Commonwealth Games 2022: Weightlifter Poonam Yadav could not get India a medal on the fifth day
India did not have a good start on Tuesday, the fifth day of the Commonwealth Games 2022. Weightlifter Poonam Yadav failed to get India a medal in the women's 76 kg weight category.
2018 Commonwealth Games gold medalist Poonam Yadav lifted 98 kg in the snatch in the final but could not lift 116 kg even once in three clean and jerk attempts. The countrymen were again hoping for a gold medal from weightlifter Poonam Yadav, but she disappointed everyone with her performance.
However, good news has come for India in the long jump event. The news is that India's M Sreeshankar has made it to the final of the long jump event. M Sreeshankar had jumped 8.05m in the qualifying round. On the other hand, the Indian women's team started well against New Zealand in Round 1 of the Lawn Balls pair event.
