Record- breaking Mirabai Chanu claims the India's first gold at CWG. 


Mirabai Chanu bossed the 49 kg field as anticipated to defend her Commonwealth Games title and give India the first gold order of the Birmingham edition then on Saturday. 

The Olympic tableware quarterfinalist added up a aggregate of 201 kg( 88 kg 113 kg) to stamp her authority in the competition and achieve a Commonwealth Games record in the process.

The atmosphere at the NEC arena was electric, pushing the athletes to give their stylish with the music keeping the suckers entertained. 

As the MC also refocused out, with Chanu head and shoulders above others, the spin was further about contending with herself than her opponents. 

Chanu's first attempt by catch was comfortable before she lifted 88 kg in the alternate before leaving 90 kg for the third and final attempt. She wasn't suitable to record a new particular stylish but still went into the clean and haul with a 12 kg advantage over Ranaivosoa. 

The clean and haul began on a rather dramatic fashion with Bangladesh's Marija Akhter falling on the bottom after a failed attempt for 70 kg. 

With her nearest rivals trying 15kgs lower than Chanu, the result was a forthcoming conclusion. 

The battle for tableware and citation went down to the line with Kingsley, Kaminski and Ranaivosa battling it out. 

It was a heartbreaking end for the Nigerian lifter Kingsley whose 98 kg attempt was declared as a no lift following a unseasonable festivity. 

Chanu lifted 109 kg comfortably in her first attempt before going for 113 kg in the alternate. 

She didn't risk matching her world record of 119 kg and went for 115 kg in her final lift, but missed.
