India finished second in the final pecking order, with more than 100 medals, as the curtain came down on the Commonwealth Games, on Thursday.

A record medal haul of 38 gold, 27 silver and 36 bronze medals, the best-ever harvest for the country in the Games' history, helped India climb to a record-high second place and end the multi-discipline extravaganza on a thumping note.

The main haul of these 101 medals came from the shooting range, wrestling mat, boxing ring, archery range and, to everyone's surprise, the track and field.

A look at the some statistics from the Games.
