As the XXI Commonwealth Games are slowly coming to an end, Maltese athletes on Thursday took part in wrestling and squash competitions. Amit Panghal and Gaurav Solani had also won.

Sushil thus won gold at the CWG for the third consecutive time. But he bagged the bronze medal in the 91kg boxing category.

Teenaged wrestler Divya Kakran, who claimed medals at the Asian and Commonwealth Wrestling Championships past year, has marked her first appearance at the Commonwealth Games by winning bronze in the women's 68kg freestyle event.

Sarah Wixey of Wales topped the qualifications with a total of 69. "This year he has been coaching in India and I will be training in Germany in three months", he added.

It could be the last event held in the sport at the Games for at least eight years as shooting has not been included on the programme for Birmingham 2022.

Had she claimed six golds, Evripidou would have equalled Australia's most successful medal winners at a single Games - Susie O'Neill (1998 Kuala Lumpur) and Ian Thorpe (2002 Manchester). I am not very happy because I was ready for a good throw but could not do it.

Table Tennis: Mouma Das and Manika Batra reached the finals of the women's doubles and assured another medal for India.

However, the day was not completely free of disappointment as the women's hockey team bowed out of final contention after losing 0-1 to hosts Australia in the semifinal.
