Indian boxers continue their sublime run in the ongoing 21st Commonwealth Games, five-time world amateur.

Gold Coast: Indian boxing legend MC Mary Kom, who claimed a gold medal on debut at the Commonwealth Games, will be India's flag-bearer at the event's closing ceremony on Sunday. Mary defeated Kristina O'Hara of Northern Ireland by a unanimous 5:0 verdict to take home her very first gold at CWG.

"Today I'm dedicating my medal to my mum, but I want to represent India at the (Tokyo) 2020 Olympics and to be there when they raise the Indian flag", the 22-year-old said looking ahead.

This is India's 20th gold medal at the Games.


India has so far claimed 16 Gold, 8 Silver and 10 Bronze, taking its total tally to 34 and continued to hold the third position with Australia topping the list followed by England in the second place. Mary Kom is the name, and the gold is hers they say! Kom got the better of O'Hara 30-27, 30-27, 29-28, 30-27, 20-27 in women's boxing final to clinch the gold at Gold Coast.

Australia now leads the medal tally with 161, followed by England with 91 and India with 35.

Here we take a look at the day's finest moments as the Games near a conclusion.

However, Prior grinned her way through the game and blinked back the tears on the podium, the enormity of the moment finally sinking in.


Maddie Hinch added another medal to her collection as England women's hockey team secured bronze at the Commonwealth Games, but revealed it was a "disappointment".

"I am disappointed with the result".

India had beaten England 2-1 in Pool matches but were unable to produce the same magic in the bronze medal encounter.

"Without netball, nobody would have known about me", Proscovia, who plays in the UK Netball Superleague and is studying for a master's degree in London, said on Saturday.


India had two pair in the mixed doubles semi-final, but both failed to make it to the gold medal round at the Commonwealth Gams on Saturday.
