England triumphed in the Commonwealth Games medals table for the first time in 28 years on Sunday, but there were final day consolations for former top dog Australia with wins in men’s hockey, netball and a squash double. England started the day already assured of top spot in the medals table for the first time since 1986, dethroning Australia. By the end of Sunday’s action, with just 11 more titles to be decided, England had captured 174 medals of which 58 were gold. Australia, who will host the next Games in 2018, finished on a total of 137 with 49 gold.

India wraps up their 20th Commonwealth Games edition on a high note as their player Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa bagged silver medal in their contest to help India rank 5th place in the medal table.  India has won 15 gold, 30 silver and 19 bronze medals to take their medal tally to 64 medals. The medal table had been dominated by England right from the beginning of the Commonwealth Games 2014 before losing it to Australia for a brief time. But England riding high on the success of their swimmer and boxers came back strongly to take over the Medal Table again. England’s medal tally is of 172 including 58 gold, 58 silver and 56 bronze.

Commonwealth Games 2014 kick started on July 23 at the beautiful city of Scotland, Glasgow. Australia notched up the top slot in the last edition’s Commonwealth Games with 177 medals while 19th Commonwealth Games hosts India finished second in the medals tally with total of 101 medals. They had won 38 gold, 27 silver and 36 bronze medals. Australia was on the top of medals table with 74 gold, 55 silver and 48 bronze medals.

Commonwealth Games that are perceived secondary to the Summer Olympics will be hoping to revamp the old thoughts as the beautiful Scottish city Glasgow looks ready to host the 12-day event from July 23 to August 3, 2014. The number of sporting events has been brought down to 17 from 21 earlier played in the 19th edition. They are: Aquatics, Diving (10), Swimming (44), Athletics (50), Badminton (6), Boxing (13), Cycling – Mountain biking (2), Road (4), Track (17), Gymnastics – Artistic gymnastics (14), Rhythmic gymnastics (6), Hockey (2), Judo (14), Lawn Bowls (10), Netball (1), Rugby sevens (1), Shooting (19), Squash (5), Table tennis (7), Triathlon (3), Weightlifting (19), Wrestling – Freestyle (14). India will be participating in 14 of those 17 events at Glasgow. The three events India will not be participating are netball, rugby sevens and triathlon. There are total 1, 385 medals to be won in this edition of Commonwealth Games.

The medals tally of the Commonwealth Games 2014 will be decided on the number of gold medals won. With the nations tied at gold medals, the second yardstick to measure is on the silver medals and then bronze. If the teams are still tied, they would be given equal ranking with the team placed according to alphabetical order. There are 4, 947 athletes participating from 71 countries.

  • Yawn

    Wow, what a competitive event!
    Watch out England and Canada because ANT “Antarctica” is very close behind you, now third in the medals table!

    • indian

      Both are cheaters

      • Ankur Bhardwaj

        STFU..

        • indian

          Why are you jealous

          • Ankur Bhardwaj

            If we win then its our hard work and if others win then they are cheaters.. That’s the logic for stupid people, learn to respect others too.

          • indian

            My friend why europeans not cut the swimming events you know there are 44 events in swimming and second is shooting ony 19 and now they cut it further why they cut archery because asian countries took almost all the medal in it ‘ my friend logic is (give respect and take respect ) now we respect japnese just think about that

          • Ankur Bhardwaj

            So they should cut the swimming events just because Indians can’t compete at swimming??
            Dude, seriously?
            Point is no matter what event it is, we should try to win , if we can’t then atleast we know where we stand and what we need to work upon. So in the next games we will focus more on swimming too.

          • indian

            Ok then why they cut archery and shooting events and wrestling events

          • Ankur Bhardwaj

            That’s for the committee to decide and be assured, there is no partiality in these things.

          • indian

            My friend correct your stats and then decide there is no committe committe is only for olympics in which they are trying to cut wrestling but india iran russia and other nations vote against this and whole europe was very angry on that ; cwg games shedule is decided by eng board and host nation

          • Anand

            Exactly, and that’s why Chinese people are not participating..

          • Deepak Joshi

            actually there is…

    • John Dove

  • Stanley Eddy

    In judo 60kg Chana did well, but due to some technical penalties lost temper, so did not finish well, however he brought Silver and made us proud. watching the fight was so tense, but really great to see Chana at finals.

  • ravindra amol desai

    Congratulations Indians Wid Deeeep Respect Love n Care Share..!!

  • Chandra Singh

    Today Indians should learn that Manipuri girls are not for molesting, raping as all Indians have done in the Capital. These Manipuri girls are bringing the pride of our country. Congratulations

    • Jay Ranade

      I also give credit to Jasbir Singh Kataria, who was a NIS certified weightlifting coach in Imphal from 1974 to 1981 before migrating to USA). His inspiration and coaching sowed the seeds of weightlifting whose tradition carries on till today.
      From New York City

    • Vinod Shankar

      Yes, its high time that the Indian Youth stop bullying, teasing, insulting, raping and killing our North East Indian brethren. The North East Indians are as much Indian as the youth of Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, and the rest of India. We, the rest of Indians should learn to respect our brethren from North East India. The North East brethren have done India proud on more than one occasion and they need to be given their fair share of respect as Indians.

  • patriot Indian

    India must take a part in commonwealth games because it is the only place where India can shows it strength because all were the slave nations previously . England Australia and Canada send their second class players to compete with others

    • ravindra

      Dhyan s dekh CWG games, all countries send their best players, tere baap n tujhe paida karne k baad yahi kaha hoga ki 3rd class launda paida hua hai, padosi ki aulaad

    • Mr0011011 .

      WOW, you are ignorant. Everyone sends their best sportsmen. The Commonwealth Games is a big platform for further competition and experience.

  • ASHWIN RATHID

    CHECK DE INDIA

  • Rajalingam

    Indian athletes all the best for win again more medals

  • vicky

    U bloody chap, unsporty man, don bring politics in d game.. Jus go to hel

    • indian

      Poltics to hai sara paisa cricketers ko de do aur baki sports walo se majduri karao

    • Sayan

      Vicky, is it a language to discuss? why so biting nature? let people express joy, sadness, all for our good afterall

    • Mr0011011 .

      Politics do have a play in sports in India. There is way too much corruption, and not enough money invested in sports, hence why India doesn’t do very well in pretty much anything.

      • indian

        You are wrong india not spend in sports except cricket which is not see as major sport as football in world

  • indian

    Had ho gayi pichli bar scotland 10 no pe tha iss bar wahi pe games hai to main games hata diye aur zabardasti ke medal le rahe hai cheater

    • Sayan

      TRUE but choro yaar, friendly games hain. Host country advantage to lega hi..let us be generous.

  • john brown

    • Sayan

      Scottish people are very good host too. I stay in Edinburgh and undoubtedly lot to learn from Scottish people.

  • giridhar nr

    im disappointed with our performance up till now…..we should be in the top 5 ! the population of india is more than the population of all the other competing countries….!
    anyways congrats to our medalists.

    • indian

      Yes this perfomance is not good according to india size but for this blame to politiens who gave all the money to crickters

  • indian

    Must be third

  • Mangal singh

    we have to produce swimmers too….India lag in swimming other than any sports.

    • Mr0011011 .

      Not just in swimming. Almost all sport.

  • Dru

    How does Aussie have this much medals

    • indian

      There are 2 reasons 1st is that they give their citizenship to other people and they play on behalf of them 2nd is swimming 40 percent medals are come from swimming and they constantaly increase the swimming events because they like it

      • Mr0011011 .

        LOL, no. They INVEST in sport, most particularly swimming. They spend money to actually train them properly, with great facilities. Australia don’t increase swimming events, that is not how it works. Swimming, rightfully, has any different disciplines.

    • Mr0011011 .

      They are fantastic swimmers.

  • Dharam Sahdev

    There are good and bad people everywhere in the world. That is why justice system was created. Men envolved in raping women must be punished but Comments By Chandra Singh are not right to blame all Indians.From Dharam Sahdev

  • fbrit

    CW games = Biggest jokes of the century and India fails even in that.
