Maltese Trap Shooter Brian Galea won bronze medal at The Commonwealth Games Gold Coast 2018. Indian pugilists gained three golds out of six finals on Saturday at the Commonwealth Games. India will be going back with eight boxing medals from the current edition, one more than their previous best at the 2010 Delhi Games. "I don't know how I pull it off sometimes", she had said, after her Asian Championship gold in November a year ago.

India's medal tally has just risen to 21 gold medals from 19 because of this. In the end, Mary Kom won 5-0 by a unanimous decision with the cards reading 30-27, 30-27, 29-28, 30-27, 30-27.

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

The 26-year-old waved to the crowd as she departed, and her team's solid defence kept a stranglehold on England's scoring to minimise any concerns of a fightback.

Australia tops the chart with 72 gold medals.

"For me the highlight was the first match against England, the last two minutes and we'd hoped it was also possible now, but that's too bad".

Spring storm could bring snow, freezing rain over weekend: Environment Canada
Hydro officials said extra crews have been brought in to respond to outages created by the storm system. The freezing rain is expected to last until Sunday morning before changing to more heavy rainfall.

It is Kom's first Commonwealth medal of any colour and burnishes a heaving trophy cabinet that already includes an Olympic bronze from London 2012 and five amateur world championship titles. She beat Singapore's Tianwei Feng 12-10, 5-11, 11-8, 5-11, 5-11, 11-9, 13-11.

"I am disappointed with the result". Yesterday, Anish trumped the men standing in his way to become India's youngest-ever gold medallist at the Commonwealth Games after Tejaswini Sawant added another yellow metal to her decorated CWG resume.

In badminton, shuttlers PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal will fight for gold in the women's singles event.

"We need to improve on many things, such as taking every chance, because every match we had chances in the first two minutes, but we always missed".

Earlier, Amit Panghal won silver medal after losing to England's Galal Yafai in men's 46-49kg final.

Seems like no stopping India in the ongoing commonwelath games. The men's team lost 2-1 while the women's side were trounced 6-0 in their respective bronze medal matches.
