Sport Current Affairs April 1st Week 2018

 1. Indian women hockey team won aganist Malaysia in GoldCoastCommonwealthGames.

Defender Gurjit Kaur struck twice as the Indian women`s hockey team brought its Commonwealth Games campaign back on track with a 4-1 thrashing of Malaysia in its second pool A match on Friday.

Kaur`s two penalty corner conversions (6th and 39th minutes), out of the three chances she got, along with skipper Rani Pampal and Lalremsiami`s field goals in the 56th and 59th minute respectively helped India post a comprehensive victory and recover from the shock of their opening 2-3 loss to lower-ranked Wales.

Malaysia`s lone goal, in the 38th minute, also came from a defender`s stick with Nuraini Rashid converting a penalty corner chance.

 The Indian team, which finished fifth in the last two editions of the Games, will play England on 8 April next.


2. Deepak Lather Becomes Youngest Weightlifter To Win Medal.

Teenager Deepak Lather on Friday became the youngest Indian weightlifter to claim a Commonwealth Games medal, clinching a bronze in the men’s 69kg category here.

The 18-year-old from Haryana lifted a total of 295kg (136kg+159kg) to finish third after his nearest rival, Vaipava Loane, fouled his last two lifts to end with a total of 292kg.

The youngster, competing in his maiden Commonwealth Games, holds the distinction of being the youngest to hold the national record as well.

He held the 62kg category national record at 15.

He trained at the Army Sports Institute as a diver before being pushed into weightlifting by the coaches there.

Earlier, Mirabai Chanu (48kg) and Sanjita Chanu (53kg) won gold medals in the women’s competition and P Gururaja claimed a silver in the men’s 56kg category.

 The Indian weightlifters have so far claimed four medals in the event.
