CWG 2018: Sathiyan-Manika take mixed TT bronze

Commonwealth Games 2018: Table Tennis Women's Singles Semifinals, India's Manika Batra fighting for medal, Live Updates

In contrast, 15-year-old Karen Lyne used her forehand top spin to great effect to dominate the experienced Indian duo as the Malaysians pocketed the match and the medal on the second opportunity. Australia and England are leading with 184 and 121 medals respectively.

Moreover, this was Batra's third medal at Gold Coast.

They needed just 42 minutes to demolish the challenge of the Sri Lankans and get in the reckoning for India's first-ever men's doubles medal in badminton at the Games.

India's Manika Batra won the bronze medal in the mixed doubles team event of Table Tennis with G Sathiyan on Sunday by beating Achantha Sharath Kamal and Mouma Das on the last day of the 21st Commonwealth Games. She had earlier won a historic womens singles gold and was also a part of the top-finishing womens team.

India's maximum medals came from shooting (16), followed by wrestling (12) and weightlifting (9). It was only yesterday when Batra and Mouma Das won silver, another first for India, in the doubles event.

"To be Commonwealth Games champion is something I never really dreamed of; well it is actually it is something I always dreamed of, but it is something I never thought was possible".

Manika Batra's achieved a massive feat, considering that New Zealand's Chunlli Li, gold victor when the sport made its debut on the Commonwealth Games programme in 2002, stands out as the only non-Singaporean on the list of medallists in the event.

Similarly, Neeraj Chopra's winning effort over 86.47m to win javelin throw gold will be etched in countless young minds, too. His medal is only the fifth track-and-field Gold for India at the Commonwealth Games - the other four being Milkha Singh (1958), discus thrower Krishna Poonia (2010), the women's 4x400m relay quartet of Manjeet Kaur, Sini Jose, Ashwini Akkunji and Mandeep Kaur (2010) and shot-putter Vikas Gowda (2014).

Chirag Chandrashekhar Shetty and Satwik Rankireddy are in the final of the men's doubles badminton at the Commonwealth Games.

She also won a silver medal at the Strandja Memorial Tournament in Bulgaria before arriving in Gold Coast.

The Indian badminton contingent's total of seven medals (2 Gold, 3 Silver and 2 Bronze) turned out to be the best performance by any Indian badminton team at the Games.
