CWG: Indian cyclists disappoint in men's sprint

Taylor Ruck

Earlier today, weightlifter Satish Kumar Shivalingam won India's third gold in the men's 77kg weightlifting category at Australia's Gold Coast.

She, then, followed that up by clinching her 12th Paralympic and Commonwealth Games gold in 2.27.72, some four seconds faster than Canada's Aurelie Rivard and Australia's Katherine Downie.

On Thursday, Mirabai Chanu (48kg) won a gold medal in the women's competition and P. Gururaja claimed silver in the men's 56kg category, taking the total number of medals won by weightlifters to four so far. "I really have to do well at the Gold Coast Games", she had said. "That was the first time ever I did not feel in control of the race - I let the event get to me and thought about the result not the process".

Ghana who are represented by a total of seven boxers at the Games, had lost all three hitherto fights as highly rated Abdul Wahid Omar, a bronze medallist from the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland as well as Abubakari Kwesi Quartey and team captain, Sulemanu Tetteh were eliminated from competition at the very first hurdle. Indian hopes in the individual events now rest exclusively on eighth seed Joshna Chinnappa, who beat Tamika Saxby in straight games. In a nail-biting finish, Venkat Rahul Ragala secured gold on Day 3 of the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast after Samoa's Don Opeloge failed to lift 188kg in his second attempt.
