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.

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.
