New Delhi: A silver medal in the prestigious Diamond League Meet to boast of, discus thrower Vikas Gowda said that he's in good shape to bring laurels for the country in the upcoming Commonwealth and Asian Games later this year.

The Diamond League meets are very competitive and standards very high. It's the same people you will see in Olympics and World Championships final. It (silver medal) definitely gives me a lot of confidence going forward. My performance could have been a little better, but it's a good indicator for the early part of season," said Gowda.
