He shifted to weightlifting from wrestling after watching Sushil Kumar win gold in the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Just like Sushil, he wanted to win a gold medal in the Commonwealth Games and repeat the performance in the Olympics. Though his hopes fell short at Gold Coast on Thursday, Gururaja managed to get India’s medal hunt off to a good start in the 2018 Commonwealth Games with a silver medal in the men’s 56kg on the opening day of competitions here.
