Saraswati Rout will be seen representing India in the Women's 58Kg category.

Weightlifting has brought India joy in the Commonwealth Games so far. India won medals in 4 out of 5 weightlifting competitions so far. Mirabai Chanu and Sanjita Chanu brought Gold on Day 1 & Day 2. Guru Raja won Silver on the first day as well and Deepak Lather won Bronze in his weight category.
In what will be the third weightlifting event of Day 2, sixth overall, India will once again bid for glory. Saraswati Rout is representing the nation in the weight category. The 22-year-old weightlifter hails from Odisha and has previously won Gold in the South Asian games.

India's only medals in the competition have come through weightlifting and Saraswati Rout will be looking to continue the good streak. The Indian lifters were left without physios and masseuse for the competition because of a technical mistake and yet they continue to make the nation proud in Gold Coast.
