Anish becomes the youngest to win Gold at CWG

Anish becomes the youngest to win Gold at CWG 15-year-old shooter Anish Bhanwala became the youngest contributor to India’s medal tally at the Commonwealth games in Australia.

Expressing his happiness, Anish said, ‘I was fully expecting this medal because I have been doing it in other tournaments. The names keep changing but I get the same results'. To focus on the positives, the day belonged to Anish, who shot down a Games record for his gold in the 25m rapid fire pistol event.

India's medal tally rose to 42, including 17 gold, 11 silver and 14 bronze. India had won 15 gold medals in the 2014 Glasgow Games. But India had loads to be embarrassed about on a day when two track and field athletes were ordered out of the Commonwealth Games for breaching the event's 'No Needle policy' here.
