Nigeria Wins First Medal At 2018 C'wealth Games

India's Rahul Venkat Ragala competes in men's 85kg Weightlifting final on Saturday

Jitu started the gold rush today in the 10m air pistol event, shrugging off a weak qualifying round to shatter the Games record with a score of 235.1 in the final.

Rebecca, now a year 12 student at Siena Catholic College, is also a future star and so began the dream to play together at the Commonwealth Games. The races to determine the fastest will feature Yohan Blake on the night program.

Elsewhere, Australia is expected to add to its 20 gold medals in the pool when the swimming program ends at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre.

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.

Hubbard competed in weightlifting events as a man until beginning a transition to female aged 35. In the final attempt, the Indian player lifted 175kg.

Commonwealth Games Head of Security Danny Baade told news.com.au approximately 390 workers quit. "Without their support, it would not have been possible for me to win gold".

Hubbard will leave without a medal, but also without any bitterness. Being one set down, I did not know how I would make a comeback. "I have no regret".

"Management have thrown the staff rosters out the window, there's no adequate transport to and from venues, and they're not given enough rest time between shifts". She first upset World number four and Olympic medallist Feng Tianwei and then brushed aside Yihan Zhou to engineer a sensational win over Singapore.

As many as six players are in the top-100 of the men's world rankings and two in the women's standings.

Indian men's outfit beat Singapore 3-2 in the semi-finals before finishing on top of the podium.

It was another five setter but Abiodun prevailed over Walker 8-11, 11-9, 11-9, 6-11, and 11-8. Four years later, it was time for an upgrade.

Marios Georgiou of Cyprus won the other individual event Monday, taking gold in the parallel bars final. She won her heat in 23.09 seconds.

"I am looking forward to seeing what happens".

79-YEAR-OLD SHOOTER: Robert Pitcairn has flown in the military and foiled a potential hijacker on a commercial flight.

"The main reason for our focus on track is the level of competition in the track events at the Commonwealth Games".

Pitcairn, from Chilliwack, B.C., and teammate Nicole Rossignol of Quebec City had been ninth after the first day of the full-bore shooting competition final Monday.

Liti, dubbed "Big Bear", said his relaxed approach worked better for him.
