April 5, 2018: Weightlifter Saikhom Mirabai Chanu gave India its first gold medal in the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2018. 


World Champion Chanu, 23,  who hails from Manipur grabbed gold in women’s 48 kg weightlifting soon after weightlifter P Gururaja won the men’s 56 kg silver -- India’s first medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.
Chanu started off on a rousing note by breaking the existing Games record with a lift of 80 kg. She went on to break the record another two times with successful attempts of 84 kg and 86 kg, the latter being her new personal best. The Indian star started the clean and jerk session in similar fashion, lifting 103 kg in her first attempt to take the lead straightaway.
