attempt, Ahmad lifted 117kg, which was also a Games record.

At the Commonwealth Championships in September previous year, Gururaja took a bronze medal with a total lift of 246kg (107 snatch and 139 in the clean and jerk).

Desperate to make up on lost ground, he decided on a fearless but ultimately futile attempt to match the existing Games record of 145 kg, which saw him crash out of contention for medal.

He ended up 9kg shy of Chaturanga Lakmal's total of 248kg. I had a big role to play.

"I'm probably 90 per cent there", she said.

"Then I looked up at the board and I saw that I'd won", she said shortly after receiving her gold medal from Prince Charles, who is representing his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, at the games.

After a comprehensive 5-0 victory over minnows and neighbouring country Sri Lanka, the Indian badminton team would be brimming with confidence when it meets arch-rivals Pakistan at the Carrara Sports Centre in Queensland for its second group stage match of the day. Sajan Prakash failed to even make the semifinals in the same event.
