In the last edition, India finished third behind Australia and England with 66 medals (26 gold, 20 silver and 20 bronze). Shooters won 16 of those, including seven gold. But India started the Birmingham Games on a strong note with weightlifters proving their worth.
On day 8, Bhavina Patel entered the women’s singles class 3-5 para table tennis final and assured India of a medal. Then the wrestlers took over, ruling the mat in Birmingham. Bajrang Punia and Sakshi Malik won gold, while Anshu Malik settled for the silver in their respective events.
