So far in the competition, India has done well. Although all of India's medals have been due to weightlifting so far, other sports have made leaps too. India's Table Tennis Men's and Women's team are in the Semi-finals, one victory away from a medal. Indian Boxers have done well so far as well, with many of the boxers progressing forward in their respective weight categories. 

Athletics will be added to the list in which there is Indian participation on Day 4. There are four events of track and field on the fourth day at Gold Coast. 

One of those events 20 Km Racewalk. Racewalk is a type of race in which athletes have to manoeuvre themselves towards the finish line in a very specific stride. In the Women's walk, India is represented by  Soumya Baby and Khushbir Kaur.
