Shuttlers pitchfork India to second spot in Games

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Oct 14 (PTI) - Women shuttlers led by singles title-favourite Saina Nehwal provided India with a golden double to pilot the country to a historic second-place finish in the Commonwealth Games that ended here today.

Saina rallied brilliantly from a first-game loss to put it across Mew Choo Wong of Malaysia 19-21 23-21 21-13 in the women's singles final after Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa had captured the doubles crown.

The men's hockey team crashed to a humiliating 0-8 defeat against world and defending champions Australia in the final, but the two-gold final flourish in badminton enabled India to rise to the second spot in the medals tally with 38 gold, 27 silver and 36 bronze medals.
