Men's weightlifting

In the men's competition, I watched the Indian weightlifting champion get a gold medal and a new CWG record. That was pretty fun to see.

Here's our view of the stadium. We had pretty good seats. But we were in the midst of some hard-core fans and had to behave (at least, I had to behave).

I love how he breaks out into a grin as he's standing there holding 175 kg over his head.
Nice.

The classic medal winner's pose: kissing the gold.

And my favorite of the day: this picture taken during the Indian national anthem with a close up of the winner's face on the big screen. What a cool moment.
What a fun day.
