Treasure just misses a medal at Commonwealth Games

15 Avril 2018

Nigeria's Blessing Oborududu reacts after beating Canada's Danielle Lappage in the women's freestyle 68kg gold medal wrestling match at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in the Carrara Sports Arena on the Gold Coast on April 13, 2018.

Her win is one of the most lion-hearted displays at these Commonwealth Games - Stridsman took gold fighting with an Achilles tendon from a cadaver in her knee.

"When people found out I had torn my ACL, they thought "she is out".

However, despite winning all these medals and earned so many laurels, the hunger is still there.

Mary Kom is back on the worldwide stage in boxing. She was able to convert her aggression into points, going into the mid-break of the first game with a handy 11-6 lead.

Mary, a five-time world champion, defeated Kristina O'Hara of Northern Ireland by a unanimous 5:0 verdict to take the title in probably her final Commonwealth Games campaign.

Nyika, who had won the past three fights between the pair, maintained his supremacy to add to the gold medal he won in the 81kg division at the 2014 Glasgow Games.

"I thought that's it", he said. Boxer Mary Kom won a gold medal-the first Indian woman boxer to do so.

Magnificent Mary is not thinking of hanging up her gloves - there is still one thing on her mind.

"Chukwuma could not participate in women's 100m because they said she had not acclimatized but God still shows His greatness in 4X100m relay".

Apart from these six boxers, three others, Muhammed Hussamuddin, Naman Tanwar and Manoj Kumar claimed bronze medals on Friday. "I haven't left out anything", she signed off. "The medal that I won has put fire in my belly to strive and perform better in the Asian Para Games in Jakarta", he told Bernama on arrival from Gold Coast at Klia2 early this morning.

"If I am not enough fit, maybe I will retire". Mary had made her return in the boxing ring back in November at the Asian Championships after a series of breaks that would undoubtedly hinder any athlete's bout. Even my husband can not stop me. I plan well before bouts.

However, hoping to keep her Commonwealth dreams alive, Stridsman continued to train, even though she could barely walk.

"I had set my sights on improving my personal record and make it to the final".
