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

England claimed gold medals in the men's and women's 4x100-metre relays on Saturday at the 2018 Commonwealth Games as the athletics program came to a close on Australia's Gold Coast.

Actress Priyanka Chopra, who is now shooting for her American TV show, Quantico, in Ireland, took to social media to congratulate boxer Mary Kom on winning gold in her maiden Commonwealth Games appearance.

India secured their first boxing medal in the ongoing 21st edition of the Commonwealth Games, with Naman Tanwar settling for bronze in the men's 91kg category here at the Oxenford Studios on Friday.

In wrestling, India picked up another four medals on day three of the competition. "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".


The five-time Asian champion has claimed three gold medals in the last five months, starting with the Asian Championships in Vietnam. "I could not get what I expected of myself", she told PTI, wiping away her tears. The heartbreak of missing the gold left her in tears during the medal ceremony.

Jamaica were beaten to gold by England in the women's 4x100m, and their men had to settle for third behind South Africa in a race also won by the hosts of the next Games in Birmingham.

Hinch and her team-mates, who had lost 2-1 to India in the group stage, had won silver at the previous Games in Glasgow in 2014. "I thought it was 50-50 bout", Amit said after his loss.

Indian wrestler Bajrang Punia entered final of men's 65 kg category at 21st Commonwealth Games today. Amit, who was chasing his third successive global gold, was beaten by England's European silver-medallist Galal Yafai.

"We just went out there determined to enjoy the experience of being in a major global final, I just didn't want it to end". Lake missed at 1.95 m and had two tries at 1.97 but missed both.
