India's MC Mary Kom has won five World Championship gold medals as well as five medals in Asian Championships.

The Indian team, chasing its first CWG medal after the 2006 Melbourne Games silver, trailed the first 30 minutes of the match, scored a couple of goals in the third period to draw level before conceding one in the dying minutes of the match to end up on the losing side.

On Day 3 action of Commonwealth Games 2018k, last edition's gold medallist Sathish Sivalingam put aside all difficulties, all excuses to secure another gold for the country.

"We admire the courage and determination of young Lori to enter and complete the triathlon. I would like to fight for one or two more years if my body allows it - I still dream of competing in everything", she said on Saturday. Congratulations to Deepak Lather for winning a Bronze in Weightlifting (Men's, 69 Kg Category) #PresidentKovind#TeamIndia on a roll, another medal won on Day 2.

Canada's Maude Charron won gold, lifting a combined 220kg, and Zoe Smith of England earned silver with a 207kg effort. The relay will make its Olympic debut as an official sport in the 2020 Tokyo Games. "The crowd made me feel at home". "I know that if I didn't have this injury, this would have been a gold medal for sure". The Indian was attempting a lift of 113kg in her final chance in clean and jerk but could not pull it off.

"A lot of people said that probably I wasn't good enough for a medal".
