Commonwealth Games: D'Tigers lose third consecutive game

Commonwealth Games: D'Tigers lose third consecutive game

Meanwhile, debutant Manish Kaushik (60kg) and Gaurav Solanki (52kg) won their respective round of 16 boxing matches to reach quarter-finals.

Table tennis was first introduced in the Commonwealth Games in 2002. During her school and college days, the west Delhi girl did modelling as well, something she later gave up to concentrate on table tennis. So far, they have won 19 medals - 10 of them being gold. She took up the sport at four after watching her two elder siblings play the game. Her fellow countrywoman, Heena Sidu joined Bhaker on the podium with a Silver medal. 17-year-old Satwiksairaj Rankireddy combined with the 2010 women's doubles gold medallist Ashwini Ponnappa to clinch an unexpected win over the Rio silver medallists Chan Peng Soon & Goh Liu Ying in a thrilling three-game duel, that set the tone for the rest of the tie. However, the last attempt of both of them 191 kg failed. Mehuli also shot a Games record score (247.2) in the process but missed out on Gold in a shoot-off with Singapore's Martina Lindsay Veloso.

While he had done well at the national level, setting records and winning titles at the junior and youth categories, success in the senior global circuit was harder, especially with him having to compete with weightlifters like Vikas Thakur (who moved from the 85kg category to the 94kg division), who moved up from a lower weight division.

While Jitu Rai clinched a gold, Om Prakash Mitharval bagged a bronze in the men's 10m air pistol event. "To swim in a final like this, being my first time competing at this level, it was great learning experience", said Bastian after his event.




Apart from the medals, there were several other good results worth celebrating, a prominent one being Anas advancing to the 400m men's final after clocking 45.44sec in the semi-finals. He performed the best by lifting 159 in the snatch.

2014 CWG Bronze medallist in the Women's 63kg Weightlifting event, Punam Yadav went up six kilograms in weight to the 69kg category. India's unprecedented effort at the Gold Coast Games is also a fair reflection of the sport's fast improving standard.

The Indian men's Table Tennis team assured of at least a silver medal after beating Singapore to qualify for the final of the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Monday.

The second match followed a similar pattern to the first, as Sathiyan Gnanasekaran lost the opening game against Segun Toriola, only to win the next three.
