Commonwealth Games 2022 medal tally: Indian athletes to create history-HDmoviesfreedownload




Commonwealth Games 2022 is getting more interesting as Indian women created history by ensuring the first ever medal in Lawn Bowls at CWG Birmingham 2022. India heavily relied on weightlifters for a long time, but medals in Judo and an ensured medal in Lawn Bowls are making the competition more interesting.


After India’s dominance in weightlifting, Sushila Devi Likmabam secured the silver medal in the Women’s 48 kg category in Judo, while Vijay Kumar Yadav defeated Dylan Munro in Men’s 60 kg category Judo. Furthermore, Harjinder Kaur also got a bronze for her performance in Women’s 71 kg weightlifting.


With 9 medals in the account, India would be looking to outperform South Africa for the 5th spot. The bigger challenge for India would be to win gold in most of their events to rank higher than South Africa or Canada. Besides, Scotland is another nation that is performing exceptionally well and might get more medals this year.


Today, there will be two major gold medal events. The first one is Lawn Bowls while the other is Table tennis where Indian men would be hoisting the flag. Whether India gets more gold medals or not, we’ll know by the evening. So, here is how India looks at the Commonwealth games 2022 Birmingham.
