Wales' Commonwealth Games heroes in stunning pictures from the Gold Coast

The 10-member Indian table tennis team secured 8 (3 Gold, 2 Silver and 3 Bronze) medals, which turned out to be their best-ever medal haul in the history of the Games.

Mary Kom struck her at will, her right hooks being especially telling.

They are not boxing fans.

Settling for silver medals were Amit Panghal (49kg) and Manish Kaushik (60kg) after losing closely-contested bouts here. In the 91 kg finals, India's Satish Kumar defeated England's Frazer Clarke to win silver.

"The people from the Gold Coast and Australians were proud to receive those games and we felt it".

Diver Jennifer Abel bounced back from a disaster in the synchronized three-metre springboard to win gold in the individual event. Krishnan defeated Cameroon's Wilfried Dieudonne 5-0 in the men's 75 kg category. With the loss, Satwik and Chirag settled for the silver medal, bringing an end to India's campaign in the Gold Coast Games.

Chopra's first attempt hit the mark of 85.50 metres. And 20-year-old boxer Thomas Blumenfeld, marked by welts, proudly put his body on the line to earn silver.

Then England will host the XXII Commonwealth Games in 2022 and the flag of the Commonwealth Games was also handed over to them during this stunning extravaganza with millions of people enjoyed the enthusiasms showed by the athletes from around the world including Pakistan.

Gao and his team mate Yu Mengyu claimed the mixed doubles gold earlier in the day.

"My husband and parents are very supportive, but if I wasn't strong that would not be possible". The other Indian shooter, Chain Singh, finished fifth after a score of 419.1. Bronze grabbed by Ashwini Ponnappa and N Sikki Reddy in the women's doubles.

She also got to meet Prince Charles, who presented her with that gold medal. In all, India won eight medals in TableTennis which is the best for any CWG.

Indian shooter Anish Bhanwala, aged 15, created history by becoming the country's youngest ever Gold medal victor in the Commonwealth Games, in the men's 25m rapid fire pistol.

Heavy favourites Australia were also stunned by England in gripping fashion when Helen Housby scored the winning goal in the last second to make it 52-51.

The Tall Blacks need to pick themselves up from a shocking performance in their semifinal defeat against Canada yesterday if they want to leave the Gold Coast with a medal.

Zolkwer previously led the event teams for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games and the Manchester 2002, Melbourne 2006 and Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. The lone Gold came in women's singles Badminton, in which star shuttlers P V Sindhu and Saina Nehal were pitted against each other in the final.
