Indian weightlifters continued to dominate at the 2018 Commonwealth Games (CWG) with the veteran Sathish Kumar Sivalingam winning gold in the men's 77 kg event on Saturday.

He took the best load of 144 in the snatch while taking the best load of 173 in clean and jerk. He won the third gold for India in the men's 77kg weightlifting category.

The 25-year-old lifted a total of total of 317kg, 11 lesser than his tally for yellow metal at Glasgow Games in 2014 where he had also achieved a Commonwealth Games record in Snatch with a 149kg lift.

Sathish had snatched 149kg and 179kg in clean and jerk for a total of 328 for his maiden Commonwealth gold medal in Glasgow 2014, but was unable to improve upon that performance and it was quite understandable as he himself pointed out the reason before dedicating the medal to this parents.

"I had no hopes of winning a medal after I injured my thighs during the National Championships while attempting 194kg in clean and jerk", Sathish was quoted by PTI. "What is even more remarkable is that you have won a second Gold medal in the successive Commonwealth Games." read a statement issued by chief minister Edappadi K.Palaniswamy who went on to announce Rs 50 lakh, on behalf of the state government, for Sivalingam's achievement. Meanwhile, weightlifter P. Gururaja on Day 1 won silver in the 56 kg category.

"I was in so much pain that even sitting was very painful for me".

Sivalingam, an Indian Railways employee from Vellore in Tamil Nadu, helped continue the trend as the country woke up to the news of a gold medal for the third straight day of the ongoing multi-sport spectacle in Australia. Everyone took care of me, gave me hope but I was not very confident.

"I didn't want to touch that level because I still need to undergo rehabilitation. I just hope that we get a physio with us at the Asian Games". "I hope to do even better in the Asian Games because there is a gap now. But this time I have got time to prepare and be fully fit now", he said.
