CWG 2018 weightlifting: Vikas Thakur lifts bronze in Men's 94kg category

At her first CWG, the 16-year-old Bhaker put in a tremendous performance as he held her own against older and more experienced shooters, firing a total of 240.9 to take gold. The weightlifter from Uttar Pradesh finished with a combined effort of 122 (100 in snatch and 122 in clean and jerk) to take India's overall medal tally at the Gold Coast Games to seven.

Vikas faltered in his final two attempts in clean and jerk, aiming for a 200kg lift that would have fetched him a silver.

The gold went to Papua New Guinea's Steven Kari, who snatched from Canada's Boady Santavy by lifting 216kg in his last attempt in the clean and jerk. In the men's 94 kg category, Vikas Thakur won a bronze to add to India's medal tally.

India has so far won five gold medals, one silver medal and two bronze in weightlifting. "I had absolutely no idea", Jones, 28, said. The England global matched Yadav performance in clean and jerk and lifted 122kg. 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.

Yadav, a bronze-medallist from the 2014 Glasgow edition, lifted 222kg (110kg+122kg) to claim gold ahead of England's Sarah Davies, who finshed with 217kg (95kg+122kg). On Saturday, weightlifters Sathish Kumar Sivalingam and Rahul Venkat Ragala added to medal haul by winning gold medals.

Once the bar is lifted overhead, the competitor must remain motionless, arms and legs extended, with the bar and body in a straight line, until the referees make a decision which automatically registers as a visual and audible signal to replace the barbell to the platform. In the attempt to lift the weight, the knees may bend and the legs may be split. In the second lift, Yadav lifted 98 while Vaivai registered a decent 100kg in her attempt.
