On Thursday, host Madhya Pradesh (MP) extended its golden run at the Khelo India Youth Games (KIYG) 2023 with four more golds on day four. However, it was a day for Maharashtra, as two-time KIYG’ winners, on Day 4 amassed a total of 8 gold, 6 silver, and 7 bronze medals to top the medal table. This caused them to throw out the hosts from the top who had the same number of golds but only three silvers. The gold medals for Maharashtra mostly came in cycling and Yogasana.

Gautami Bhanot from Jabalpur won silver and bronze for India at the Asian Airgun Championships in Korea last year and also did well in the national selection trials recently. She was among four MP gold medalists to win the girls’ 10m Air at Bhopal’s Shooting Academy range. She defeated Maharashtra’s Isha Anil Taksale 16-14 in the gold medal match.

Odisha also showed some dominance in the Upper Lake region of Bhopal as Odisha steamrolled the hosts, picking up three of the five golds on offer and a total of five medals in kayaking and canoeing to move third on the medal table ahead of Haryana.
