Commonwealth Games: Ghana Wins First Medal

Kristina O'Hara is beaten on a unanimous points decision by the legendary Mary Kom in 45 to 48 kg category. She landed punches nearly at will and with tremendous speed, one of which even shook the Irish pugilist's skull to the core. She used pressure from her footwork and utilised it over Christiana.

This is surprisingly Kom's first Commonwealth medal and that too a gold, but after the disappointments at Rio, it would serve as a big encouragement for her. By the second round, Mary Kom seemed to be thoroughly enjoying herself in the ring against her timid rival.

Shooters Anish Bhanwala and Tejaswini Sawant clinched gold medals, while wrestlers earned four medals, including a golden show from Bajrang, even as five boxers entered the finals on a day India clinched 10 medals at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on Friday. In the third and final round, Christina also became aggressive and was giving a good fight to the world champion of five times, but Mary Com won her keeping her defence strong. It was the first time that amateur women's boxing was introduced in the Games.
