Sukhen Dey wins India's 2nd gold in CWG 2014

India's Sukhen Dey has won the gold medal with a splendid lift in the clean and jerk. His compatriot Ganesh Mali took the bronze. Dey comfortably lifted 139 kg in his second attempt even as the other weightlifters made heavy weather of it. Dey, who won a silver behind Hamizan Aminul Ibrahim in the New Delhi Commonwealth Games four years ago with a total of 252 kg, ended up here with a total weight of 248 kg, leaving Malaysia's ZMD Pisol with the silver and teammate Mali with the bronze with a total weight of 244.
