Gold Coast: India’s medal tally at the ongoing Commonwealth Games was extended to four on Friday as weightlifter Deepak Lather bagged bronze at the men’s 69kg category.

The Haryana lad finished with a combined effort of 295kg (136 in snatch and 159 in clean & jerk) to stand behind Gareth Evans of Wales and Indika Dissanayake of Sri Lanka.

In the process, Deepak also became the youngest male weightlifter to win a Commonwealth Games medal.
