  • Ind vs Pak: Battle of old foes

Putting up a dismal show, world cup medallist gymnast Aruna Reddy failed to qualify for the final round but a "lucky" Pranati Nayak made the cut in vault event of the women's artistic gymnastics in the Commonwealth Games here yesterday.

The duo, Christine Ashley and Husseini Akuetteh Addy, were the first casualties on an ongoing investigation to unmask officials who may have played in the part in the scandal which has overshadowed Ghana's participation in the games.

Deputy Commissioner Gollschewski said there were "normal bail restrictions put on that in terms of contact with people involved in the investigation and where he can go". I broke down at the medal ceremony thinking about all that. I'm loving it and taking it all in and trying to enjoy the atmosphere and not let it get the better of me.

"It is a new start for me after the problems of 2017".

"I think that these wins in the tournament are important because they give us confidence moving forward, said Kidambi Srikanth, who defeated Kieran Merrilees in straight games during the rubber". My back injury that I picked up at the World Championships previous year is still not fully healed. "She (Saina) only reacted out of her respect for me", Harvir added.


The gold is Vasey's first medal at a major worldwide meet and follows on from her silver in the same event at the British Championships earlier this year.

Clareburt led briefly but was in fourth place going into final 100 metres, but finished strongly over his freestyle leg, driving to the line despite not knowing where he was placed. I don't want to look back at my career and think "bloody hell, I took it way too seriously".

Clareburt beat his personal best by four seconds with a time of four minutes 14.42 seconds, despite qualifying sixth-fastest for the final.

This year's games are the 18-year old's first taste of the Commonwealth Games, already bringing home one medal with a chance of a second.
