Vinesh and Sumit increase the gold haul

Vinesh and Sumit increase the gold haul

India, thus clinched the 23rd Gold medal in Gold Coast.

The one shock was the failure of Rio 2016 bronze medallist Sakshi Malik to hit the top of the podium and instead finish third in the women's 67kg class.

Vinesh also won the bronze medal in the women's freestyle 51 kilogram category at the 2013 Asian Wrestling Championship and clinched gold in the 48 kilogram category at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Coli linked to chopped Romaine lettuce
CDC urged people to check the origin of the romaine lettuce before buying it at a grocery store or ordering it at a restaurant. Health officials have confirmed E. coli cases in Missoula, Flathead, and Ravalli counties, including three hospitalizations.

Vinesh won the bout by technical superiority, winning 13 points in comparison to the three points won by MacDonald.

Earlier, Indian wrestler Sumit Malik won the 125 kilogram freestyle title at the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Saturday.

Sumit defeated Pakistan's Tayab Raza 10-4 in a dramatic final bout. However, here again, the Indian was not needed to push himself following the injury sustained by Sinivie Boltic (Nigeria). Somveer, who started in a rousing fashion with a victory by fall over Kirbati's Kookoo Taebontangaroa, lost to Paksitan's Muhammad Inam rather tamely. Divya Kakran also got home a Bronze medal for India in Wrestling defeating Sherin Sultana of Bangladesh. Babul Supriyo, meanwhile, tweeted a collage of pictures of "champions Neeraj Chopra, Vinesh Phogat, Sumit Malik on winning gold and Sakshi Malik on winning the Bronze Medal". She, however, settled for bronze at gold coast after beating Tayla Ford of New Zealand 6-5 in a stiff battle.
