Wrestler Sushil Kumar clinches 28th Gold medal for India at CWG

Wrestler Sushil Kumar clinched 28th gold medal by defeating South African player Heinrich Barnes 7-0 in the 66-kilogram category of the freestyle wrestling competition at the XIX Commonwealth Games here on Sunday


New Delhi, Oct.10 : Wrestler Sushil Kumar clinched 28th gold medal by defeating South African player Heinrich Barnes 7-0 in the 66-kilogram category of the freestyle wrestling competition at the XIX Commonwealth Games here on Sunday

Sushil's gold medal led Indian medal tally reach 66 medals in total with 28 Gold, 18 Silver and 20 Bronze medals in the kitty and helped India remain firmly positioned on second place in the over all medal tally.

Earlier, archer Rahul Banerjee won 27th gold in the men's individual recurve event by defeating Canada's Jason Lyon.

Rahul Banerjee won gold after an intense sudden death shootout against his Canadian opponent in the final.

Meanwhile, Manavjit Singh Sandhu won bronze for India in singles trap event and Jayanta Talukdar too won bronze in the men's individual recurve event.

Earlier, archer Deepika Kumari won gold in the women's recurve archery singles while Dola Banerjee won the bronze in the same event.

Deepika bagged gold by beating England's Alison Jane Williamson.

Earlier, Dola had lost out to England's Williamson in the semis.

Meanwhile, in the Commonwealth Games Women's cycling competition, Australian women's team overcame high expectations to win gold.

Rochelle Gilmore of Australia won the race in 2 hours, 49 minutes and 30 seconds beating Elizabeth Armistead of England who in turn snatched the silver from Gilmore's teammate Chloe Hosking who was third place in the morning race staged over eight laps of a 14-km course.

The bikers raced across scenic empty streets enveloped in a high-security blanket that kept spectators away.

The race conducted in a fenced off and barricaded course had elaborate security including heli-borne assault teams, commando hit teams and quick reaction teams providing athletes foolproof security.

Reacting upon her today's success, Gilmore said, "It was a lot of pressure. There was a lot of positive energy, yes, but pressure that was on the road team to win a gold medal was pretty intense to live up to expectations of the track team. There had been lot of chances for the track team to win gold but we had only one chance for a gold medal. So the pressure was really on."

She, however, credited her entire team for today's win.
