List of Gold medal winners for India at Commonwealth Games 2014

India finished fifth in the just concluded Commonwealth Games 2014 held at Glasgow, Scotland from 23 July to 3 August 2014. A 216-strong team of Indian athletes bagged 15 gold, 30 silver and 19 bronze for a total haul of 64 medals to finish fifth behind table-toppers England (58, 59, 57), Australia (two - 49, 42, 46), Canada (three - 32, 16, 34) and hosts Scotland (four - 19, 15, 19). India had finished second behind Australia in the 2010 Delhi edition but considering that some disciplines, from which the hosts had won medals, were either dropped or pruned down in Glasgow, it was a creditable performance by the Indians in the Games. Let's have a look at the list of 15 Gold Medal winners for India in the game. We would like to thank our friend Pepe who has provided valuable information for preparing this article.
