Gold Coast, April 13: Shooters Anish Bhanwala and Tejaswini Sawant clinched gold medals, while wrestlers earned four medals, including a golden show from Bajrang, even as five boxers entered the finals on a day India clinched 10 medals at the 21st Commonwealth Games (CWG) here on Friday. "I was hoping to come here and fight in the finals to get the silver or the gold, but I just wanted to get through my first match".

On the other hand, Amit Panghal and Manish Kaushik settled for Silver after losing their respective gold medal bouts in Gold Coast.

The five-time world champion started this year by bagging gold medals at the Asian Championships and the India Open, defeated Steluta Duta of Romania in her quarterfinal of Strandja.

England's basketball silver medal at the Commonwealth Games "proves we can play with the best in the world", said point guard Rachael Vanderwal.

Except the last few punches that she received, Mary Kom remained on top throughout to get the yellow metal. They scored 3 but we only scored 2.
