That’s all with the individual events. Now, team events; India’s rowing team (Sawarn Singh, Sukhmeet Singh, Dattu Baban Bhokanlal, Om Prakash) won gold in the quadruple sculls event. Another one came in the Men’s Doubles Lawn Tennis event where Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan defeated Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik and Denis Yevseyev.

With a couple of days more left for the event to mark its end, India can expect more medals from its athletes. Dopewope wishes you all the luck.

A writer by profession and footballer by heart and at times vice versa. Sharan’s world revolves around Football, Writing and CR7. He loves Real Madrid even after Cristiano’s departure (that’s appreciable). The lad can go on and on about himself but we pay him to work on articles and not bio.
