Common Wealth Games 2018: Gururaja opens India's account with silver in weightlifting

Common Wealth Games 2018: Gururaja opens India's account with silver in weightlifting

Australian Olympic champion Mack Horton won the men's 400m freestyle gold at the Games with compatriot Jack McLoughlin taking silver and England's James Guy winning the bronze medal.

The 31-year-old has been battling the nagging Achilles tendon complaint that threatened her participation in the Games on her native Gold Coast. Manika Batra hardly broke a sweat in her 11-3, 11-5, 11-3 victory over Erandi Warusawithana in the first singles before Sutirtha Mukherjee made it 2-0 up for India with an easy 11-5, 11-8, 11-4 win over Ishara Manikku Badu. "I thought that was going to stand for a long time ... just a bit gobsmacked really".

Abeiku will be competing in his second Commonwealth Games for Ghana after making his debut in Glasgow four years ago. He failed to lift the weight of 138kg in his first two attempts but managed to lift it in his final attempt to secure the silver medal. While bronze went to Sri Lanka's Chaturanga Lakmal (248kg). The Indians on the whole was never on par of their known performance level at any time of the match and blew away as many as 14 penalty corners before succumbing to the humiliating defeat.

Veteran Manoj Kumar (69kg) was the lone boxer in action today and the 2010 CWG gold-medallist hammered Nigeria's Osita Umeh to move into the pre-quarterfinals.

While Pallikal got the better of Trinidad and Tobago's Charlotte Knaggs, Chinnappa sailed past Papua New Guinea's Lynette Vai.

Rams agree to one-year deal with Ndamukong Suh
The New York Jets are sending mixed signals on their decision to bail out of the Ndamukong Suh sweepstakes. The second overall pick in the 2010 draft, Suh has 420 tackles and 51 1/2 sacks in his eight-year career.

Mixed doubles pair Chris and Gabby Adcock overcame Kasirye Brian and Nakiyemba Aisha while Rajiv Ouseph and Chloe Birch followed that with wins in their singles games against Edwin Ekiring and Shamim Bangi respectively.

"I still enjoy wrestling, I still love the sport a lot". It was not the way I was taught to play squash. "It was too heavy for me", he said.

Earlier in the day, the star-studded Indian team thrashed a rather incompetent Sri Lankan side 5-0.

-The event will run from April 4th -15, 2018. Sajan Prakash failed to even make the semifinals in the same event.
