Sharath Does India Proud

After playing a pivotal role in India’s victory in the group event in Table Tennis, Sharath Kamal finished off the Commonwealth Games in style with his splendid victory in the Men’s Singles Final. He’s just 24 and I’m sure he’ll bring many more laurels to the country.

Update: News Today has some reactions from yesteryear stalwarts.

  • Totally agree. I managed to see part of the final match live on television. In the group event, when Sharath played that key match, it was amazing to see him transform into a pumped up aggressive player. Quite unlike his usual style.

    Isn't this India's first Commonwealth singles gold for TT? Or has Chetan won it earlier?

  • Echo,
    This is India's first Commonwealth gold in the Singles event of TT. Chetan Baboor has made it to the finals before.
    Sharath had won the Commonweath TT Championship (not to be confused with the regular Commonwealth Games) back in 2004.

  • Not to mention geetha devi and other wt lifters too... caught the highlights on DD, not a huge fan, but it was awesome to see them perform and win... They all had a "Namaste" at the end of it which I thought was just the perfect way to say" top that!!"

    Current mood: NOT PISSED

  • It is a great achievement by Sharath Kamal. I might have contributed to the confusion by mentioning he is the defending commonwealth champion. It doesn't matter now as he has won both :)

  • @Mr. Pissed,
    The shooters and weight lifters performed really well. I don't have access to DD and hence was not able to watch it.

    @SLN,
    No probs man....the interest levels in TT are quite low and I was happy that people know about Sharath Kamal.

  • Hi there... am surprised that now there are blogs in his honour! :D
    Sharath has indeed done a great job and I'm really really proud of him! Yo Sharath...we all love you!
    Well I'm Sharathz cousin, Ramya... same old YMIA kid...coached by the same two master trainers (my uncles!) though I dont play now...i'm always a game for TT!
