The sixth day of the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham will begin on August 3. India enters Day 6 in Birmingham 2022 with high expectations after a record-breaking Day 5.
On August 2 in the Commonwealth Games
- Heavyweight lifter Vikas Thakur won silver in the men’s 96kg weightlifting event, giving him a total of four medals. In total, he lifted 346 kg (155 kg + 91 kg), which was good for second place and his third medal at the CWG after three editions.
- The Indian lawn bowls team won a historic gold medal. In the women’s fours championship, Lovely Choubey (lead), Pinki (second), Nayanmoni Saikia (third), and Rupa Rani Tirkey (slip) of India defeated South Africa 17-10. After a competitive match against Singapore, India defeated them 3-1 to reclaim the badminton men’s team gold.
The Day 6 will majorly focus on the weightlifting contingent. Three weightlifters from India will get to fight for medals on the day. Other than the lifters, athletics will see Manpreet Kaur and perhaps Tejaswin Shankar try their lucks in their respective finals. Sourav Ghosal looks to be another individual who’s guaranteed to play a medal match as it looks in the schedule for Day 6 of the Commonwealth Games 2022.
At 2:00 pm in the men’s 109 kg division, Lovpreet Singh will launch India’s bid for another medal in weightlifting. Purnima Pandey & Gurdeep Singh will compete for victory in the Women’s 87kg & Men’s 109+kg events at 6:30 PM & 11 PM, respectively. On Day 6, Indian athletes will also compete in the women’s shot put final, lawn bowls, and squash.
