At the World Games held in Kathmandu, the women's team trounced their arch-rivals Pakistan 15-13, 15-12 to win the gold medal. It was a nail-biting final, but the determined Indian women’s team managed to clinch the title.
The men also posted a similar score of 15-13, 15-12 against their opponents, Bangladesh to defeat them and win the title.
