16-year old Zakayo snaps medal for Kenya in Gold Coast

India's two gold medals on Saturday came through Sathish Sivalingam (77kg) and Venkat Rahul Ragala (85kg), both of whom were not 100 per cent fit owing to respective thigh and knee injuries but still managed to keep ahead of the competition.

"This will be my first Commonwealth Games medal and I am happy to achieve that but gold is what I'm after", Mary Kom declared after her win.

Elder daughter Shashi was the first to start training as a weightlifter at the STC (SAI training center) in Varanasi, with the hope of securing a government job. In 2012, she won gold at the Commonwealth Weightlifting Championships.

Luckily for them, K Srikanth had provided the team with a 2-0 cushion with his singles win over Kean Yew Loh. The 21-year-old is now going through one of the best phases in his weightlifting career and no wonder he shot to glory in Gold Coast again. "I did not want to kept her settle so I changed my rubber after the second game", she added.

Fiji's Apolonia Vaivai won bronze with a combined total of 216kgs. His most memorable display for the crowd, though, was undoubtedly a somersault.

Cypriot Andri Eleftheriou set a new Games record after hitting 52 of the 60 targets to grab the gold medal in the women's skeet shooting finals.

Etoundi injured his left biceps on his second attempt in the clean and jerk but didn't want to let his coaches know how badly he was hurting. Her total was 220 kilograms after lifting 98 kilograms in the snatch. In the clean & jerk, Sanjita moved into gold medal position with lifts of 104kg and 108kg before losing her balance in the final attempt.

The 22-year-old Yadav, however, succeeded on her third lift to clinch gold, adding to the bronze she won in the 63kg weight division four years ago in Glasgow. I had never thought I would get to stand on the podium and watch the India flag go up.

Glaetzer qualified fastest in a games record time but said an "elementary error" cost him badly in the ride-off against Sahrom, who had been the slowest of the 16 qualifiers.
