Winning streak

From Manika to Saina, women led the way at CWG. Women are clearly making their mark in the international sporting arena Traditionally, India’s sporting history has always been male dominated. Fortunately, the emergence of few star female players in the last few years has signalled a major shift in this sphere. Gold Coast 2018 was no different.  The recently concluded Commonwealth Games held from April 4 to 15 in Australia have once again proved that woman power is lightning up stadiums. Fifty per cent of all golds won by India were brought in by our female athletes. And mind it, all these medals have come from quite diverse sports, indicating emergence of great female domination across categories.  Out of the total number of 66 medals won Down Under, it was women’s dominance which helped India clinch third spot, including 26 gold, 20 silver and 20 bronze. Notably, 31 (28 individual and three mixed team events) out of total 66 were our female athletes’ contribution, either individually or in a combined effort. In fact, if there was one single big superstar emerged out of CWG this time around, it was none other than Table Tennis’ new queen Manika Batra. She not only…
