CWG: Indian men's hockey team loses bronze medal playoff

Adjust Comment Print

The 35-year-old mother-of-three, who has five world titles and an Olympic bronze medal, is seen as a sporting icon not just in India but also in other countries.

Actress Priyanka Chopra, who is now shooting for her American TV show, Quantico, in Ireland, took to social media to congratulate boxer Mary Kom on winning gold in her maiden Commonwealth Games appearance.

England won both the men's and women's 4×100-meter relays on the final day of track, while Botswana took the men's 4×400 and Jamaica the women's 4×400.

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

This is India's 20th gold medal at the Games. As of now, India stands at the third spot with a total of 18 golds, 11 silvers and 14 bronze medals. Mary Kom struck her at will, her right hooks being especially telling.

Medals have included gold for Katie Archibald and silver for her brother John for Scotland in the individual pursuits last week, and most recently silver and bronze for Wales in the men's and women's road races today through Jon Mould and Dani Rowe.

Trump pardons '# 039 & Scooter; Libby
In 2007, James Comey was the deputy attorney general, and appointed a special counsel to oversee the FBI investigation into Libby. Ms Plame said a pardon would send a message "that you can commit crimes against national security and you will be pardoned".

"I don't know how I pull it off sometimes", she had said, after her Asian Championship gold.

"I got a lovely shiner but it's worth taking for that gold medal. We are so disappointed, we did not expect this will be the result of this tour", Manpreet said. "She called me early in the morning, crying, saying victory". Kom added another triumph in her glittering boxing career for India on Saturday as she became the 1st Indian women to take home the gold medal in boxing.

"I would like to thank everyone in my team for preparing me for the finals". "This is the first time I saw them making more defensive errors".

Australia await in the final following their victory over the Silver Ferns of New Zealand - a trans-Tasman rivalry that was played out twice in Saturday's hockey finals.

Plenty of medals are up for grabs to cap off the athletics programme on the track with all four relays, the men's 1,500m women's high jump and men's triple jump to be decided.
