The Indian equalled that in her third and last attempt and Vaivai's failure to lift 103 meant both lifters ended the snatch phase at the joint top spot.

Four years ago, the then 20-year-old Thakur won the silver medal in Men's 85 kg weightlifting at Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and a bronze six months ago at the Commonwealth Championships in Gold Coast.

The gold medal was taken by Steven Kari from Papua New Guinea with his combined lift of 370kg, including a final successful 216kg lift in clean and jerk.

"I was expecting a good fight but from Fiji not England".

Yadav, who hails from Dandupur village in Uttar Pradesh, was a 63kg category bronze medallist in the 2014 Glasgow Games. It was only the second table tennis team gold for India at the Games with the men achieving the feat in the 2006 Melbourne edition. Despite all, he was the fifth-best among the lot that lifted in the men's 94 kg category.


Vikas faltered in his final two attempts in clean and jerk, aiming for a 200kg lift that would have fetched him a silver.

Earlier, Mirabai Chanu (48kg), Sanjita Chanu (53kg), Sathish Sivalingam (77kg) and Venkat Rahul Ragala (85kg) had claimed gold medals in the ongoing edition. As the competition progressed, Bhaker fired 10, 10.3, 10.6, a sensational 10.9 and a 10.4, which put her in the lead position for gold. When our flag flies high, it's a proud moment for all Indians.

Just in, Singapore had won each and every Gold medal in the women's team Table Tennis event since the start of the games.

With that bronze of his, Vikas has taken India's weightlifting medals tally to eight and overall to 11.

Australia and England are leading with 61 and 34 medals respectively.
