"Being a sports minister and minister in-charge of Udupi district, I am very happy that the one of our boys has won the first medal at the Commonwealth Games", said Pramod Madhwaraj, Minister of Youth Fisheries and Sport for Karnataka, speaking to TNM.

Pearson's injury may be the reason why she was not chosen to be Australia's flagbearer at Wednesday's opening ceremony.

"I think that's important to realise". Marc Austin of Scotland took the bronze.

She was later in action against Pakistan as well and was her usual clinical self against Mahoor Shahzad, claiming a straight-game triumph in 26 minutes to ensure that India had a winning day to celebrate.

Home favorite Blair Evans clinched the bronze medal with a time of 4 minutes and 38.23 seconds. Alistair, who had surgery on his hip last August, placed 10th in an afternoon race hit by rain.

Mauritian teenager Marie Hanitra Roilya Ranaivosoa finished a distant second with a total of 170kg, while Sri Lanka's Dinusha Gomes came third with 155kg.

Chanu smashed the CWG record with every lift and even broke her personal record and remained in a league of her own.

With Australia having won most editions of the sporting event, it is not unlikely that the team will perform well at the competition.

Australian team is all smiles as they beat world record in 4,000m set up by Great Britain in Rio.

The New Zealand womens 4000m pursuit team win Commonwealth Games silver. In addition, India's Srikanth registered a second win in the men's singles match.

Pearson running was tipped to be the Gold Coast Games" "Cathy Freeman moment' - a nod to the Australia legend's success after being our most-talked about athlete at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.

"I am in the shape of my life and am gutted to miss out on the opportunity to show what I can do", said Proud, who lost an appeal against the disqualification. It was the only truck that his father owned and the accident took away the only source of income for the family in 2010.
