Gold Coast: Vikas Thakur added a shade of bronze to Indian weightlifters' golden run at the Commonwealth Games, claiming the third position in the 94kg category by equalling his personal best here on Sunday.

Vikas lifted a total of 351kg (159kg+192kg) on a day when Papua New Guinea's Steven Kari broke the Games record in clean and jerk for a total lift of 370kg (154kg+216kg).

The silver went to Canada's Boady Santavy, who lifted 369kg (168kg+201kg). His snatch effort was a new Games record.

For Vikas, the medal was a climbdown from the 2014 edition where he had claimed a silver with a lesser lift of 333kg.

India have won five weightlifting gold medals so far besides a silver and two bronze.
