Ecstatic David Liti awarded Commonwealth Games gold medal

So far, they have won 19 medals - 10 of them being gold.

Heena Sidhu picked up India's third gold medal in shooting at the ongoing Commonwealth Games, finishing on top in the women's 25m pistol event and also breaking a Games record in the process.

And there was great success for England's powerlifters. In an attempt to win the gold, Gurdeep tried his hands at 218kg but failed to lift in his third attempt and finished fourth.

Nigeria's medal hopes now rests on the track and field events.

The Commonwealth Games Federation had rejected calls from the Australian Weightlifting Federation to have the 40-year-old New Zealander barred from competition, and there were some critics who believed Hubbard should not be allowed because of a perceived physical advantage. I will try my best to win a medal at the Olympics, but one can never be sure about such things.

This happens to be Pooja Sahasrabudhe and Sutirtha Mukherjee's first ever Commonwealth Games.

India were very much the underdogs, with not a single gold to show for from this particular event while Malaysia were the three-time defending champions.

Bailly often found himself out of position in the first half and tried to do too much at once by cleaning up after the midfield. The loss from last season is still in my mind. "We have to defend a little better in the second half".

"Another factor we took into consideration was the fact that, because the Games are in the southern hemisphere, they are being held early in the year during a period that conflicts with the busiest part of the Spring Classics season in Europe", he said.

British shooters also filled the podium in the men's 50-meter rifle prone - David Phelps of Wales took gold, Neil Stirton of Scotland won the silver and Kenneth Parr of England took the bronze. That's why she's one of India's best table tennis players. Daley and Goodfellow are scheduled to compete Friday. Police said McComb was arrested and issued with an infringement notice for public nuisance and violence.

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) said despite the exodus of staff, security has not been compromised.

India swept the table tennis team events of the Commonwealth Games as the men matched the women to seal a memorable gold with an emphatic 3-0 win over Nigeria in the final.

The Games will run for another week, ending on 15 April.

England had success in the squash finals where James Willstrop picked up the gold, while the Jamaican Yohan Blake failed to produce in the men's 100m sprint final, losing out to the South African duo of Akani Simbine and Henricho Bruintjies.
