Kiran also winning a Bronze medal for India in Wrestling Women's Freestyle 76 kg. Sushil Kumar "the superman" winning a gold in Wrestling Men's Freestyle 74 kg category.

In Shooting, Tejaswini Sawant won a Silver medal for India in the Women's 50m Rifle Prone Finals. There was a lot of progress in Badminton and Table Tennis as well. Saina, Sindhu, Srikanth, and H.S. Prannoy all advanced to the latter rounds of Singles category.

However, there was disappointment in Hockey, as the Indian Women's team lost 1-0 to Australia in the Semifinals. They will now face the loser of the other semifinal on a later date to confirm a bronze medal.

India will be looking to finish the tournament on a high as a lot of medals will be decided in the next three days, starting on Day 9.
