India has won 16 silver and 18 bronze medals till now at the 21 Commonwealth Games.

She won her first medal in the Commonwealth Games for the first time by defeating Christina O Hara of England in the 45-48 kilogram weight category.

Mary defeated Kristina O'Hara of Northern Ireland by a unanimous 5:0 verdict to take the title.

Isaac Makwala guided Botswana to the men's 4x400m relay gold with a sublime anchor leg.

Everyone knows that Mary Com has entered the Commonwealth Games for the first time.

This is because needles were found in their room at the Commonwealth Games village on the Gold Coast in Australia - and there is a strict "No Needles" policy. She also became India's first woman boxer to claim a Commonwealth Games gold. The Aussie athlete would never relinquish his lead in the gold medal effort.

Here we take a look at the day's finest moments as the Games near a conclusion. "The team is also disappointed that for all the effort we put, we didn't get the result". "This is the first time I saw them making more defensive errors". Grzegorz Sych of Canada finishes second on the podium with 448.4 and Dean Bale of England bagged the bronze medal with 441.2 points. "She called me early in the morning, crying, saying victory".

It was then the turn of the women, and England were triumphant again as they won comfortably despite a brilliant late burst from Jamaica's Elaine Thompson in the inside lane.

"I'm so glad I got to enjoy the moment with mum and dad and thinking of Jamie 100 per cent", she said.

India's women's hockey team turned in an embarrassing performance in the bronze medal round against England and was thrashed 6-0.

Trans-Tasman rivalry will be to the fore with New Zealand and Australia meeting in the finals of both the men's and women's hockey and the men's heavyweight boxing.

"We need to improve on many things, such as taking every chance, because every match we had chances in the first two minutes, but we always missed".
