He created a new CWG record by lifting 168 kg in snatch and managed a best effort of 201 kg in clean and jerk.

India have won five weightlifting gold medals so far.

The competition consists of two separate lifts: The Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. After Madhurika Patkar and Mouma Das put India ahead, it was Manika Batra who thrashed Yihan Zhou in the singles challenge to bag India's first Commonwealth Gold in Table Tennis. But, out to prove that nothing is impossible for a willing heart, the Indians were simply remarkable as they out-muscled the three-time champion 3-1 for a memorable gold at the XXI Commonwealth Games.

Yadav started slowly, lifting 95 kg in her opening attempt. For the win, Yadav had to lift a total of 222kg to outclass her closest opponent Sarah Davies. However, Vaivai registered 97 kg to take the lead after the completion of the opening attempts. The Indian equalled that in her third and last attempt and Vaivai's failure to lift 103 meant both lifters ended the snatch phase at the joint top spot. I was a little nervous when Sarah went for 128kg in her final lift. In the attempt to lift the weight, the knees may bend and the legs may be split.
