Glasgow: Indian discus thrower Seema Punia won the silver medal with her season's best performance while her compatriot and defending champion Krishna Poonia finished a disappointing fifth at the Commonwealth Games here on Friday. (Day 9 developments)
It was the second medal for India from track and field, a day after men's discus thrower Vikas Gowda won the historic gold at the Hampden Park Stadium.
Seema hurled the disc to 61.61 metres to win the silver. She had won the bronze in the 2010 Games where India clinched all the three medals from the event. Seema had also won the silver in the 2006 Melbourne Games.
