Indian judoka Tulika Maan gave her all but came up short against Scotland's Sarah Adlington in the final to settle for a silver medal in the women's 78kg category in the Commonwealth Games here on Wednesday.

Tulika, who won two fights earlier in the day to make it to the final, led for majority of the bout before Adlington pulled off a decisive move, an Ippon, to win gold.

Adlington had Tulika on the mat with a forceful throw and the Indian landed on her back, ending the contest with 30 seconds remaining.

A silver was still a creditable performance from the 23-year-old from Delhi who gave India its third judo medal in the Birmingham Games.

With this India’s Medal tally stands at 18 with 5 Gold, 6 Silver and 7 Bronze.
