Commonwealth Games 2018, Day 1 – The Games are finally here! And India made the most of it with two medals on Day 1 of the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast. P Gururaja bagged India’s first medal of the Games by picking up a silver but the bigger hurrah and celebrations were reserved for fellow wrestler Mirabai Chanu.
The Manipuri created history and set multiple records on the way to standing on the podium. In other key sports, the shuttlers and paddlers faced little resistance and remained unbeaten on the day. In squash, Sourav Ghosal emerged as a surprise upset – made even more stunning considering he led the match 2-0 at one stage. India would hope to bring more glory and medals on Day 2.
