Let us have a brief recap of Day 2 and 3 and congratulate all those who made India proud:

Gold Medals

  • Gagan Narang and Abhinav Bindra in Shooting Pairs 10m Air Rifle Men.

Day 3: 6th October

India broke their own record from day 2 and won 6 Gold Medals, 4 Silver and 3 Bronze Medals to consolidate their position at No 2 in Medals Tally.

Gold Medals

  • Gagan Narang in Shooting Singles 10m Air Rifle Men.
  • Omkar Singh in Shooting Singles 50m Pistol Men.
  • Anisa Sayyed in Shooting Singles 25m Pistol Women.
  • Chanu Bala Renu Yumnam in Weightlifting 58kg Women.

  • Asher Noria and Ronjan Sodhi in Shooting Pairs Double Trap Men.
  • Rahi Sarnobat in Shooting Singles 25m Pistol Women.
  • Manoj Kumar in 84kg Wrestling Men

The Bronze medals also came in Shooting, Wrestling and one came historically in para-swimming thanks to Prasanta Karmakar in 50m freestyle event.

India also made good progress in Tennis, Badminton, Boxing and Archery while they struggled in Netball, Women’s Hockey and Gymnastics. The medal hopes from now on would continue to depend on Shooting, Wrestling, apart from hopes in Tennis, Badminton and Boxing.

If the Indian players perform to their potential, then there is no reason why India can’t fulfill their dream of finishing 2nd in the final Medal standings come the 14th October. Let us all hope India keeps up the good the start to the Commonwealth Games and maintain their lead at 2nd position right till the end…
