Indian athletes’ performance at the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast has been praiseworthy. Day 5 began with shooter Jitu Rai winning gold and Om Mitharval claiming bronze in 10m Air Pistol. The Indian women’s table tennis team scripted history by claiming their first-ever gold medal and the men’s team too emulated the feat, and now India has won its first-ever gold in mixed-team badminton beating Malaysia. The fact that it was a team effort is what makes the victory even more special. While India won in the Mixed Doubles, Men’s Singles, they lost in the Men’s Doubles. But Saina Nehwal’s formidable performance in Women’s Singles ensured that India clinches gold at the end.
