Commonwealth Games 2018: 5th Day Commences, More Medals To Come


Gold Coast: After India’s exuberant fourth day in the 21st Commonwealth Games in Australia on Sunday, Day 5 vows to be even more exciting with quite a lot of finals en route on Monday. While the Badminton mixed team are most favourable to extend India’s gold medal tally, the focus will also be upon the weightlifting contingent with four more medal chances. While the shooting contingent already was at the helm of India’s glory on the fourth day as Manu Bhaker, Heena Sidhu and Ravi Kumar bringing three medals for the country, there are three more finals slated on Monday. Athlete Tejaswin Shankar will have ample eyeballs focussed on him as he is also a bright medal prospect for India on the fifth day.
