CWG: India's men's hockey team loses to New Zealand in semis

India continued its unbelievable run in Commonwealth Games 2018 on day 9. Meanwhile, the trio of Naman Tanwar (91kg), Manoj Kumar (69kg) and Mohammed Husammuddin (56kg) had to setlle for a bronze.

The Day 9 of Commonwealth Games saw wrestlers and shooters bagging most of the honours while there was one medal in boxing too.

Earlier, Pooja reached the gold medal match after beating Joseph Essombe Tiako of Cameeron 11-5 (3-1 in classification points) in the semi-finals.

Punia came up with a best effort of 60.41m to win her fourth successive CWG medal while Dhillon clinched her maiden medal with a throw of 57.43m.

Defending champion Sushil (74kg) barely spent any time on the mat, his final against South African Johannes Botha lasted just a minute and 20 seconds as he picked up easy victories to claim his third successive gold at the Games, a love affair that began in 2010 Delhi edition.

"This gold medal proves the significant improvement in my wrestling career as I won silver at the last Commonwealth Games". Punia seized the gold medal before the end of the first round. "This year he has been coaching in India and I will be training in Germany in three months", he added. The Commonwealth Games 2018 is taking place at Gold Coast, Australia.

"As we have said previously, the Commonwealth Games takes a no tolerance approach to these matters".

This medal takes India's Gold Medal tally to 17.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the duo Quadri and Abiodun were part of Nigeria's male table tennis team that won the country's first medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on Monday. Anish achieved the feat when he stormed his way into the gold medal with a Games record in the men's 25m rapid fire pistol event at the Belmont Shooting Centre.

In women's 50 metre rifle prone, Tejaswini Sawant won a silver after finishing behind Singapore's Martina Lindsay Veloso. A veteran and a legend rolled into one, Sushil became the first Indian to win three Commonwealth Games gold, while Aware, who has spent nearly the whole of the last decade in obscurity despite five National championship titles, were the toast of the Indian contingent yesterday.

He is also a victor of a gold medal in 65kg freestyle wrestling at the Asian Wrestling Championship in New Delhi, last year.
