The Indian contingent finished third in the medal tally at the Commonwealth Games held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, between April 4 and 15. They won a total of 66 medals, and players from Haryana - especially the women - led the medal tally with a total of 22 individual medals.
Describing Haryana as a hub of sports, Khattar said the state has just 2 per cent of the country's population but the players have brought laurels at the national and international level with their performance.
In Haryana, he said, a cash award of Rs 6 crore is given to players for winning the gold medal in Olympics, Rs 4 crore for silver medal and Rs 2.5 crore for winning the bronze medal.
