Canadian women win team gymnastics gold at Commonwealth Games

Taylor Ruck

The girl from Manipuri also broke Commonwealth Games record by lifting 84kgs in snatch in this category.

In boxing action, Amit outplayed Tetteh Sulemanu of Ghana 5-0 in the men's light flyweight (49 kilogram), while Naman thrashed Tanzania's Haruna Mhando 5-0 in Heavyweight (91 kg) division in Round-of-16 actions at Oxenford Studios arena here.

India now has four gold medals, silver and a bronze in the event, leaving them fourth on the overall tally.

To add to the woes, the basketball teams stared at an exit following successive defeats, while swimmers, cyclists and gymnasts remained far away from the prospective medal-winning situations. While Aruna totalled 44.400 after her four rotations, Pranati's final score was 43.900 at the end of her four rotations.

Saturday was an encouraging day for Kenya in the pool at the Commonwealth Games here as Eunice Mbugua put up a good fight but lost her fifth round match to bid goodbye to the lawn bowls competition.
