New Delhi: India's women's 4x100m team finished fifth place at the 2022 Commonwealth Games on Sunday as Hima Das's final chance to win a medal came to an end.

Nigeria managed to grab a gold medal, followed by England in second, Jamaica in third, and Australia in fourth.

Unfortunately, India's top four competitors, Dutee Chand, Hima Das, Sarbani Nanda, and Jyothi Yarraji were far behind and failed to pose a serious threat to the top three.

So far, India has won eight medals in athletics at the 2022 Commonwealth Games - one gold, four silver, and three bronze.

The Indian contingent has won a total of 34 medals so far with the most number of medals coming in weightlifting and wrestling events. With this figure, India is currently ranked fifth in the overall medals tally with 12 gold, 11 silver, and 11 bronze medals.

Notably, this time athletes from Assam such as Shiva Thapa, Lovlina Borgohain, and now Hima Das have performed poorly in their respective categories.

Only Nayanmoni Saikia and her team performed exceptionally well in the games.

Meanwhile, the Indian women's hockey team's quest for a berth in the Commonwealth Games final ended in heartbreak with powerhouse Australia defeating them 3-0 in the shootout here.

The Savita Punia-led India team fought valiantly in the semifinal in the regulation time which ended in 1-1 but missed out on converting their attempts in the shootout. Ambrosia Malone, Amy Lawton and Kaitlin Nobbs scored goals for Australia in the shootout.

Rebecca Greiner (10th min) scored the solitary goal for Australia while Vandana Katariya (49th) was the lone scorer from the Indian side.

India will next take on New Zealand in the bronze-medal match on August 7.
