GOLD COAST: Weightlifter Muhammad Fazrul Azrie Mohdad lifted a personal best of 328kg to win bronze in the men's below 85kg category.

The 22-year-old athlete from Johor lifted 145kg in the snatch and 183kg in the clean and jerk to improve his personal best by 2kg at the Carrara Sports and Leisure Centre today.

India's Rahul Ragala won the gold with 338kg while Don Opeloge of Samoa bagged the silver with a total of 331kg.

Fazrul said he never expected to win a medal as this was his first Commonwealth Games.

"I am delighted to do a personal best and returning home with a medal," said Fazrul.
