Shreyasi claims gold; easy wins for Indian shuttlers

Harmanpreet Singh scored two penalty corners as Indian men’s hockey team booked a semi-final spot with the win against Malaysia in the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast

The medal count for Indian wrestlers in Commonwealth Games 2018 witnesses a continuous rise with Kiran winning a bronze medal in women's freestyle 76 kg category. Australia's Daniel Repacholi won gold in the event with a final score of 227.2, a Games record while Bangladesh's Shakil Ahmed bagged silver with 220.5.

Rahul Aware absolutely crushed the challenge of Canadian rival by securing back to back technical points in the bout.

Mittal, who picked silver medal in the World Championships in Moscow a year ago besides bagging a silver and gold in the ISSF World Cups, had earlier finished fifth with a score of 133 in the qualifying to make it to the finals.

23-year-old Mitharval, participating in his first Commonwealth Games, had also finished first in the qualification round of the 10m air pistol event after shooting 584 points to equal the Commonwealth Games record, which was previously held exclusively by India's Samaresh Jung. He had won gold in the now disbanded 66kg category at the 2010 edition in New Delhi before winning the 74kg title at the 2014 CWG in Glasgow, Scotland.

However, Babita settled for silver after being outmanuevered by Canada's Diana Weicker in the summit clash.

"I have been waiting for this medal for the last 10 years".

He continued his dazzling form as he wrapped up a quick win against Evans to assure the Indian contingent of its second medal in wrestling at the 2018 CWG. But that was a different event, and this is a different event and I am sure they will also come into the match with a winning mindset.

Babita Phogat needed a little less than two minutes to beat Sri Lanka's Deepika Dilhani in her second bout in the women's 53kg Nordic style wrestling. I should have been more aggressive, but I gave my 100 per cent. This was her third attempt to win a Gold Medal and she successfully managed to do the same as she edged Australia's Emma Cox. "Injury is a player's ornament, we have to live with it". She then played the bronze medal bout via the repechage route. The Indian wrestler outclassed Botha in the first round 10-0 and was awarded the victory on his technical superiority over his opponent.
