Kom is a former five-time world amateur champion who won a bronze medal in the 51-kilogram division at the London Olympics in 2012. Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara had no chance in the final with Mary Kom as she lost the fight in a 5-0 point.

New Zealand triumphed in the women's decider, before Australia's men took gold in their match.

"This is the first time I will be India's flag-bearer in an event like this".

On Friday, with Anish Bhanwala's gold, India went past its medal tally at Glasgow.

India had won silver medals in the previous two editions, ending runners-up to Australia on both occasion.

She competed in the Asian championships last November in the first stage of a comeback and won gold.

India have 16 Silver and 18 Bronze to accompany the 25 gold medals won.

Indian boxing star Mary Kom opened up on the heartache she faced returning to competition after having children as she captured her first Commonwealth Games title on Saturday at the age of 35. "The team is also disappointed that for all the effort we put, we didn't get the result". "I hope they (Indian players) don't ever want to experience this any more", he said.

Vandana took the field with bandage on her forehead and immediately made an impact as India got three back-to-back penalty corners.

"If I am still super-fit in another year I will try", she added of another tilt at a maiden Olympic gold.

Boxing: Two Indian boxers Manish Kaushik in the 60 kg and Gautam Solanki in the 52 kg category reached the finals today.

The men had seen England's women thrash India 6-0 in their own bronze medal match earlier in the day, but this contest was a much closer affair as Robert Crutchley's side took it 2-1. "The best athletes are the most resilient, that's why I am so proud of this team".

Plenty of medals are up for grabs to cap off the athletics programme on the track with all four relays, the men's 1,500m women's high jump and men's triple jump to be decided.
