Indian athletes set JNS track ablaze, win 5 medals

New Delhi, Oct 12 (PTI) India completed an unprecedented success in athletics events in the Commonwealth Games here as they collected one gold and four bronze today to take their medal count to 12.

Indian women's 4x400m relay team added another gold to the one won yesterday by discus thrower Krishna Poonia as medals rained for the home country in front of a cheering near-capacity crowd at the Jawaharalal Nehru Stadium.

The men's and women's 4x100m relay teams, triple jumper Renjith Maheswary and javelin thrower Kashinath Naik added a bronze each. After today's events, only men and women's marathon remained in the athletics competition. In terms of number of medals won, it turned out to be the most productive day for India.
