India's CWG tally at 33 as shooters, archers, wrestlers, shine

New Delhi: Shooters Heena Sidhu and Annu Raj Singh won a gold in the 10-metre air pistol pairs event at the Commonwealth Games here Tuesday, taking India's gold tally to 31, the highest the country has earned in the Games' history.
 

India had won 30 gold medals at the Manchester Games eight years ago.

Of the 31 gold, 14 have come from the shooters at the Karni Singh Shooting Range.

World champion Tejaswini Sawant won the silver in the women's 50-metre prone event and 'Goldfinger' Samresh Jung and Chandrasekhar Kumar Chaudhary got the silver in the men's 25-metre standard pistol pairs' event.

At 13 hours IST Tuesday India's medals tally read: 31 gold, 25 silver and 28 bronze. With 64 gold, 42 silver and 39 bronze Australia remained table toppers. England were third with 28:49:36.

Soumyadeep Roy upset fancied Cai Xiaoli of Singapore 4-1 to enter the semi-finals of the men's singles table tennis event.

In the women's 10-metre air pistol, India, Australia and Canada were tied for the gold with 759 points each. Canada got the bronze on the basis of lesser number of perfect 10s - they shot 14. India and Australia had 21 each. India bagged the gold on the basis of count-back.

Tuesday evening India will take on England in the men's hockey semi-final. The winner will face world champions Australia who beat arch-rivals New Zealand 6-2 in the morning.

A second dope case, also involving a Nigerian athlete, has been found, Commonwealth Games Federation Mike Fennell told reporters.

"We have had a second anti-doping code violation. Nigeria's Samuel Okon, a 110-metre hurdler, has tested positive for the same Methylhexaneamine substance," Fennell said.

Fennell announced Monday that Nigerian athlete Osayemi Oludamola, who was awarded gold in 100 metres race after Australian Sally Pearson was disqualified for false start, had tested positive for Methylhexaneamine substance.

She has been provisionally suspended. A decision on withdrawing her gold medal will be taken after the results of test of her B sample are received.
