Commonwealth Games: Indian cyclists disappoint in qualifiers

Former British colonies like Pakistan compete at the Games

In the men's 56kg competition, Malaysia's Muhammad Azroy Hazalwa Izhar Ahmad came out on top with a Commonwealth Games record.

Chanu, who was a silver medalist at Glasgow in 2014, lifted 26kg more than Mauritian Marie Hanitra Roilya Ranaivosoa, who sealed silver, while Sri Lanka's Dinusha Gomes won the bronze medal.

The 31-year-old Pearson said she had no choice but to withdraw from the 100-meter hurdles and the 4-x100 relay, take some rest and start thinking about the 2019 world championships and 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He bettered the previous record of 116 kg set by his compatriot Ibrahim at the New Delhi Games in 2010.

Talib topped the snatch standings with a Commonwealth Games record lift of 132kg. The team would, however, miss their marquee player PV Sindhu for the second time today as its learned that she has chosen not to feature in the fixture in order to fully recover from the ankle niggle she suffered a few days ago. Chaturanga Lakmal of Sri Lanka claimed bronze with a total of 248 kg. When I saw him I really wanted to take up wrestling.

The game was part of the table tennis team event, a best-of-five series, which Wales lost 3-1 against one of the medal favorites.

In the swimming pool, Virdhawal Khade qualified for the semifinals of the 50m men's butterfly event but could not make the final, finishing 15th overall.

"I was devastated after not winning a medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games". 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.
