On the Day 2 of 2018 Gold Coast Games, Indian weightlifting continued to bag medals with Sanjita Chanu winning the gold and Deepak Lather the bronze to increase the Indian medal tally, whereas the badminton team and boxers remained unbeaten.
She, then, followed that up by clinching her 12th Paralympic and Commonwealth Games gold in 2.27.72, some four seconds faster than Canada's Aurelie Rivard and Australia's Katherine Downie.
There's plenty of action to get to today, including the distribution of 22 gold medals, so let's dive straight in.
The 24-year-old Manipuri claimed the 53kg category gold on Friday after breaking the Games record in snatch.
"It's very sad that the injuries occurred but it's really pulled us together as as team", said Fenton, 17. "That was the first time ever I did not feel in control of the race - I let the event get to me and thought about the result not the process". It was perhaps the reason why he and his coaches did not push him to snatch more than 144kg and 173kg in clean and jerk for a total of 317kg, well below his personal bests of 152kg, 187kg and 339kg respectively.
Sanjita won a 48kg category gold medal at the 2014 Glasgow CWG.
Rosenstein Explicitly Expanded Mueller Investigation to Include Manafort
Trump, you will recall, was convinced at one time he was not under investigation. In lieu of an indictment, Mueller could write a report savaging Trump.
There was a winning start for Team Bath's Eboni Beckford-Chambers, Bournemouth-born Geva Mentor, competing in her fifth commonwealth games, and the rest of the England netball squad who put in a strong second half showing to overcome Scotland 74-28.
But after a day on which the twin medals were both gold, one can expect them to flow a bit more freely now. India's Table Tennis Women's team has also made it through to the next round, beating Malaysia 3-0 overall. Deborah Herold and Aleena Reji lost in the quarter-finals of the women's sprint event.
Indian woman para-swimmer Kiran Tak finished seventh in the women's S9 100m backstroke final of the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Friday.
South African Mona Pretorius hit a personal best in her final attempt to win the bronze medal. Le Clos entered the games hoping to beat the record of 18 career medals at the games but can't do that on the Gold Coast now after missing the podium in two of his first three events.
