Team Nigeria failed on her first shot at a medal at the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

Monica Uweh in the (48kg) Women's weightlifting event failed to make podium finish where India's Chanu Saikhom Mirabai won gold, setting a new Commonwealth Games record in the process - 196kg.

"I came here with the ambition of breaking my own record and I am glad I made it happen,” Mirabai said after her victory on Thursday.

It is expected that Team Nigeria will shake off this early disappointment to begin raking in the medals.
