India maintains its medal-winning streak in the Commonwealth Games with Manika Batra and Mouma Das earning a silver medal in Women’s Double in Table Tennis. It’s is the third medal in TT at the Gold Coast Games, after the first gold last week and the second gold won by the men’s team by defeating Nigeria on Monday.
Though Batra had got India a historic victory in the team championship, her partnership with Das couldn’t pass their opponents’ and they won with an 11-5, 11-4, 11-5 victory.
In the past four games, India had been unable to make it to the finals. It was 2010, in the women’s doubles, when Das and Polumi Ghatak had together clinched the bronze medal. So, winning a silver is, undoubtedly, a remarkable feat.
UPDATE: Table Tennis player Manika Batra clinched gold in the Women’s Singles Table Tennis Final on Friday. As the star in rising clinched this medal on Day 9 of 2018 Commonwealth Games (CWG), she became the first-ever Indian woman to win a singles gold at CWG. This is Batra’s third medal at the event. She won gold in team event a week ago and silver in the women’s doubles event yesterday.
