Star Indian boxer MC Mary Kom won gold in the women's 48 kg category at the 21st Commonwealth Games (CWG) here on Saturday.

Satish Kumar lost to Frazer Clarke of England to settle for Silver in Men's +91kg category to cap of India's day in boxing.

However, Prior grinned her way through the game and blinked back the tears on the podium, the enormity of the moment finally sinking in.

Kom is a former five-time world amateur champion who won a bronze medal in the 51-kilogram division at the London Olympics in 2012. "I'm so glad I got this gold medal for my family and for him".

So this medal is for my team, coach Ronak, Pierre Beauchamp and Alaap for putting in the hard work and believing in me, she signed off.

"I don't have injuries, all I have is minor issues like cramps sometime", she added.

Five-time Asian champion Mary Kom was awarded the bout with identical 30-27 scores by the judges, indicating that they believed she held the upper hand throughout the bout.

Shekhar Kapur: Mary Kom you are unstoppable.

He defeated Brendan Irvine of Northern Ireland in the final. Mary Kom showed full-patience and calmness in the first round and waited for opportunities, and when she got opportunities she roasted well with her punch.

"This is the first time I will be India's flag-bearer in an event like this". Vikas won by a 5:0 unanimous verdict against Ntsengue in a close contest which saw both the boxers claiming to have won the bout before the referee's verdict.

The technically superior Indian stuck to his usual tactic of taking slow control of the proceedings, trading with caution first up before letting it rip to take the opponent by surprise.

One of the biggest criticisms of the Indian team in recent years has been that they fail to turn up in the business end of competitions, and that trend continued in Gold Coast. In their pool encounter, the men had beaten England 4-3 while the women had registered a 2-1 win over the same rival.

"Coming from a small family where we had nothing to becoming somebody, going to school when I never had any hope, getting jobs when I never even dreamt of it, getting to the city when I didn't even know where it was (made possible through netball). It was disturbing. I think it was intentional", he said after his defeat.
