highlights of day two 

 

1. Sanjita chanu  of course - impressive lift but well within her PB , she has done better lifts at the commonwealth championship ....... but possibly with no competition she took it cool unlike mirakhom

 

2. Deepak Lathers -  Bronze ..... slightly lucky with the samoan going for gold or nothing ...... but overall he is just 18 so is a  great talent if he just keeps himself going at the same rate could be great prospect in a couple of years ........ possibly even a top 10 in the world kind of lifter in the future....equalled his personal best 295  

 

3. Indian women  finally got  their dragflick ( 20+ missed penalty corners I think against wales )  challenges out of their way to beat Malaysia in hockey 

 

4. Boxing impressive performances by both amit and naman to reach quarters , If I am now not mistaken we have 3 men ( this includes satish in the 91+ )  and all the 4 women ( who anyway started in the quarters ) in the quarters ,the way things are going  we possibly may have all 12 boxers ( 8 men and 4 women ) in the quarters ... the remaining men in the round of sixteen are many of top indian boxers  ( Vikas , Manoj , Gaurav and Manish ) and they do not seem to meet any big names in the fray so I feel that all the boxers may reach quarters , which would be a great accomplishment but the quarters are going to be tougher .........

 

5. Lawn bowls fours India doing quite well for a sport which is not at ll known in India .. especially Mens fours where I feel they will reach the quarters .. the pairs team did fairly well but is I think now out of the quarters 

 

6. Joshna Chinnappa retrieving a dismal show by squash players .... she is in good form and has reached the quarters but is coming up to the world 4th ranked joelle king ... may be difficult for her 

 

7. both aruna ( 6th )  and pranati ( 4th ) reaching the finals of the vault ...... missing dipa here the scores have not been very high and possibly she could have a clear gold prospect at least ..... but still I feel a medal is possible ;-) 

 

Bummer of the day 

 

definately saraswati rout ..... looked out of sorts .... missed all three lifts in the 58 ....womens .... after the way the weightlifting team has been doing............. was expected a medal possibly silver from her .... but real crappy show by her 

 

dipika pallikal - not a great show by her , she was against a good player alison waters but expected more resistance from her even if she lost  ( this also reduces hope of a medal in womens double a bit ??? ) 

 

none of the cyclists have done well ( not a true bummer as we did not have much hope in these events ) ...still Indias best hope is yet to come 500m sprint with deborah
