Later Satish lost to England's European Championships silver-medallist Frazer Clarke in his final clash to end with a silver medal. None in the field came close to his performance even though he himself seemed wanting for better on missing a personal best by "just one centimetre". "It will be hard because I will have to move up a weight, but I will try my best". "But I am very happy and I have lot of competitions this year to achieve the personal best", Neeraj told PTI after his triumph. "I don't know if I deserve it but I am certainly very proud of it", Mary Kom said. This was her first-ever CWG medal, bagging it in her debut appearance.

Settling for silver medals were Amit Panghal (49kg) and Manish Kaushik (60kg) after losing closely-contested bouts here.
