Manu Bhaker bags 6th gold for India in Commonwealth Games 2018

Manu Bhaker bags 6th gold for India in Commonwealth Games 2018
Heena Sidhu staged a stirring comeback to bag silver at the 21st Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast on Sunday.After the striking win of weightlifter Punam Yadav and her claiming the fifth gold for India,  Manu Bhaker added sixth gold for India at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in 10 m women’s air pistol.
The calm and composed Manu acted far above her age and shot a whopping 240.9 while Sidhu also scored 234 at the Belmont Shooting Centre.
Bhaker having bagged multiple golds at the 2018 ISSF World Cup in Guadalajara, Mexico and the subsequent Junior World Cup in Sydney became the fourth woman to bag gold for India in 2018 CWG.
Also, the host got some cheer as the bronze was taken away by Elena Galiabovitch with 214.9.
As for Bhaker, it was incredibly beautiful to see her performance as the shooting happened to her by chance after a brush with contact sports. Her concentration was indestructible and she held her composure all through to continue her golden run. For someone who took to the sport just a little over two years ago, winning with such consistency would easily qualify as some achievement.
Sidhu also performed spectacularly to win silver after she was on the verge of elimination at one stage. She had also won a silver at the Delhi Games in 2010.
India’s influence on the air pistol event can be seen by the fact that only Sidhu and Bhaker were the two left for the top spots for the honor.
India right now stands at the third position in the Commonwealth Games with a total of ten medals. India has six gold medals, two silver and two bronze in her account. Leading the list of countries is Australia with 59 medals followed by England with a total of 34 medals.
India’s account was opened on the very first day of the competition itself by the Weightlifter P Gururaja who won a silver in the men’s 56kg category.
Then the cycle of bagging medals by the Indians began with Mirabai Chanu winning gold in women’s 48 kg category followed by Sanjita Chanu, Satish Kumar Sivalingam, Venkat Rahul Ragala, Punam Yadav and the very recent, Manu Bhaker.
We hope India keeps on adding medals to her account as there are more days to go with more Indian champions waiting to prove themselves and come back with flying colors.
