India created History in Games

India created History in Games, first time more than 100 medals as the Commonwealth Games which is record in CWG history. A record medal haul of 38 gold, 27 silver and 36 bronze medals, the best-ever harvest for the country in the Games history, helped India climb to the record-high second position.
These 101 medals came from the shooting range, wrestling mat, boxing ring, archery range and, to everyone''s surprise, the track and field events, to provide the country with a reasonably strong sports foundation on which to build a more powerful edifice on. India got a number of sports heroes and heroines in the 12-day sports festival that commenced with a spectacular opening ceremony on October 3 & great closing ceremony on 14th Oct.
Gagan Narang, the Arjun of modern age who scooped up four gold medals while The track and field events witnessed India''s first gold medal in 52 years when Krishna Poonia led a clean sweep of the women''s discus throw, Harwant Kaur and Seema Antil winning the silver and bronze. Later the women''s 4x400m relay squad also struck an unexpected gold with a superb display that pushed Nigeria and England to second and third places.
The badminton queen, Saina Nehwal, brought down two gold medals to bring down the curtains on the country''s competitive show with a bang. Those two gold medals in badminton were vital to help India push England to the third place by the skin of their teeth, India''s gold tally becoming 38 on the last day. This is all about CWG event.
Now come to cricket Indian cricket team made a history to win the test series 2-0 from Australia & pushed Aussies to 5th rank & remain topped in ICC ranking.
At last I would like to say that the golden era of Indian sports is on & we will make a history which no one can broke.
Well done India, keep it up
Jai Hind , Jia Bharat
