Canada’s Joanna Brown took the bronze medal in the women’s triathlon at the Commonwealth Games

The Canadian national basketball team on Saturday defeated the Nigerian national male basketball team, D'Tigers, 82-67 points at the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

It came as Australia claimed a remarkable five golds in the pool, led by Kyle Chalmers, who won the 200m freestyle and anchored their victory in the 4x100m freestyle relay.

Venkat Rahul, the 21-year-old from Andhra Pradesh, lifted a total of 338 kg - 151 kg in snatch and 187 in clean and jerk - to bring maiden gold medal for India in this weight category. "I really have to do well at the Gold Coast Games", she had said.

Sanjita entered the Gold Coast Games as one of the brightest medal hopes for India - she won gold four years ago at the Glasgow CWG in the 48kg category - and having switched to the 53kg category she lived upto her billing. The other Indian participant in the event, Sonali Mayanglambam didn't start.

The 11-8, 11-8, 5-11, 15-13 win continued a recent run of wins for Evans against 2014 Commonwealth Games silver medalist Massaro, including the world championships in December.

It was the second medal on day three at the Velodrome after Emma Cumming snatched a surprise bronze in the women's 500 metre time trial, edging team-mate Natasha Hansen by eight one thousandths of a second. The 21-year-old from Stuartpuram in Andhra Pradesh may have been surprised by how much the Samoan had improved in snatch, equaling his best effort of 151kg on Saturday, but played the pressure game admirably to secure the nation's fourth gold and sixth medal. The Indian Hockey team gave away the lead in the dying moments against Pakistan to draw 2-2. India's men's paddlers will meet Singapore in the semifinals, defeating Malaysia 3-1, while the women's team will face England in the last four after defeating Malaysia 3-0.

Both the lifters opted for 191kg as their final clean and jerk lift and both of them failed but Rahul clinched the top prize owing to Opeloge's failed second attempt at a 188kg lift.

New Zealand has two players through to the semifinals of singles play at the squash competition with women's second seed and world No.4 Joelle King and men's second seed and world No.9 Paul Coll winning their delayed quarter-final contests in relatively straightforward fashion. She couldn't get a valid lift. In fact, he won two gold medals in junior and senior categories and setting a couple of records.
