Manju Wanniarachchi scored a hard-fought victory over Sean McGoldrick of Wales to clinch a rare medal for Sri Lanka and steal the focus from British boxers in the Commonwealth Games. Wanniarachchi had already assured his country of its first medal since 1950 by making the semifinals. But the 30-year-old accountant was determined to win the gold when he took on the 19-year-old McGoldrick.
