COMMONWEALTH GAMES 2018 MEDAL TALLY

India have been growing steadily in the medal tally for Commonwealth Games. After playing host in 2010 with a contingent of 619 athletes, India's number dipped to 215 in 2014 in Glasgow which yielded 64 medals including 15 gold medals for a fifth place finish. In 2010, that number stood at 101 total medals with 38 golds. As India and near-equal contingent size heads to Gold Coast, the expectations would be to get a higher count. The tricolour is expected to be hoisted consistently in sports such as shooting, badminton, wrestling and weightlifting. Besides the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India's previous best showing at CWG was at the 2002 event in Manchesteser when India scalped 69 medals including 30 gold medals.
