Commonwealth Games: Indian women's hockey team misses out on bronze medal

Posted April 14, 2018

Maltese Trap Shooter Brian Galea won bronze medal at The Commonwealth Games Gold Coast 2018.

England had found themselves in a Commonwealth or World Cup semi-final 18 times before Saturday's match, including that last-second defeat at Glasgow 2014, and only once had they emerged victorious, way back in 1975.

India has added two more golds to its medal tally with athlete Neeraj Chopra winning the javelin throw event with a throw distance of 84.67 which also happens to be his season's best. "I don't know how I pull it off sometimes", she had said, after her Asian Championship gold in November past year.

Jamie was already an Olympian and a Commonwealth Games bronze medalist, a feat Skye was able to improve on, edging Sarah Walsh from Northern Ireland to get the gold. The Indian lost the third round but did just enough in the first two to walk away with a gold medal on debut at the Games.

Navneet Kaur earned India's first penalty corner in the eighth minute.

The final against Kristina O'Hara (Northern Ireland) was an intense contest.

Mary is a five-time World Champion, an Olympic bronze medalist and has also won the Asian Championship five times.

"I still think about Olympics gold but other than that I have got everything". The 35-year-old used all her experience to put the outcome beyond doubt.

The Indian duo defeated their opponents 11-5, 11-6, 12-10.

"I am disappointed with the result".

"The rivalry between India and Pakistan is a big deal, so I'm glad I emerged victorious today for my country", he said. Saina will now take on the victor of PV Sindhu and Michelle Li in the final.

Acting government communications director general Phumla Williams said: "We are proud of all our participants at the Commonwealth Games".

Boxer Gaurav Solanki won gold medal in the men's flyweight (52 kilogram) category. "The Bronze Medal match gives us the opportunity to end our campaign on a good note and prepare for the future tournaments with confidence in ourselves", said Rani.

Both the Aussie Men and Women's team are taking on New Zealand in the Gold Medal matches for the Hockey, and the pool action continues at the Rugby 7s.
