India Hopes To Get Medal In Boxing And Free-Style Wrestling

205

New Delhi: India will be looking to add more medals to its tally on day 10 of the 2018 Commonwealth Games with boxer Manoj Kumar in the 69 kg group and BajrangPunia in 65kg free-style wrestling. These two will be the key individuals on whom India’s medal hopes rest. The Indian men’s hockey team will also be determined to give the country more reasons to smile.
Meanwhile two Indians have been banned from the 2018 Commonwealth Games and have been asked to return home as they have breached the anti-syringe policy.Manoj Kumar is assured of a medal in boxing but he will be determined to avoid a bronze and at least secure a silver or gold in boxing. Indian men’s hockey team will take on New Zealand in the semi-final and a win will give them a shot at gold. BajrangPunia is India’s best bet in wrestling. India are currently third in the medal’s tally behind Australia and England.

TejaswiniSawant on Thursday showed that there is still a lot left in her as she bagged silver in 50m prone, finishing with a score of 618.9. Singapore’s Martina Lindsay Veloso, who won the 10m air rifle gold two days back, bagged her second gold here with a Games record of 621, while Scotland’s Seonaid McIntosh finishing third with a total of 618.1. AnjumMoudgil was 16 with a score of 602.2.
This was Tejaswini’s sixth CWG medal, making her one of the most successful Indian woman shooters in the quadrennial games. Apart from the two gold in Melbourne 2006, she has two silver in 50m prone and 3-position pairs event in 2010, and a bronze in the 50m prone pairs.
Incidentally, this was the second medal in 50m prone at the Commonwealth Games after RoopaUnnikrishnan won it at the 1998 Kuala Lumpur Games.
Tejaswini took India’s medals tally in shooting to 12 — four gold, three silver and five bronze.
She started with a score of 102.1 in the first series and continued to improve, regularly exceeding her first-round score. She made a strong charge with scores of 103.7 and 104.6, which helped her into the medals bracket. Despite the windy conditions, Tejaswani did not lose concentration and continued to shoot well.

“I’m aiming for the Olympic Games in Tokyo (2020), but next up is the Asian Games and then the World Championships in Korea (August-September 2018),” said Tejaswini.
