Commonwealth Games 2014

India is currently at 7th place in the medal tally with seven gold, 12 silver and seven bronze to be placed seventh in the standings of the Commonwealth Games which are being held in Glasgow, Scotland.

‘Pistol King’ Jitu Rai kept his reputation intact by clinching the gold medal before Gagan Narang and Gurpal Singh claimed a silver each to continue the shooters’ heroics while young Vikas Thakur overcame pain to bag silver in weightlifting on the fifth day of competitions in the 20th Commonwealth Games here on Monday.

Writhing in pain, Thakur produced the lift of his lifetime to clinch the bronze in men’s 85kg weightlifting, as Indian lifters continued their spectacular show. Thakur lifted 333kg to bag the silver while Richard Patterson of New Zealand won the gold with a total lift of 335kg. Canada’s Pascal Plamondon was third with 333kg ,but Thakur bagged the silver on lesser body weight.

Meanwhile, a dominant Indian women’s hockey team annihilated hapless Trinidad and Tobago by a whopping 14-0 margin in its third match of the Games. Star Indian boxer Vijender Singh (75kg) continued his sublime form to enter the quarterfinals along with gritty youngster L Devendro Singh (49kg), but there was heartbreak for Shiva Thapa (56kg), who went down to Olympic bronze-medallist Michael Conlan of Northern Ireland. Manoj Jhangra, too, made the quarterfinals with a convincing win.

With the addition of four more medals, India’s overall haul swelled to 26 with seven gold, 12 silver and seven bronze to be placed seventh in the standings.

In lawn bowls, Indian women won in pairs but lost their triples match. The Indian team won its first match in second round of pairs in section B, getting the better of Jersey Islands 14-12 at the Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls centre. The Indian women, however, lost their triples match in section A against Malaysia 14-16.

We wish the Indian Team all the very best for the future matches which are still yet to come.
