The Power-puff girls of India Indian women have never had it so good in the sporting arena. India's rise to the number two position in the final medals tally was fuelled by our women sport stars. And it was fitting that one of India's most talented sporting icon, Saina Nehwal, played a big part in winning that crucial gold which took India past England in the medals table. Saina saved a match point and rallied brilliantly, from being one game down to win the CWG badminton singles final. She flitted from section of the court to another; bending low to produce a stunning pick up shot or throwing her weight behind a powerful smash. Even after being a game down, Saina fought back with vengeance to script history for India. Saina's never-say-die attitude was a fair reflection of the steely resolve that our female stars carried onto the various competitions that they took part in. Krishna Poonia was another sportsperson who produced a show-stopper performance at the CWG. Poonia's gold medal in Discus Throw was the first time India won the top honours in Athletics in 52 years. Women stars made their mark in almost all fields, including weightlifting, shooting, badminton, wrestling, table-tennis, and athletics. Years after this Delhi CWG, the performance of our women sport stars will resonate in the history of Indian sport. Apart from the women's hockey team, Indian sportspersons showed their clout in various sporting disciplines. Of the 101 medals, including 38 gold, won by India, women sportspersons bagged 22 medals, including 13 gold, 11 silver and 12 bronze.
