Indian athletes’ performance at the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast has been commendable. Day 5 began with shooter Jitu Rai winning gold and Om Mitharval claiming bronze in 10m Air Pistol. And now, a day after the Indian women’s table tennis team scripted history by claiming their first-ever gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, the men too emulated their feat and defeated Nigeria 3-0 and to clinch gold. The Indian athletes put up a great show and the Nigerians collapsed despite a decent show in the first game.
People on social media are euphoric after the win and are sending their congratulatory messages. While one wrote, “Brilliant & Clinical! #Indian men’s #TableTennis team win #Gold at #CWG2018 defeating #Nigeria”, another wrote, “India wins Men’s Table Tennis Gold. @TableTennisInd Fantastic performance to match the Women’s. #CWG2018 These are multiple dreams coming true. Changing the face of #IndianTableTennis.” Yet another wrote, “9th Gold medal for India , Gold for Indian paddlers in Mens Team event ,2nd gold in Table tennis team event 👍👌 Well played Sharath, Sathiyan & team , Mixed team Badminton gold to follow in about 20 minutes.” “One more #GoldMedal. It’s the Indian mens team in #TableTennis . Double treat for Table Tennis as Indian Women team bagged the gold yesterday,” read another tweet.
Here are some of the tweets.
