CWG 2022 Medal Tally : View Commonwealth Games Medal Table
Women’s hockey team’s real test today
The Indian women’s hockey team will be eyeing revenge when it takes on England today, while it will be their first major test this season at the Commonwealth Games. India registered a 5-0 win over Ghana and 3-1 against Wales in their opening two matches of Pool A, but the Savita Poonia-led side failed to put up a dominating performance. Today, the Indian team will come with extra motivation as it is the same England team that was denied a medal by defeating them in the bronze medal playoff at the Tokyo Olympics. England had denied India a medal at the last Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast in 2018. India then lost the bronze medal match 0-6.
Medal contenders will land in athletics from today
Neeraj Javelin, who won gold in Gold Coast four years ago, will not be able to defend his title in the throw as he suffered an injury during the World Championships in the US last month. In his absence, India’s eyes will be on long jump athlete Murali Sreeshankar, steeple chase player Avinash Sable, discus throw veteran Seema Poonia, women’s javelin thrower Anu Rani etc. India expects medals from Praveen Chitravel, Abdullah Abubakar and Aldos Paul in the triple jump.
On the fifth day there will be rain of medals, including lawn ball, hockey and swimming will be monitored
Best given in Delhi
India’s best performance in the athletics competition of the Commonwealth Games was in Delhi in 2010 when it won two gold, three silver and seven bronze medals. It is difficult to replicate this performance but the Indians can try to give their second best. Indian athletes had won one gold, one silver and one bronze medals in 2014 and 2018 respectively, which is their second best performance.
never returned empty handed
India can get a medal in women’s discus throw on the very first day of athletics. In this event, Seema Poonia and Navjeet will present the challenge from India’s side. In the last Commonwealth Games, he won silver and bronze medals respectively. Seema, who is participating for the fifth time in these games, will try to win her fifth medal. He has so far won three silvers and one bronze. She has never returned empty handed from the Commonwealth Games and is determined to win a medal this time too.
If you give the best, then the medal is sure.
Sreeshankar and Mohammad Anees Yahiya will also be in action today in the men’s long jump from India. National record holder Sreeshankar is in good form and if he doubles his best of 8.36m, he can at least win a bronze. In women’s shot put, national record holder Manpreet Kaur will also compete on Tuesday while sprinter Dutee Chand will compete in the 100m race qualifying event. Tejaswin Shankar will also participate in the qualifying round in the high jump.
Weak relay team
Sekar Dhanalakshmi and Aishwarya Babu were dropped from India’s 36-man squad for failing a doping test. Dhanalakshmi had no chances in the 100m but this has weakened India’s women’s 4x100m relay team.
