Day 8 awards update – Haryana inch nearer to the top spot – KIYG 2020

The eighth day of Khelo India Youth Games 2020 saw some nail-gnawing experiences under every one of the games. The emphasis was significantly on group occasions, for example, football, hockey, ball and Lawn Bowl yet the awards were available to all significantly in the shooting and wrestling occasions.

Maharashtra had taken a major lead toward the finish of day seven. Be that as it may, Haryana figured out how to retaliate in the boxing occasion as their fighters guaranteed that Maharashtra’s lead boiled down to six gold decorations in particular. On that note, let us examine the after effects of seventeenth January.

There were a large group of capability occasions in the game of shooting. Likewise, the finals of the three classes were planned for seventeenth January.
