 Poojary lifts 118kg in snatch; India weightlifter looks to emulate Sargar's success

Sanket Sargar opened the country's medal tally at the Commonwealth Games by claiming a silver medal in the men's 55kg category. The 21-year-old looked on course to win the gold but two failed clean and jerk attempts spoiled his chances as he lifted a total of 248kg (113kg 135kg) to finish second. Star weightlifter Mirabai Chanu will be also seen in action on the second day of the Commonwealth Games, as India look for more success. Chanu, the Tokyo Olympics silver medallist, will not only look to defend her CWG title but also add a third medal at the Games. Boxer Lovlina Borgohain will also be in action later in the night (12 AM IST), as she begins her campaign on Day 2. The Indian hockey team will be facing Wales in a tricky game in Group B, and will aim to continue on the momentum after a 5-0 win over Ghana on Friday. Srihari Nataraj, meanwhile, will be taking part in the medal race after qualifying for the final last night. His race starts at 1:35 AM IST.
