Commonwealth Games: Wrestler Shirin misses out on bronze
Shirin Sultana went close to earning Bangladesh its first Commonwealth Games medal outside the shooting discipline when the 29-year old wrestler lost the bronze medal tie of the women's freestyle 68kg event at Carrara Sports Arena in Gold Coast, Australia Friday. Shirin began the day with a brilliant 8-3 win over Kenyan wrestler Lilian Nthiga in her opening bout in Group A, but lost to Canada's wrestler Danielle Lappage by technical superiority in the semi-final. The wrestler from Mymensingh faced India’s Divya Kakran in the third-place play-off and lost the game by “Fall” within less than a minute.

In the women's 50m rifle 3 position qualification Friday, Bangladesh shooters Sharmin Shilpa and Suraiya Akter finished 12th and 13th respectively out of 16 participants. Meanwhile, Bangladesh will conclude their Commonwealth Games chapter Saturday as Mohammad Chowdhury Shovon is scheduled to take part in the men's 50m rifle 3 position. Silver medalist Abdullah Hel Baki is one of the entrants but unlikely to participate the event due to lack of preparation.
