Silver medal

Sushila had defeated Harriet Bonface in
the quarterfinal and Priscilla Morand in
the semis to assure India its seventh medal in Birmingham.


Sushila is now India's most successful Indian judoka at CWG. She is the first Indian to win two CWG medals, having bagged her first (silver) at the 2014 CWG as a 19-year-old.


Sushila has become the third Indian to win a silver medal in the ongoing competition after weightlifters Sanket Sargar and Bindyarani Devi.


Sushila hails from Manipur in India. Her
uncle, Likmabam Dinit, who has represented
India in judo, took Sushila to the Khuman
Lampak Stadium in December 2002.


Sushila clinched gold at the South
Asian Games in 2019 (48kg weight class).
She qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics as the only representative for India in judo.
