In Hubbard's absence, Feagaiga Stowers won the gold with a total of 253 kilograms. "Now, we must take this form into the World Championships (in Sweden from April 29 to May 6)". Welcome to another day of action from the sunny Gold Coast. Staring at an early exit after they had made their goals of winning a Commonwealth gold apparent, the team had some soul searching to do. This is my first Commonwealth Games and I don't want to mess that up.

India's Gold medal haul shows no signs of slowing down as the country is in third place in the CWG 2018 medals table. This was India's second gold in shooting. After women, it is Indian men who have bagged the gold medal in TT team event in CWG 2018. Since the Rio Olympic Games, we have been doing pretty well.

Asked how she would celebrate her win, Kinsella said: "With food".

The men's and women's 100-meter finals are scheduled for late Monday. On Tuesday, shooters Gagan Narang and Heena Sidhu will be India's biggest hope for a gold medal. It's going to be very tough with the Jamaicans and the South Africans so it is going to be fast.

KING IS SQUASH QUEEN: Joelle King beat England's Sarah-Jane Perry 3-2 to become the first New Zealander to win a women's squash gold medal at the Commonwealth Games. Teetering on the brink of elimination at multiple points in the final, Sidhu fought back to finish second and redeem herself after failing to win a medal at the Glasgow Games.

Pitcairn is also slated to compete in the Queen's Prize individual event, which starts Wednesday. I will try my best to win a medal at the Olympics, but one can never be sure about such things.

England diver Tom Daley has withdrawn from the 10-meter platform because of a recurring hip injury.

"I am gutted, I know I am so much better than that and then I go and do that", she said. So targeting a record as the oldest competitor to debut at the Commonwealth Games hasn't been too daunting.

Sean McComb, a 25-year-old boxer from Northern Ireland, was fined 756 Australian dollars ($580) and banned from the Gold Coast night club district after an altercation with security overnight. I asked at our local club, and the girls were always with me. Police said McComb was arrested and issued with an infringement notice for public nuisance and violence.

Manika Batra, world number 58 and India's number one, playing what she called "easily the best table tennis [I have] played in [my] life", led India to a historic win against Singapore, a team that has not lost at the Commonwealth Games since 2002, in the finals, with a score of 3-1, thus clinching the coveted gold. However, the most astonishing development was that Sajan Prakash entered the men's 100m butterfly final, a sport which has been dominated by Australia so far.
