Indian women's table tennis team created history at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast on Sunday as they beat Singapore 3-1 in the gold medal match.

For Thakur, the medal was a climbdown from the 2014 edition where he had claimed a silver with a lesser lift of 333kg. The lifter from Uttar Pradesh improved upon the bronze medal she won four years ago in Glasgow with a combined effort of 222 (100 in snatch and 122 in clean and jerk) to take India's overall medal tally at the Gold Coast Games to seven.

Thakur lifted a total of 351 kg in men's 94 kg weightlifting. Kari's total lift of 370kg was a shade more than Santavy's. Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu won gold in the 48 kg category on Thursday.

He attempted to break the CWG record for a second time by going for 217 kg in his third and last attempt. We feel happy to see medals coming in and women athletes leading. "So, definitely this time around we have an all round team with all five events taken care of, that gives the entire team a lot of confidence and also makes us stronger", she explained.

In clean and jerk, the Ludhiana power-man successfully completed his first attempt of 192 kg, however, his next two attempts went in vain as he failed to lift 200 kg to drop to bronze medal spot.

India now ranks third in the medal tally with the ten medals.
