Anish, Tejaswani clinch gold; Anjum bags silver

Shreyasi Singh of Indi hugged by her coach Mansher Singh after she won the gold medal

It was a dominant performance by the Indian. Bajrang needed only around two minutes to overpower Kane Charig of Wales by technical superiority.

He is also a victor of a gold medal in 65kg freestyle wrestling at the Asian Wrestling Championship in New Delhi, last year.

In her first Commonwealth appearance, teenaged wrestler Divya Kakran made it count by winning a bronze medal for India.

Boxer Naman Talwar lost to Jason Whateley of Australia in a unanimous decision.

"The bronze medal can stay in Australia, I don't do bronze medals", McGivern said after leaving the ring. Manish Kaushik beat James Mcgivern of Northern Ireland and Gautam Solanki beat M. Vidanalange Ishan Bandara of Sri Lanka. The men's 50m rifle 3 positions shooting pair of Sanjeev Rajput and Chain Singh will look to emulate their women counterparts. It was her third CWG gold and seventh overall medalat the Games. With a swift move in the final minute, she came within a whisker of achieving a win by fall but she appeared too exhausted to close the victory and stop the 24-year-old Nigerian from retaining gold won in 2014.

Sikki Reddy and Ashwini Ponappa progressed to the semi-finals of the women's doubles event after defeating Hasini Ambalangodage and Madushika Beruwelage 21-11, 21-13. No sooner did Anish win, than messages congratulating him poured in.

Indian shooter Anish Bhanwala, aged 15, on Friday created history by becoming the country's youngest ever gold medal victor in the Commonwealth Games (CWG).

This is India's 16th gold at the Games.

Earlier, the Indian contingent who are now studded with 18 gold medals in the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2018 have bettered their gold medal tally from the 2014 CWG that took place in Glasgow.

In the Qualifications, Anish scored 580 to finish top of the tally while Neeraj was second best with 579.

A 2013 World Championship bronze medallist, Bajrang also won gold medals in the Commonwealth Championship in 2016 and 2017 at Singapore and Brakpan, South Africa respectively. He was joined in the final by compatriot Vipin Kasana, who threw 78.88m in his first attempt. Needing to throw a mark of 78m to automatically qualify for the final, the 20-year-old threw 80.42m on his very first attempt. Compatriot Anjum Moudgil took the silver in the same event.

Sawant finished behind Veloso who created a games record with her cumulative score of 621.

"I started very well in the first round, in fact this opponent was not good as the one I defeated in the quarterfinals, but here you get exhausted", She added.

Babu competed in the triple jump and was scheduled to take part in Saturday's final, after qualifying fifth.

Wrestler Sarah McDaid missed out on a place in the semi-finals after losing two of her bouts in the group stages. Mausam Khatri wrestled reigning African champion Marcus Erasmus in the final of the 97-kg category and lost the round 2-12.
