It was, however, Steven Kari from Papua New Guinea who stole the show with his combined lift of 370kg, including a final successful 216kg lift in clean and jerk to pip Santavy to the title. The 16-year old from Haryana put up a tremendous performance to upstage more seasoned shooters as she shot a 240.9, a Commonwealth Games record.

That being said, this is the first Gold for India's Women's Team in Table Tennis at the Commonwealth Games.

For Thakur, the medal was a climbdown from the 2014 edition where he had claimed a silver with a lesser lift of 333kg. This is the first ever GOLD medal for Indian's women's team.

Earlier, Mirabai Chanu (48kg), Sanjita Chanu (53kg), Sathish Sivalingam (77kg) and Venkat Rahul Ragala (85kg) had claimed gold medals in the ongoing edition.

Indian women's table tennis on Sunday created history at the Commonwealth Games following a 3-1 victory against Singapore in the gold medal tie. India now have won 12 medals so far, including seven gold, two silver and three bronze. Punam started slowly, lifting 95 kg in her opening attempt. He had lifted 151 kg in snatch and 187 kg in clean & jerk. However, Vaivai registered 97 kg to take the lead after the completion of the opening attempts. Punam lifted 98 kg in her second attempt but Vaivai maintained the lead with 100 kg.

Once the bar is lifted overhead, the competitor must remain motionless, arms and legs extended, with the bar and body in a straight line, until the referees make a decision which automatically registers as a visual and audible signal to replace the barbell to the platform. The Indian equalled that in her third and last attempt and Vaivai's failure to lift 103 meant both lifters ended the snatch phase at the joint top spot.

Batra then proved to be too good for Yihan, who failed to read her deceptive strokes. She had won a gold in Glasgow in the 48 kg category as well.
