 April 14, 2018: Indian boxers made hay on day ten of the Commonwealth Games, Gold Coast Australia delivering a total of four medals, with boxing legend MC Mary Kom claiming women’s 45-48kg gold on her CWG debut, while India’s Neeraj Chopra demolished the men’s javelin throw competition to claim a historic field gold for India.

In the men’s 52kg, boxer Gaurav Solanki claimed the yellow metal while Manish Kaushik (60kg) and Amit Panghal (46-49kg) had to settle for silver.
Mary Kom, 35, beat Northern Ireland's 21-year-old Kristina O'Hara 5-0 via unanimous decision. The five-time world champion won 30-27, 30-27, 29-28, 30-27, 20-27 to land the verdict in her favour.
Solanki was on the attack from the word go, dominating the first two rounds against Brendan Irvine, before the Northern Irishman came back strongly in the final round. Solanki was eventually awarded the bout by a 4:1 split decision from the judges. It was a much improved performance from Solanki, who in the semifinal, recovered admirably from two knockdowns against Sri Lanka's Vidanalange Ishan Bandara.
Amit lost a close bout to England's Galal Yafai after going down 28-29, 27-30, 29-28, 28-28, 28-29 via split verdict.Kaushik put on a riveting effort in his final bout against Harry Garside, but in the end, the Australian was declared winner by the judges, who gave a 3:2 split decision.
Indian wrestlers' formidable showing continued at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, with wrestlers Vinesh Phogat and Sumit triumphing in their respective categories to clinch gold medals. Vinesh outdid Canada's Jessica Macdonald with a 13-3 scoreline to defend her title that she won in Glasgow, while Sumit got a walkover win after his opponent Sinivie Boltic of Nigeria did not turn out owing to an injury. Rio Olympic bronze medallist Sakshi Malik took home a bronze medal, which also signalled India’s 50th medal of the tournament.
In shooting, Sanjeev Rajput created a new Commonwealth Games record, laying claim to the gold medal in men's 50m Rifle 3 positions in Gold Coast [Australia]. Sanjeev shot a Games record of 454.4 to finish at the top ahead of Grzegorz Sych [448.4] of Canada and Dean Bale [441.2] of England at the Belmont Shooting Centre.
