Glasgow - Nigeria's Olauwatoyin Adesanmi won the Commonwealth Games women's 63kg weightlifting gold medal on Sunday.
The African championship silver medallist pushed Commonwealth number one and compatriot Obioma Okoli into the silver position.
"I respect her so much, but she was carrying an injury," said Adesanmi who had finished on a total of 207kg at the Clyde Auditorium, the same as Okoli.
Okoli had needed to lift 123kg in the final clean and jerk -- 6kg more than her previous successful attempt -- to overtake Adesanmi but failure to do so left her with silver, as she weighed 0.99kg more than her 22-year-old teammate.
India's Punam Yadav, the youngest lifter at 19, took bronze with 202kg but admitted it had been a struggle to even make it to Glasgow.
"My father has a small farm and we were very short of money for competing at the Games. My uncle has funded my whole Commonwealth Games trip and both of my sisters are weightlifters," said the teenager.
