Chika Amalaha has won Nigeria’s first gold medal on Day Two at the ongoing Commonwealth Games, after winning the 53kg category of the women’s weightlifting event in Glasgow.



The 16-year old first lifted 85kg in the Snatch to set a new Games record, minutes after Indian duo Santoshi Matsa and Swati Singh had set a new mark by lifting 83kg.

Amalaha went on to lift 111kg in the clean and jerk to win gold with a new Games record total of 196kg while Dika Toua also lifted 111kg in the clean and jerk to claim silver with a 193kg total.

India’s Santoshi Matsa settled for bronze, lifting 105kg in the clean and jerk to finish with a total of 188kg while compatriot Swati Singh could only manage to lift 100kg in the clean and jerk to finish fourth.

Amalaha’s win gives Team Nigeria a second medal at the Games, following Nkechi Opara’s bronze medal on Day One in the 48kg category of the women’s weightlifting event.
