Women grapplers, shooters share spotlight

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Oct 8 (PTI): Women grapplers Alka Tomar and Anita grabbed gold medals to steal some of the limelight away from the all-conquering shooters as India bagged 12 medals, including six gold, on the fifth day of competitions in the Commonwealth Games today.

Freestyle exponents Tomar and Anita fought their way in superb fashion to claim the 59 and 67 kg category honours respectively while the all-conquering shooters scooped up 3 gold and women recurve archers followed suit with one.

The collection of six gold medals boosted the total haul to 20 and also kept the country, who reaped three silver and three bronze medals during the day, glued to the second spot behind front runners Australia in what turned out to be India's most fruitful day in the Games so far.
