Indian athletes were on cloud nine in July this year as they were able to achieve a great amount of success in the international arena. The Indian athletes were able to capture 227 medals in just one month in 9 different disciplines. The 9 disciplines include athletics, wrestling, badminton, boxing, weightlifting, judo, para-shooting, table tennis and shooting.
The month really made the Indian athletic fans very much proud and this is something unique that the Indian athletes have not achieved in the history.
Indian boxer MC Mary Kom won the gold medal at the President's cup and Vinesh Phogat was also able to win the accolades at Yasar Dogu. Apart from them, players such as Mirabai Chanu, Elavenil Valarivan, Tababi Devi and Mehuli Ghosh also claimed glory during the month of July 2019. The Indian stars were the main talking point during the various international events that was held in the month of July.
But another disappointing side is that the Rio Olympics silver medalist and shuttler P V Sindhu lost in the finals of the Indonesian Open and archer Deepika Kumari had to settle for a silver medal at the Tokyo 2020 Archery Test event. 71 medals out of the 227 medals were won in athletics that was held in countries such as Poland, Czech Republic, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyztan. This is something like a proud moment for the Indian athletics and all the hard-work and efforts in the recent times has been bearing the fruits.
The Commonwealth Weightlifting Championships that was held in Samoa, saw the Indian players winning 35 medals. The Indian shooters were also not too far behind as they won 24 medals in the ISSF Junior World championship that was held in Suhl, Germany.
The Indian team were also able to bag six medals in Judo championship at the Asia-Oceania Cadet Championship, which was held in Taipei.
