CWG 2018: Gold Rush As India Wins 4 Medals On Day 10

As the ninth day of Gold Coast Commonwealth Games drew to a close, India had managed to bag three gold medals, besides registering a series of second and third place finishes.

While in the Men's 25m Rapid Fire Pistol it was Sergei Evglevski claiming the Silver. Mary Kom showed full-patience and calmness in the first round and waited for opportunities, and when she got opportunities she roasted well with her punch. This exact name - "Mery" Kom, is there on her passport also, according to the Boxing Federation of India (BFI).

The Haryana boy shot down the CWG record in the final with a score of 30 including four series of 5 each.

Flamboyant Australian Aaron Wilson did his best Cristiano Ronaldo impression by tearing his shirt off after winning Commonwealth Games gold - in the genteel sport of lawn bowls.

"I am so glad to have made history again, it is a special feeling to win something that is a milestone medal".


The Indian came up with a series of awe-inspiring performances over the course of his campaign to win all his bouts by technical superiority and win his first major worldwide tournament in style.

Hello and welcome to the live commentary from the Day 10 of the Commonwealth Games 2018 from Gold Coast.

Somveer lost by technical superiority as his opponent built up a 10-0 lead in the first round of their quarter-final bout. Needing to throw a mark of 78m to automatically qualify for the final, the 20-year-old threw 80.42m on his very first attempt. Chopra's chances in the final were greatly boosted after World Champion and Olympic silver medallist Julius Yego crashed out in the qualifying stage itself.

Two Indian athletes were banned from the Commonwealth Games on Friday and ordered to leave Australia "on the first flight available" after needles were discovered in their room at the athletes village.
