Indians in boxing finals, Naman settles for bronze

Indian pugilists gained three golds out of six finals on Saturday at the Commonwealth Games.

There are also the expectations that this would be the last medal for MC Mary Kom as she will be taking the retirement after the tournament.

This is the second medal for Malta at these games after the lawn bowling women's fours also secured a bronze medal.

However, the 19-year-old Naman lost to crowd favorite Jason Whateley in another exciting contest in the heavyweight 91kg category.

Speaking of her 22-year-old opponent Kristina O'Hara, who works as a carer in a nursing home, Mary Kom said she has sparred with her in the past.

Stepping onto the top podium was Anja Stridsman int he Women's 60kg division, Skye Nicolson in the Women's 57kg and possibly the standout in the team, Harry Garside who went through five opponents to claim gold. Pooja had defeated Joseph Tiako of Cameroon 11-5 in the semi-finals.

The statement said her father remained seriously ill and that Yulia was still suffering from the effects of the nerve agent. Johnson said: "There can be no doubt what was used and there remains no alternative explanation about who was responsible".

Though India had good ball possession in the initial minutes of the first quarter, England were far more dominating with intense attack, making spaces in the striking circle.

"I am so disappointed, I should have won a gold medal and I have to settle for a bronze". Yesterday, Anish trumped the men standing in his way to become India's youngest-ever gold medallist at the Commonwealth Games after Tejaswini Sawant added another yellow metal to her decorated CWG resume. Saina will now take on the victor of PV Sindhu and Michelle Li in the final.

England, meanwhile, won two penalty corners in the 50th and 54th minutes, but on both occasions different variations couldn't help in stretching their lead by two goals. Find us on Facebook too!

Wilson's celebration was not the only one that could be filed under "over-exuberant" at the Commonwealth Games on Friday.

The fast-rising trio of Amit Panghal, Gaurav Solanki and Manish Kaushik notched up contrasting victories to enter the finals but teenager Naman Tanwar settled for a bronze medal in the Commonwealth Games boxing competition here today. The men's team lost 2-1 while the women's side were trounced 6-0 in their respective bronze medal matches.
