CWG 2018: MC Mary Kom wins gold in her debut Commonwealth Games

"This is my first individual medal in this big tournament (women's singles) and I am feeling really proud", said the 22-year-old to PTI, who had earlier starred in the gold-winning team performance before clinching the women's doubles gold with Mouma Das. Boxers Manish Kaushik and Amit Phangal bag silver too.

The 35-year-old five-time world champion, who is also an Olympic bronze-medallist, claimed her maiden CWG gold after beating Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in the light flyweight (48kg) final on Saturday.

This could be Mary Kom's first and last appearance at the Commonwealth Games.

Vikas defeated Dieudonne Wilfried Seyi Ntsengue of Cameroon by a 5:0 unanimous verdict in a close contest which saw both the boxers claiming to have won the bout before the referee's verdict.

This is India's best ever haul at the mega-event here today.

Sebastian Janikowski, Seahawks agree to deal
During his tenure in Oakland, Janikowski set an National Football League record with 55 field goals from 50 yards or longer. Seattle signed former Jaguar Jason Myers earlier this offseason, so Janikowski will have competition to make the roster.

The technically superior Indian stuck to his usual tactic of taking slow control of the proceedings, trading with caution first up before letting it rip to take the opponent by surprise.

Indian ace, Mary Kom, had won the gold in Asian Championship in Vietnam nearly five months ago to script one of the greatest comebacks in Indian sports history. He has a bronze each from the 2014 Asian Games and the 2015 Asian Championships.

"It's been a pleasure and honour to represent my country in these events".

Manish, on the other hand, lost 2-3 to local favourite Harry Garside, again on a split decision. Amit, who was chasing his third successive global gold, was beaten by England's European silver-medallist Galal Yafai.

The fact that all of the judges gave 10-9 in favour of Clarke at the end of each rounds underlines the tightly fought bout.
