India came up with its third-best Commonwealth Games performance in the 21st edition of the quadrennial multi-sport event in Gold Coast, winning a total of 66 medals.

While their performance in 2010 Delhi Games remains the best (Gold - 38, Silver - 26, Bronze - 36), the Asian giants came up with a vastly improved performance when compared to the fifth-place finish in the last edition in 2014.

While India ended with 64 medals (Gold - 15, Silver - 30 and Bronze 19) in Glasgow, they have finished third on the medal table in Gold Coast with 26 golds, 20 silvers and 20 bronzes.

Young stars shine

It was heartening to see youngsters battling pressure and finishing on the top step of the podium. 15-year-old Anish Bhanwala (shooting), Manu Bhaker (shooting) and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy (badminton) were some of the brightest young stars for India in Gold Coast.

22-year-old Manika Batra's gold medal-winning performances in table tennis (women's singles and women's team event) are certainly the highlight of India's campaign in the 21st Commonwealth Games.

On the other hand, veterans also stepped up and dominated their respective sport as the likes of Mary Kom (boxing), Saina Nehwal (badminton), Sushil Kumar (wrestling) and Tejaswini Sawant (shooting) made merry.

Indian shooters reign supreme in Gold Coast

Shooters won the most number of medals for India in Gold Coast (16 - 7 Golds, 4 Silvers and 5 Bronzes).

All the 12 wrestlers, who were part of the Indian contingent, won medals. Five of them finished on the top step of the podium.
