Indian trail-blazer Kom finally bags Commonwealth gold

Gold Coast, Apr 13 (PTI) The Indian women's hockey team will look to put behind their semi-final disappointment as they take on World No. 2 England in the bronze medal play-off in the 21st Commonwealth Games here tomorrow.

There are also the expectations that this would be the last medal for MC Mary Kom as she will be taking the retirement after the tournament. Her ultra offensive approach was clearly seen, but Mary Kom turned O'Hara's lack of defense into her advantage brilliantly.

The five-time world champion started this year by bagging gold medals at the Asian Championships and the India Open, defeated Steluta Duta of Romania in her quarterfinal of Strandja.

Indian athletes clinched as many as eight gold medals on the penultimate day of the 21 Commonwealth Games (CWG) being held in Gold Coast in Australia.

"It's very hard", said Kom, reflecting on returning to the boxing ring after the birth of her youngest child. Though Mary's offensive approach meant that she had to be at the receiving end as well, her punches outscored her opponent by a mile.

Stepping onto the top podium was Anja Stridsman int he Women's 60kg division, Skye Nicolson in the Women's 57kg and possibly the standout in the team, Harry Garside who went through five opponents to claim gold. Mohammed Hussamuddin and Manoj Kumar also suffered losses but still managed to secure Bronze medals for the country. Her brothers Jamie and Gavin Nicolson were killed in a traffic accident on the way to training in 1994, before Skye was born.
