  • Canada loses appeal of field hockey suspension at Commonwealth Games

His third attempt, four kilos above his previous two - 152 kg, too was successful as he sat comfortably in the second position by the end of the round. What makes the win really impressive is that this was the Singapore women's team's first loss in the Commonwealth Games since the event was introduced in 2002.

And there was great success for England's powerlifters. Competing in the 69kg category, the weight class once made famous by Karnam Malleswari, Punam won gold in Gold Coast with a combined effort of 222kg (100kg in snatch and 122kg in clean and jerk).

"The approach we take to the 2019 Pan American Games and the 2020 Olympic Games will not be the same as the approach we took to this year's Commonwealth Games". To conclude, only the three of us were inside the arena, but Pooja (Sahasrabudhe) and Sutirtha (Mukherjee) have played an equally important role in bringing the gold home.

The debutant duo of Gaurav Solanki (52kg) and Manish Kaushik (60kg) advanced to the quarterfinals, continuing Indian boxers' fine preliminary run at the Commonwealth Games here on Monday.

Meanwhile, quarter-miler Muhammed Anas qualified for the finals after winning his semi-final heat in 45.44 seconds.

Robert Pitcairn, the 79-year-old Canadian and oldest-ever athlete to at the Commonwealth Games, finished eighth in the Queen's Prize Pairs shooting event with partner Nicole Rossignol. "Since I had won bronze there, I chose to change my category".




First it was Stephen Kiprotich in Marathon at the 2012 London Olympics.

"The crowd was absolutely magnificent - I felt just like a big embrace and I wanted to give them something that reflected the best I could do", Hubbard said of her decision to risk pushing for a record.

"The main reason for our focus on track is the level of competition in the track events at the Commonwealth Games". Local media reported that McComb had been drinking with friends when he was removed from the nightclub, and police were called when McComb tried to re-enter the club.

McComb's night out came after he was beaten by England's Luke McCormack in the 64-kilogram division on Sunday.

Jitu started the gold rush today in the 10m air pistol event, shrugging off a weak qualifying round to shatter the Games record with a score of 235.1 in the final. Indian Woman Table Tennis Team Wins Gold For India at CWG 2018!

It was bad news in the men's 100m as well as Adam Gemili was forced to pull out through injury before the race as Akani Simbine took gold, former world champion and pre-race favourite Yohan Blake forced to settle for bronze.
