Commonwealth Games: England women beaten in basketball final

Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018: Indian athletes win three golds, one silver and one bronze medal; two athletes disqualified for violating 'No Needle Policy'

Mary Kom has become the first Indian woman who wins the gold medal in CWG 2018, Australia.

This is the first time Mary Kom participated in CWG and the fierce boxer proved her mettle once again.

On Saturday, India opened its box with Kom and added the 18th gold medal, while more medals are being awaited with interesting events lined up for the day.

The 26-year-old waved to the crowd as she departed, and her team's solid defence kept a stranglehold on England's scoring to minimise any concerns of a fightback.

"It's very hard", said Kom, reflecting on returning to the boxing ring after the birth of her youngest child.

Paramedics also treated and transported his passenger to the hospital in stable condition after she sustained an ear injury. The 19-year-old faces charges including terroristic threatening and corruption of a minor.

A win over Canada's Jessica MacDonald sealed Vinesh's win and moved her country onto five gold medals overall. The wrestling contingent signed off from the Games with 12 medals overall - five gold, three silver and four bronze. She is the only Indian boxer to medal at this edition of the Games after Pinki Rani, L Sarita Devi and Lovlina Borgohain failed to reach the medal rounds. Her brothers Jamie and Gavin Nicolson were killed in a traffic accident on the way to training in 1994, before Skye was born. The race is won by Chloe Hosking of Australia with Georgia Williams of Danielle Rowe of Wales in third and also New Zealand at second. "I was hoping to come here and fight in the finals to get the silver or the gold, but I just wanted to get through my first match". The verdict in his favour was, however, split at 4-1.

Newly-crowned World No. 1 Kidambi Srikanth also progressed to the final of the men's singles after defeating 2010 Commonwealth Games silver medallist Rajiv Ouseph of England 21-10 21-17 in little over half an hour.

Playing in front of a partisan and vociferous home crowd, Garside thrived on the energy from the crowd as he tried to tire Kaushik out in the first two round before trying to attack more in the third round. We give it to them too easily and that's been happening the whole tournament.

World champion Hellen Obiri said the plan to set a slow pace in the women's 5,000m final worked to perfection as she won the gold medal ahead of compatriot Margaret Chelimo Kipkemboi.
