Indian women's 4x400m relay quartet strike gold

New Delhi October 13:

The women's 4x400m relay quartet grabbed the second athletic gold medal for India in as many days while four bronze medals too were plucked by the host nation on another glorious day for India at the Commonwealth Games when the men's hockey team made their maiden entry into the final.

The 1,600m relay squad of Manjeet Kaur, Sini Jose, Chidananda Ashwini and Mandeep Kaur ran a blistering race to cross the line first in 3 mins, 27.77 secs to give India their 32nd gold medal of the Games, a new high from a single edition for the country. The hosts also maintained their second position in the medals table behind Australia with a tally 32-25-32. India's previous record gold tally was 30 eight years ago from Manchester, England.
