CWG medal tally 2010: India 31, England 27, Australia 64. India improves by sweeping women’s discus

CWG News Updates! It was a historic moment for India at the Commonwealth Games 2010. For this India had to wait for 52 years. Woman discus thrower Krishna Poonia was at the centre of attraction after she won the gold medal.

The whole stadium gave Poonia a rapturous welcome at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium as she landed on the podium to receive her gold medal. She grabbed the top honor by throwing the discus to 61.51 metres. The most interesting of the show was that she got full support from her other team-mate Harwant Kaur. She bagged silver with a 60.16 m throw. Seema Antil too followed them by grabbing the bronze, completing 1-2-3. This all was possible because of the 58.46 metre effort.

This is for the first time India’s track history that such a feat has been accomplished by women. The Indian men’s trio of shot putters Jugraj Singh, Gurdeep Singh and Bahadur Singh Chouhan had achieved the unthinkable for the first time at the Asian Championships at Manila some 37 years ago.

By grabbing the gold in filed, Poonia wowed some 35,000 spectators who had turned up at the stadium to watch her win the medal. There was a jubilation at the stadium with many breaking into singing “Jana Gana Mana.” They all enjoyed the moment. It reminded many of the ‘Flying Sikh’ Milkha Singh’s golden run in the 400 metres at Cardiff in 1958.

When the anthem was sung, all those present at the stadium including journalists, security personnel, started singing the anthem. They were pleased to see that India continued to rock at the Commonwealth Games 2010.

Krishna said: “I can’t express my happiness at the support I see all around. I enjoyed it and I thank all the people who came to support me.” The 28-year-old Poonia was also ecstatic for being part of history.
