With Geeta winning Indias first gold in womans wrestling yesterday, Alka and Anita made it a hat-trick of gold medals. While Alka outclassed Tonya Verbeek of Canada, Anita beat Megan Budyens of Canada winning the first two rounds on points. Anita won 4-0.

India got another medal courtesy Babita Kumari who lost her 51kg freestyle bout against Ifeoma Christi Nwoye of Nigeria by 4-6 margin. India thus finished with six medals, 3 gold, two silver and a bronze medal.

The star of the day undoubtedly was Alka, who pinned down her much fancied Canadian opponent Tonya in one minute and 49 seconds. Tonya, incidentally is a silver medalist at the Athens Olympics in 2004 and a bronze medal winner at the 2008 Games in Beijing.
