Sanjita Chanu at Commonwealth Games 2018 in Gold Coast

Indian weightlifters continued their medal rush at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games as Vikas Thakur won a bronze to gift India its eighth medal in the sport on Sunday. With a 2-1 lead, all eyes were on Nehwal now and the veteran shuttler did not disappoint the Indian fans. Congratulations to the team. In 2014 Commonwealth Games at Glasgow in Scotland, Punam Yadav had won Bronze. 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. In the next singles rubber, Patkar failed to carry on with the momentum, losing 11-13, 2-11, 6-11 to Yu to level the tie at 1-1.

Creating a major upset, Batra did the impossible with a comfortable 11-7 win over Yihan Zhou in the third game. In a hard-fought contest Manika rallied back to snatch the first game.

She came to India camp in 2014 after taking up weightlifting on the insistence of her elder sister.

Saina, playing her fifth match in the last four days, was in complete command as she took down Singapore's Jia Min Yeo 21-8, 21-15 to steer the side through after a shock loss in men's doubles.
