CWG 2018 | Day 7: Shreyasi Singh Wins Gold in Double Trap
CWG: Live updates from the 7th day of the 21st Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.
Day 7 Underway, Two Big Medal Hopes
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.
Athletics: Hima Das Finishes Sixth
India’s Hima Das clocked 51.32 sec, her personal best, to finish sixth in the women’s 400 m final. Botswana’s Amantle Montsho comes first, clocking 50.15 sec while Jamaican Anastasia Le-Roy (50.57) and Stephenie Mcpherson (50.93) come second and third respectively.
Athletics: Tejaswin Shankar Finishes Sixth
19-year-old Tejaswin Shankar finishes joint sixth in the high jump final with a best of 2.24 m Despite setting a National record at 2.28 m last month, Tejaswin was unable to clear 2.27 m in his three attempts. He cleared the opening height of 2.18 m on second attempt and went past the bar placed at 2.21 m and 2.24 m without much effort.
