After a relatively quiet day with no Gold medal on Gandhi Jayanti, the Indian contingent came back with nine medals on Day 10 including a couple of Gold. Track and Field athletes continued to do the country proud having gotten 22 medals in the discipline so far, which is equal to shooting as India’s overall tally reached 69 after 10 days including 15 Gold, 26 Silver and 28 Bronze medals. 

The day started with round wins for the men’s cricket team, men’s kabaddi team and women’s hockey team with the first medal coming in canoeing featuring Sunil Singh and Arjun Singh. Preeti Pawar lost the semi-finals in Boxing but won a Bronze medal before the athletes began their golden run. Tejaswin Shankar’s Decathlon run ended in a national record-breaking Silver medal while Parul Chaudhary and Annu Rani won Gold medals in women’s 5000m race and javelin throw, respectively. Praveen Chithravel won a Bronze in the men’s triple jump while another boxer Narender won a Bronze.
