Glasgow 2014 round-up: Day One

The Commonwealth Games is 11 days of non-stop action.

With 4,000 athletes, 261 medal ceremonies and 71 teams, it can be easy to lose track.

But, don't worry, as each day passes we'll give you a round-up of the winners, the losers, and what you've been saying about it all on social media.

So, here's what happened today.

The Winners

The first gold of Glasgow 2014 went to England's Jodie Stimpson, who won the triathlon, while Alistair Brownlee took gold in the men's event.

Scotland's first medal came with a silver for Aileen McGlynn and Louise Haston in the Para-cycling women's tandem sprint - and it was silver too for Sir Bradley Wiggins and England in the team pursuit.

This was followed by Scottish golds in the judo for sisters Kimberley and Louise Renicks and a gold in the pool for Hannah Miley.

And still in the pool Ross Murdoch took gold ahead of Michael Jamieson for Team Scotland in the Men's 200m Breaststroke.

The Losers

The saddest story of the day belongs to Lomalito Moala, the Tongan boxer who brought a Celtic shirt with him to last night's opening ceremony.

Lomalito won over Glasgow - well, half of it - with his love of the hoops at Celtic Park on Wednesday.

But on Thursday he revealed he wouldn't be competing at the games after failing to meet his weigh-in requirements.

He tweeted: "Now I got a greater responsibility for getting as much Celtictongans to cheer the lads!"

The Medal Table

With the first day came the first notches on the medal table.

England are leading the way - and the tally of golds - with 16 medals in total. A strong performance by Australia sees them second on 14 medals.

Scotland's four golds, three silvers and three bronzes puts them in third on 10. The Wales rhythmic gymnastic silver saw them go eighth.
