India woke up to the news of another weightlifting gold medal Friday, February 6 after Sanjita Chanu finished on the top step of the podium in the women's 53kg category.

The Manipuri weightlifter had won her second Commonwealth Games gold, beating 53kg favorite and 2014 Glasgow Games gold medalist Dika Toua of Papua New Guinea in the final.

Soon after, India's 18-year-old Commonwealth Games debutant Deepak Lather won a bronze medal in the 69kg category.

The two medals took India to the fifth spot (as on 6pm IST, Friday) as the Asian giants finished the day with four medals, all of them coming from weightlifters.

Meanwhile, India women's hockey team came back from their opening day's loss to defeat to thrash Malaysia 4-1 in a Group A match Friday.

In squash, 2014 Asian Games individual medalist Dipika Pallikal lost her women's singles R16 match while Joshna Chinappa progressed to the quarter-final.

There was good news for boxing fans as Amit Phangal and Naman Tanwar eased into the quarter-final stage.
