The Indians were not much of a force on the cycling track either, finishing sixth in the Women's Team Sprint, which ruled them out of medal contention.

"I am in the shape of my life and am gutted to miss out on the opportunity to show what I can do", Proud said.

If Australia is to win this year's games, winning performances will be required from athletes in a number of different events. "I thought that was going to stand for a long time ... just a bit gobsmacked really".

Not only did they set a world record, they also thrashed England by more than five seconds in the final.

"I did everything I possibly could, I left no stone unturned in order to come out here and race for Australia", she insisted. Azhar, who had emerged champion at the Commonwealth Championships past year, bettered the previous Games record by one kilogram. The gold medal went to Izahar Ahmad of Malaysia who lifted a total weight of 261kg.
