New Delhi: Day 7 of the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow is upon us. After a stunning show on Day 6, the Indian contingent will look to move up the medals table with a strong push today.
Yesterday, two-time Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar spearheaded a sparkling show as Indian grapplers dominated the wrestling arena with three gold medals after the shooters ended their campaign on a rousing note with five more podium finishes on sixth day of competitions in the 20th Commonwealth Games.
With 10 medals, including three gold, this was India's best show in this edition of the mega-event.
Earlier, Indian shooters continued to dominate the Barry Buddon Centre with the unassuming Sanjeev Rajput and Harpreet Singh clinching a silver medal each but there was heartbreak for Olympic silver winner Vijay Kumar.
Star marksman Gagan Narang had to be contend with a bronze while Manavjit Singh Sandhu and Lajja Gauswami, too, finished third on the podium, as the Indian shooting team finished with an impressive tally of 17 medals (4 9 4) from the Games.
India's medals tally went up to 36 with 10 gold, 15 silver and 11 bronze, but they slipped a place to sixth after having regained the fifth position.
With four wrestling events on Day 7, India will again look to dominate on the mat. S. Kadian, B Bajrang, L Lalita and S. Malik will all feature in their respective weight categories for India today.
Men's boxing event will see all of India`s best boxer enter the ring in their quarter-final bouts. Vijender Singh, Devendro Laishram, Manpreet Jangra, and Amitpreet Singh will be looking to advance to the semi-finals in their weigh categories.
