Kom, who returned to the sport after having her third child, named Prince, in July 2013, said: "It is very hard to come back but I have not had any injuries and my will-power and mental strength is strong". This was her first-ever CWG medal, bagging it in her debut appearance. Boxers Manish Kaushik and Amit Phangal bag silver too. Olympic 2012 bronze medallist Mary got 30-27, 30-27, 29-28, 30-27, 30-27 points at the end of all three rounds from each of the five judges.

Mary's 22-year-old Irish opponent couldn't counter Mary's experience as she dominated with right hooks. By the second round, Mary Kom seemed to be thoroughly enjoying herself in the ring against her timid rival.

Amit, who was chasing his third successive global gold, was beaten by England's European silver-medallist Galal Yafai.

Manish, on the other hand, lost 2-3 to local favourite Harry Garside, again on a split decision.

In the afternoon, Neeraj Chopra also registered his name at the Carrara stadium when he became the first Indian javelin thrower to claim a gold medal.
