In qualification, the 37-year-old scored a total of 1180 (58x) to break Olympic medallist Gagan Narang's qualification record of 1166.

Indian wrestlers did the nation proud as Sumit Malik won the 125 kilogram freestyle title while Vinesh Phogat took women's 50kg gold. So were Gaurav Solanki and Vikas Krishan as Indian boxing celebrated its finest hour in a long, long time, winning three golds out of the six finals in which its pugilists featured at the Commonwealth Games here on Saturday.

Manish, on the other hand, lost 2-3 to local favourite Harry Garside, again on a split decision. Leading 2-1 against Pakistan in the opening game, they had a chance to close the game out but Mandeep Singh went for a narrow-angle shot rather than lay it up for SV Sunil.

"Credit to the boxers for the way they fought, even those who lost gave fighting performances", he added. Australia had won gold at four of the last five Commonwealth Games since Kuala Lumpur in 1998.

Indian boxer Vikas Krishan defeated Dieudonne Wilfried Seyi Ntsengue of Cameroon in the 75kg category final to clinch the eighth Gold of the day for the country. The heartbreak of missing the gold left her in tears during the medal ceremony.
