India has added two more golds to its medal tally with athlete Neeraj Chopra winning the javelin throw event with a throw distance of 84.67 which also happens to be his season's best.

The 24-year-old from Haryana dominated the proceedings against Wales' Kane Charig to register an emphatic 10-0 win to claim India's 16th gold medal on the eighth day of the Games at the Carrara Sports Arena. Mary Kom was visibly nonchalant as she waited for O'Hara to open up before launching swift counters.

The men had seen England's women thrash India 6-0 in their own bronze medal match earlier in the day, but this contest was a much closer affair as Robert Crutchley's side took it 2-1.

"We are all very disappointed that we could not qualify for the Gold Medal match because it was our target for the Commonwealth Games". The wrestling contingent signed off from the Games with 12 medals overall - five gold, three silver and four bronze.
