Nigeria wins first medal at Commonwealth Games

Nigeria wins first medal at Commonwealth Games

Segun Toriola lost Nigeria's first match 3-2 (14-12,9-11,7-11,13-11,7-11) to Paul Drinkhall.

This is India's ninth gold medal in this Commonwealth Games and the table tennis, eventually, turned out to be the most pleasant surprise for the Indian fans.

Sharath Achanta beat Bode Abiodun 3-1 in the first game despite Abiodun winning the first set 11-4. He too had a similar script as he lost the first game but he lost it close. The absence of world number 26 Aruna Quadri, Nigeria's highest-ranked player, was also an added bonus for India. Whereas Mehuli Ghosh grabbed a silver medal in the 10m air rifle event. The 23-year-old went for a Games record in the final attempt but failed to pull it off.

Sanele Mao of Samoa won gold with a total of 360kg.

England's Owen Boxall got the bronze with a total of 351kg which included 152 kg in snatch and 199 kg in clean and jerk. This is India's second gold medal in table tennis team event after the women's team claimed the yellow medal by drubbing highly-fancied Singapore on Sunday.

Meanwhile, England's netball team secured their biggest ever victory over New Zealand in their final Pool B match.

Goh and Wee Kiong Tan 15-21 20-22 managed to beat the pair of Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty in the men's doubles to keep Malaysia still in the race. However, he made a superb comeback as he dominated the next three sets to eventually win the match 4-11, 11-5, 11-4, 11-9.

This would have been considered a successful season if the Sixers just made the postseason, but that's no longer the case. The Sixers, who already clinched their first playoff berth since 2012, won for the fifth straight game without Embiid.
