As the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games head into their final stages, there is still a lot of action to come.

Day 9 was a positive one for India. Day 9 started off on a good note with Tejaswini Sawant winning a gold medal & Anjum Moudgil winning a silver medal in Shooting Women's 50m Rifle 3 Positions Finals.

Young gun Anish Bhanwala, only 15-year-old won the gold in the 25m Rapid Fire Pistol Men's Finals. Indian shooters continue to delight and win medals. Bajrang of India also bagged a gold medal in Wrestling 65kg Freestyle category taking India's gold medal tally to 17! Divya Kakran also got home a Bronze medal for India in Wrestling defeating Sherin Sultana of Bangladesh.

India will be looking to end the competition on a high as all the action from the games continues.
