World Championships Bronze Medalist, Lakshya Sen creates history by winning the gold medal in Men’s Singles at the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022. Lakshya defeated Tze Yong NG of Malaysia 19-21, 21-9, 21-16 in the finals to claim the gold medal.
Lakshya started slowly and lost the first game closely 19-21 to the Malaysian. The close result in the first game pushed Lakshya and he dominated the second game with a score of 21-9. All England silver medalist, Lakshya won 11 points in the row to finish the second game.
Lakshya came all out in the third game to claim gold with a score of 21-16 despite resistance from the Malaysian.
