Geeta on song as India finish with 17 gold


The 27-medal haul, including 17 gold, by the 29 lifters will give some solace to the beleaguered Indian Weightlifting Federation, which is facing the prospect of an international ban after seven lifters tested positive in out-of-competition tests conducted by WADA and NADA recently.

Rani won gold in the senior women’s +75 kg category while Nansita Devi did the same in the 69kg category. Sandeep Kumar added a silver in men’s senior +105kg. Out of the 27 medals (17 gold, nine silver, one bronze), the seniors contributed 12 -- seven gold and five silver -- with the men accounting for three gold and four silver.
