Women weightlifters Mirabai Chanu (48kg) and Sanjita Chanu (53kg) had won their respective events in the first couple of days.

As the Commonwealth Games 2018 enters the third day, the tournament is finally gathering momentum and India's 220-member strong contingent has been off to a good start.

Notably, Sivalingam had qualified for the ongoing Games by winning the 77kg weightlifting title at Commonwealth and Oceania Championships in Gold Coast past year. His lift of 149kg in snatch continues to be the Games record. This is India's fifth gold medal and all of them have come in weightlifting.

Australia and England are leading with 41 and 23 medals respectively. Satish's father, who holds many titles at national level now works as a security guard at VIT University. She bettered the next attempt by lifting 108kg and failed in third while trying 112kg. Etoundi injured his shoulder after his final lift. Had he completed that lift, he could have totalled 298 kg, and which could have forced the Sri Lankan lifter to take the Bronze.

Satish had the last laugh quite comfortably in clean and jerk after Oliver failed two attempts of 171kg and settled for a total of 312kg. But that was not to be and India collected their first bronze through Lather. However, it was the clean and jerk section where he impressed the most, starting with a successful lift of 169 kg and bettering it with 173kg. Because of that, she did not feature in the next leg of the competition - clean and jerk.

IBTimes India has compiled a list of reactions to Sivalingam's gold medal-winning performance in Gold Coast. In hockey, India women's team made a U-turn and beat Malaysia 4-1.

Badminton: India take a 2-0 lead in the quarter-final tie against Mauritius.
