Sakshi Malik begins with a win, Vinesh Phogat in action later

Vinesh Phogat won the final by technical superiority

Sushil Kumar's 74kg gold medal might have made him the first Indian wrestler to win three consecutive Commonwealth Games crowns, but it was the younger Bajrang Punia who looked to be the man for the future. As if that was not enough, she remains undefeated in her weight category after defeating the likes of Australia's Rupinder Kaur and Nigeria's Miesinnei Genesis.

Another Indian hope Somveer also won bronze by beating Canada's Alexander Moore 7-3. She bagged an Asian championships silver, her fourth successive medal in the continental event, before taking the top honour in 50kg here this year. Malik had to cling on for dear life in the last 20 seconds, and showed exceptional strength in preventing Ford from flipping her over. So far, India have three gold, three silvers and two bronze medals at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast. It was her good defence right at the end that helped Malik get her first major global medal since the 2016 Olympics. This is consecutive gold medal for Vinesh in Commonwealth Games after winning it four years ago in 48kg category in Glasgow.

Korey Jarvis of Canada got the silver while Pakistan's Tayab Raza took the bronze.

Sakshi had started with an easy win over Berthe Emillene Etane Ngolle (Cameroon) but was unable to sustain the momentum against Canadian Michelle Fazzari and Nigerian Aminat Adeniyi through the next two rounds.

Somveer finished with a bronze in the men's 86kg division, after fighting his way past the repechage round to get to the medal match.
