Hello everyone, well, what a fantastic day we have all had. In the space of 24 hours, the medal count has increased dramatically, with Australia passing the 100 medal mark on the medal table. So far, Australia have 101 medals, combined with totals of 34 Gold medals, 31 Silver medals and 36 Bronze medals. England‘s medal total has risen dramatically over 24 hours as well, as we are in second place with an overall count of 93 medals (33 Gold, 33 Silver and 27 Bronze Medals).

Here, I will give a quick summary that highlights yesterday’s events as they unfolded.

  • In Athletics, Weightman, Miller, Samuel, Sharman and the Bryant of England all won Silver.
  • In Gymnastics, England’s men and women teams won golds, Scotland‘s men won Silver, while Wales’ women won Bronze.
  • In Shooting, Jen McIntosh wins a fifth medal, all in all to become Scotland’s most decorated female in the Games’ history.
  • In Swimming, the England Relay team, Ben Proud and Wales’ Georgia Davies won Golds.
  • Scotland have broken their Games medal record (previously was 33 in the 1986 Commonwealth Games that were held in Edinburgh).
