Day 7 Underway, Two Big Medal Hopes

CWG 2018 | Day 7: Shreyasi Singh Wins Gold in Double Trap 

We’re officially past the halfway mark at the Commonwealth Games 2018!

A relatively quiet day for India was Tuesday with just Heena Sidhu and Sachin Chaudhary’s medals being added to the team’s tally, Wednesday though doesn't seem like it will be much different.

Already a gold medallist in Gold Coast, Jitu Rai is in action early morning and then we have promising youngsters Tejaswin Shankar’s high jump finale later in the day.

CWG debutant MC Mary Kom is also taking the ring later in the day in a semi-final bout. She has already assured herself of a medal but a win today will earn her a place in the gold medal match.
