PM Modi hails India's performance at Gold Coast CWG

"To get England a one-two, a gold-silver, is absolutely fantastic and that's what we came here to do".

Elated at being India's first woman boxer to claim a CWG gold, Mary Kom said scripting history makes her happy.

Griggs was quick to defend her network amid the furore, but went even further with her criticism.

Gold medalist, Odunayo Adekuoroye clinched first gold for the country in the women's wrestling freestyle 57kg after defeating India's Pooja Dhanda with a 7-5 victory by points. "So if my body allows, I will go". "Them to me, me to them as much as I can", he added with a laugh.

India bettered its showing in Glasgow 2014, where we finished fifth overall, by just two medals. The Indian duo lost 0-2 (9-11, 8-11) to the Kiwis in the pulsating 22-minute summit clash at the Oxenford Studios in Gold Coast.

Australia blitzed the medal tally with 80 gold, making it the country's fourth most successful Games, while arch-rivals England had a final tally of 45 golds.

"While we can't promise you the sun, sand and sea of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, we can offer you youth, energy, creativity and a love of sport", she said. New Zealand are expected to win the semifinal and face Australia in a re-match of the Rio Olympics final.

In badminton, India's shuttlers brought home six medals at Gold Coast, surpassing the four from Delhi 2010, with gold in the team event, gold for Saina Nehwal, silver for Kidambi Srikanth and PV Sindhu. Hosking held off several challenges over the past 200 meters from eventual silver medal victor Georgia Williams of New Zealand and Wales rider Danielle Rowe, who took bronze.

"It was just pure relief, it's so special to have won on home soil", Hosking said.

Guy Sebastian performed at the 2018 Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony.

She received plenty of tactical help during the race from her five fellow Australians. I've got to say it's about the only thing they got wrong. Jonathan Mould of Wales took silver and South Africa's Clint Hendricks took the bronze, all in the same time.
