CWG Day 10: Mary Kom on the cusp of gold

CWG Day 10: Mary Kom on the cusp of gold

Kristina O'Hara is beaten on a unanimous points decision by the legendary Mary Kom in 45 to 48 kg category.

Mary Kom became a member of the Rajya Sabha in 2016.

Mary Kom struck her at will, her right hooks being especially telling. More aggressive in the second round, Mary displayed good defence against a taller opponent who tried to use her reach to unsettle the Indian. She used pressure from her footwork and utilised it over Christiana. On Saturday, India opened its box with Kom and added the 18th gold medal, while more medals are being awaited with interesting events lined up for the day.

Two Indian athletes were banned from the Commonwealth Games on Friday and ordered to leave Australia "on the first flight available" after needles were discovered in their room at the athletes village. Everyone knows that Mary Com has entered the Commonwealth Games for the first time.

Seems like no stopping India in the ongoing commonwelath games.

Table Tennis: Paddler Sharath Kamal will play both the men's singles and mixed doubles quarter-finals, as he aims to make it a memorable Gold Coast campaign, after winning men's team gold. Bajrang won the gold medal in the 65kg category, while Mausam Khatri (97kg) and Pooja Dhanda (57kg) won a silver each and Divya Kakran (68kg) bagged a bronze medal. She followed that up with a gold at the 2002 World Championship gold in Antalya, Turkey and that was the first of five successive that she won at the Worlds.
