CWG 2018 | Indian men's table tennis team win gold in team event

Welsh weightlifter was attempting a 160kg lift at the Commonwealth Games on Sunday

"I'm actually quite upset that she didn't get to compete because I actually love watching her perform". She likes dancing. She likes photoshoots. That's why her pendant's table-tennis racquet-shaped.

Her coach, husband and the Indian shooting team's manager Raunak Pandit was by her side as she spoke and when asked what went into maintaining consistency at the highest level, Sidhu turned to her better half for answers.

Gold Coast:Manika Batra inspired India to a historic gold medal with her stunning singles victories, fashioning an unthinkable 3-1 victory over four-time gold medallists Singapore in the final of the women's team event at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.

After the women's team won gold yesterday, the men weren't too behind as they beat Nigeria 3-0 in the final.

In the third match, Sathiyan and Harmeet duo again made a strong comeback in the game 8-11, 11-7, 11-9, 11-8, with the Singapore pair of Ji Pong and Ietah Poh 8-11 before losing in the game.

The 27-year-old was forced to abandon the lift at the last second after resting the bar on his windpipe for too long

Thakur, on the other hand, was quite cheeky about his bronze, which is a lesser medal compared to the silver he won in the 2014 Glasgow Games in the 85kg category.

The women's hockey team showed tremendous grit to stun Olympic champions England in its third pool match in what can only be described as a morale-soaring 2-1 victory, which took them closer to a semifinal berth.

"But then it's all about fate, I got what was my destiny and she got what was her destiny". She also said that while her family always supported her, some "well-wishers" would often advise her to pursue modelling and leave a "not-so-lucrative' sport like table tennis".

The 22-year-old won the South Asia Group qualification tournament to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics, where she attracted a lot of attention for painting her nails in the tri-colour. The 22-year-old has been the leading female Indian TT player for some time, but this was clearly her best performance on the big stage.
