  • Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018: Indian athletes win three golds, one silver and one bronze medal; two athletes disqualified for violating 'No Needle Policy'

Gold Coast: Indian wrestler Sumit Malik claimed the gold medal in the men's freestyle 125 kg after his opponent Nigeria's Sinivie Boltic was ruled out of the final due to an injury at the 21st Commonwealth Games, in Gold Coast on Saturday.

Isaac Makwala guided Botswana to the men's 4x400m relay gold with a sublime anchor leg.

Both their inability to convert PCs and their porous defence - despite having the services of PR Sreejesh in goal for the first time in a major event in about a year - were a cause of concern for coach Sjoerd Marijne.

This is her first Commonwealth Games medal and India 18th gold at the ongoing Games.

Except the last few punches that she received, Mary Kom remained on top throughout to get the yellow metal. His effort of 86.47 meters makes him the first Indian to win a CWG Gold Medal in the javelin throw. They will face Australia in Sunday's gold-medal showpiece.

"Any inclusion of basketball is great for us because the sport hasn't been at the Games in any format since 2006", she said. "We are so disappointed, we did not expect this will be the result of this tour", Manpreet said. Nigeria were second with Botswana claiming bronze.

Giving a taste of her bond with her mentor, she added, "He actually said it 3 days back".

Indian athletes clinched as many as eight gold medals on the penultimate day of the 21 Commonwealth Games (CWG) being held in Gold Coast in Australia.

"I am so disappointed, I should have won a gold medal and I have to settle for a bronze".

Boxer Gaurav Solanki won gold in men's 52kg category on Saturday.

The men had seen England's women thrash India 6-0 in their own bronze medal match earlier in the day, but this contest was a much closer affair as Robert Crutchley's side took it 2-1.

"I'm just lucky that I've had the chance to play at these Games and no-one will be cheering louder for the English team than me".

"We need to improve on many things, such as taking every chance, because every match we had chances in the first two minutes, but we always missed".
