Manika Batra leads India to historic women table tennis gold

Manika Batra leads India to historic women table tennis gold

India's medal rush from weightlifted continued on Day 4 (Sunday) with medals for Punam Yadav (gold) and Vikas Thakur (bronze). I will try my best to win a medal at the Olympics, but one can never be sure about such things. Appearing in his maiden CWG like Bhaker, Ravi Kumar (224.1) claimed the bronze medal in men's 10m air rifle event after a shoot-off, while Saniya Sheikh was fourth in the women's skeet finals with 32.

Competing in her first Commonwealth Games, Yukoner Jessica Frotten took part in the women's T54 classification 1,500-metre track wheelchair race early this morning in Gold Coast, Australia.

A distant silver-medallist in the event also happened to be a woman - Heena Sidhu. That's why it's important not to think too much.

The weightlifters have had a productive tenure in the Gold Coast thus far as they have won as many as five Golds, two Silvers and two Bronzes.

Hackers Just Deleted The "Despacito" Music Video From YouTube
On Twitter , Prosox was eager to take credit for the hack, which he says he performed with fun-loving intentions. It became the most popular YouTube video of all time in August previous year and hit 5 billion views on Sunday.

In the women's table tennis, Celia Baah-Danso won her first match against Lalma Sifi of Solomon Islands before compatriot Cynthia Kwabi failed to replicate her performance. A year later, she helped India bag a team silver and women's doubles silver in the Commonwealth Table Tennis Championship.

India's best ranked player assigned for her job, Batra did it in style by applying pressure with an attacking approach which saw her outscoring Yihan (3-0) 11-7, 11-4, 11-7 in straight games. More than £1 billion has been spent to get it ready for the competition.

Sachin Chaudhary won India's first medal in para-sports after winning bronze in the men's heavyweight final. Australia added an insurance goal in the final quarter.
