"Any win for the country is a good thing and having both the girls in the final is a proud moment because the gold and silver is going to India, which I'm very happy about", Sindhu said. Boxers Amit Panghal (49kg), Manish Kaushik (60kg) and Satish Kumar (+91kg) settled for silver after losing closely-contested bouts.

But India captain Rani Rampal is determined to make amends by securing the Bronze Medal.
