CWG 2018: India Clinch 25 Gold, 15 Silver, 18 Bronze, Thus Far

Neeraj Chopra Wins Gold Medal in Men's Javelin Throw Final at CWG 2018 Becomes First Indian to Do So in Commonwealth Games

Gold Coast: Neeraj Chopra on Saturday became the first Indian javelin thrower to claim a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, with a season's best effort of 86.47m in the final here.

Neeraj is getting a pat on his back from all across the globe for clinching gold in the CWG debut as well as taking place for himself among the elite Indian athletes who won a gold medal. He then extended his lead to 86.47 in his fourth throw, which in fact turned out to be his seasonal best.

India have got off to a fantastic start on Day 11 of Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Hamish Peacock took the silver medal for Australia with 82.59m while Grenada's Anderson Peters hurled the javelin a distance of 82.20m for the bronze. The other Indian in the fray, Vipin Kashana, finished fifth with a best of 77.87. Former India athlete and World Championships bronze medallist Anju Bobby George termed him the most promising young Indian athlete today, while his former coach Garry Calvert termed him a "once-in-a-generation-talent". The 20-year-old player is a farmer's son and comes from Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat. And truth be told, it is hard to argue against either of those statements.

In a statement published on his Facebook page Saturday, Corbyn said: "Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace". May has indicated she wants Britain to join in any US -led strikes in response to the attack in Douma.

Neeraj was favourite for gold after his 85.94m throw last month at Patiala during the Federation Cup National Championships.

Chopra won Gold past year at the Asian Athletic Championships 2017, with a throw of 82.23 m. Chopra was in Offenberg until the first week of February and bagged silver at a competition where he hit 82.80m to finish second behind world champion Johannes Vetter of Germany.

With his surprise win, Chopra becomes only the third Indian man to win athletics gold at the Commonwealths, after Milkha "Flying Sikh" Singh in 1958 and Vikas Gowda in 2014.

Since his path-breaking feat, Chopra, although not passing that throw, has stayed within touching distance.
