Nigeria suffered another defeat in the men's boxing event as Osita Umeh was outclassed by India's Manoj Kumar in the welterweight class (69kg) at this year's Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia on Thursday.

Gururaja who hails from Udupi in Karnataka is the son of a truck driver and is employed with the Indian Air Force. Gururaja failed to lift the 138 kg in his first attempt, while his second attempt was cancelled by the judges.

Weightlifting was not the only reason why India could boast of a good opening day.

Rakesh Patra also qualified for the Rings final to be held on April 8.

Pearson, who won gold at the London Olympics, said she knew she would not compete for two days but had delayed the announcement to play a part in the opening ceremony at Carrara Stadium on Wednesday where she was last baton-bearer in the relay. "My coach said 'the atmosphere out there is electric, go out, soak it up.' I think that is what we have done".

"I guess you could call it grief".




The men's team blanked Trinidad and Tobago 3-0 before beating Northern Ireland by a similar margin.

It was in the 57th minute that Wales attacked the Indian defense on the counter and with India's Goalkeeper Savita failing to clear the ball, Natasha Marke-Jones sliced the ball in the back of the net to hand her team an important 3-2 victory over India.

The Australians also triumphed in the women's team pursuit and women's team sprint - each time over New Zealand - to carry home three of the four golds up for grabs on the first day of cycling action on the track.

Amalraj Anthony opened India's win with a 4-1 (11-5, 3-11, 11-2, 14-12) win over Dexter St. Louis before G. Sathiyan doubled the lead with a 3-0 (11-5, 11-5, 11-4) thrashing of Aaron Wilson.

In the swimming pool, Virdhawal Khade qualified for the semifinals of the 50m men's butterfly event but could not make the final, finishing 15th overall.
