Kom claims gold for India
New Zealand's David Nyika made it consecutive Commonwealth Games gold medals, while India's MC Mery Kom captured her first Games gold on Saturday.
Nyika, a Glasgow 2014 gold medallist in 81kg, stepped up in weight for GC2018 and defeated Australia’s Jason Whateley 5-0, taking gold with a superb display in a bruising 91kg final.
Five-time world champion Kom led a busy day for India, with gold in the 45-48kg division, while countryman Gaurav Solanki was victorious in the 52kg division.
"Even my sports minister came to cheer me on," said Kom. "My country will be very proud."
