Punam said is financially stable after her 2014 Glasgow medal. On the day, she pulled off a personal best of 222kg (110kg+122kg) to claim the top spot ahead of England's Sarah Davies, who finished with 217kg (95kg+122kg).

The New Zealand Women have been held to a 0-0 draw with Canada in their third pool match at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. Punam's gold also meant that the country has five gold medals in an edition of the CWG for the first time.

Thakur lifted a total of 351 kg in men's 94 kg weightlifting.

The competition consists of two separate lifts: The Snatch and the Clean and Jerk.

Venkat Rahul Ragala yesterday earned India the fourth Gold medal after lifting 338 kilograms in the Men's 85 kg category. India congratulates Punam Yadav for winning the Gold Medal in the 69 Kg women's weightlifting event.

Yadav started slowly, lifting 95 kg in her opening attempt.

However, she recovered to lift 122 kg in her third attempt and Vavai's failure at that same weight put the Indian in the leading position for the gold. In the attempt to lift the weight, the knees may bend and the legs may be split.

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. She had won a gold in Glasgow in the 48 kg category as well.
