Following Anish's gold medal, India surpassed their medal tall at the Glasgow Gaes in 2014.

Australia have won 63 Gold and 163 medals in total, while England have 29 Gold medals and 91 medals overall in their kitty. This is India's 17th gold medal at Gold Coast.

It meant that a win in her third and final group bout would secure a semi-final spot but McDaid was well beaten by Cameroon's Joseph Essombe Tiako. Pooja took the lead in the opening minute of the first period with a two-point takedown.

Earlier, Kakran went down 1-11 to Nigeria's Blessing Oborududu in women's freestyle 68kg semi-finals.

And then began the medal rush at the Carrara Sports and Leisure centre where the wrestlers snared four- two gold, a silver and a bronze. Another Gold for India!

The 22-year-old, who claimed a gold medal at the Asian Games test event, was at the receiving end of some clean hitting by McGivern but pulled off just enough to get the judges' nod.

37-year-old Tejaswini Sawant and 15-year-old Anish Bhanwala became the oldest and youngest Indian gold medallists for India at Gold Coast with medals in the medals in the 50m rifle 3 position and the 25m rapid fire pistol events respectively. She won a silver in the event on April 11.

Yesterday, Johnston and Doig missed out on the chance to make the final as they lost by the same scoreline to South Africa. Along with Mausam Khatri, Indian grappler Divya Karan in women's division got the better of Gaelle Alakame Anzong. Kiran defeated Mauritian Katouskia Pariadhaven by fall in the repechage of the 76kg category for her first major medal at the global level.

Bajrang Punia also entered men's freestyle 65 kg semi-finals with an emphatic win over Nigeria's Amas Daniel. "Why did they took action on both athletes?"

Games officials said race walker Irfan Kolothum Thodi and triple jumper Rakesh Babu were found to have a syringe in their room in the athletes' village on the Gold Coast.

"The accreditation of Babu and Thodi was suspended with immediate effect from 09:00 local time this morning", a CGF statement, read by President Louise Martin, said. Bajrang made a stunning comeback after being behind eight points in the initial round of the bout. Canada is fourth, accumulating 60 medals (12 gold, 29 silver, 19 bronze).
