CWG 2018: Gold rush for India on penultimate day

2018 Commonwealth Games: 'Ronaldo' spotted on bowling green

Two decades later, 15-year-old Anish Bhanwala on Friday became the youngest Indian to win a gold for India at the Commonwealth Games.

Nigerian wrestlers at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games so far have a total of six medals; two gold, one silver and three bronze.

The 22-year-old Kaushik hails from Devsar in Bhiwani district of Haryana and won a gold medal in the light weight division at the 2017 national championships, where he defeated the highly rated Shiva Thapa.

The Indian duo defeated their opponents 11-5, 11-6, 12-10.

In the evening session, Vikas, a former Asian Games gold-medallist and world bronze-medallist, pummelled Cameroon's Dieudonne Wilfried Ntsengue to claim the third gold for India. This is the team's second loss in a row after they suffered a harrowing 3-2 defeat at the hands of New Zealand yesterday in the semifinal. India were given another penalty corner but the England defence was solid. "I was hoping to come here and fight in the finals to get the silver or the gold, but I just wanted to get through my first match".

Grappler strikes gold in 65kg event, Khatri, Pooja claim silver each; Divya bags bronze.

It is now third straight time that Indian women's hockey team will return empty-handed from the Games as the last time it stood on podium was in 2006 when it won a silver. The domination contiuned in the semi-finals where Bajrang pulled off a series of two-point moves against Vincent De Marinis of Canada to take a 8-0 lead in the first round.

Kidambi Srikanth who rose to World No.1 in the world Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings on Thursday, proceeded to the semi-final at the Gold Coast village, after beating Zin Rei Ryan NG of Singapore.

Ashwini Ponnappa and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy also enjoyed strong performances to advance to the semi-finals in both the doubles categories. Chopra hurled the javelin to a distance of 80.42 metres to take the second place in Group A of the qualification round.
