In wrestling, Haryana won two gold medals, while Maharashtra, Manipur and Punjab accounted for one each. In Gymnastics, late on Tuesday night, Uttar Pradesh through Mohammed Rafey and West Bengal through Prathista Samanta won one gold each, while on Wednesday in the Under-17 all-round Rhythmic gymnastics, Bavleen Kaur gave Jammu and Kashmir their first gold.

Manipur's lone winner in wrestling was Khundongbam Loyangamba Singh (U17: 51kg category). So, at the end of the day, Delhi has five gold medals, hosts Maharashtra have won four, Haryana two, while Manipur, Jammu and Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal have won one each.
