India's athletics is steadily improving and we can hope for better results in the near future.

But don't get disheartened by this near-miss. India has more chances to get medals from track and field.

Keep your eyes open for the highly-talented Tejaswin Shankar in the high jump final tomorrow.

India's Muhammed Anas Yahiya is right behind them at 4th with 45.31 which is a NR.

The 23-year-old Keralite Mohammad Anas will look to end his campaign on a high note. He specialises in the 400 metres event and this is his best chance of winning a medal.

Day 6 of the Commonwealth Games progresses with hopes of winning many more medals just as they did yesterday. In shooting, India's Gagan Narang & Chain Singh qualified for the finals of the 50m Rifle Prone Men's but Gagan Narang finished 7th & Chain Singh finished 4th in the Final. Annu Singh and Heena Sidhu followed suit and reached the Finals of Women's 25m Pistol Finals with Heena Sindhu winning gold. This was India's first gold of the day. Meanwhile, the Indian Men's Hockey team confirmed their spot in the Semifinals beating Malaysia in the morning and reaching the top of the table with 7 points. The Indians have also done well in Squash and Badminton.
