Commonwealth Games 2018 Medal Count: Winners and Final Table After Day 10


Flamboyant Australian Aaron Wilson did his best Cristiano Ronaldo impression by tearing his shirt off after winning Commonwealth Games gold - in the genteel sport of lawn bowls.

For the longest time that seemed to be the case as it took Srikanth just eight minutes to go from being 0-4 down to be 10-7 ahead. In the medal tally, India is at the third spot just behind England.

Gaurav Solanki won India's first gold in the men's boxing event at this edition after an emphatic performance against Northern Ireland's Brendan Irvine in the 52 kg category as his all-out aggression proved too hot to handle for Irvine.

Three winners picked up the first gold medals for their countries in the meet - former world junior champion Neeraj Chopra of India won the javelin in 86.47 metres, Levern Spencer of St. Lucia's the women's high jump in a season-best 1.95 metres and Troy Doris of Guyana the triple jump in 16.88 metres.

Mary Kom and Gaurav Solanki gave India its first gold in women and men's boxing after they registered convincing wins in their respective finals at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast on Saturday.

Palmer, 41, came out of retirement for a second time to defend the gold he won at Glasgow 2014 with Cameron Pilley.

Two decades later, 15-year-old Anish Bhanwala on Friday became the youngest Indian to win a gold for India at the Commonwealth Games. Two gold, two silver and two bronze.

Duo Satwik Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty will be in action in the men's doubles final.

Home nation Australia completed a clean sweep of the golds in all four road cycling events on the Gold Coast. Because of this, the quartet of A Dharun, Jacob, Muhammed Anas and Rajiv Arokia could not even complete one lap during the race.

England won both the men's and women's 4×100-meter relays on the final day of track, while Botswana took the men's 4×400 and Jamaica the women's 4×400. Sanjeev scored 150.5 points in his third place finish. The victor of the match will decide the bronze medal at Gold Coast.

Somveer also claimed Bronze in the 86kg category as he rallied from a 1-3 deficit to defeat Canadian Alexander Moore in the play-off bout.

It is Kom's first Commonwealth medal of any colour and burnishes a heaving trophy cabinet that already includes an Olympic bronze from London 2012 and five amateur world championship titles.
