Weightlifter P Gururaja on Thursday knocked off India's medal tally at Commonwealth Games 2018, winning silver, in the 56kg category.

After lifting his best weight of 111kg in the snatch, Gururaja added 138kg in his third attempt in the clean and jerk to end with a total lift of 249kg.

This feat is also his personal best.

In 2017, Gururaja had claimed a Commonwealth Championships bronze in Australia.

Meanwhile, on Day 1 of the event, India also defeated Sri Lanka by 3-0 in the badminton mixed-team championship.
