As can be seen above weightlifting has contributed to almost 50 per cent of the entire tally as of now, and that goes on to show the kind of event our athletes have had.
One of the few surprises though was India’s first ever medal in squash where Saurav Ghosal rose to the occasion and won a bronze for the country. Tulika Maan too played like a champion and won a silver in the +78kg women’s judo final.
All in all, in the seven days that have gone by, India have performed pretty well and would want to continue the momentum going forward.
