Women's weightlifting

Yes, I went to see weightlifting.
It would not have been my first choice of events, but it was a fun one. Especially since I got to see India win two gold medals and break Commonwealth Games records, and I got to enjoy it all with good company.

Here is the barbell, waiting for the action.

Here are the athlete's waiting for their turn.

And here is the new gold medalist, showing us how strong she is.

She wasn't the only one, though, who could lift me and my entire airline luggage weight allotment over her head, though.
Those were some buff women.

I also liked the five-man-barbell pit crew. They were very enthusiastic about their job.
