Glasgow 2014 round-up: Day Four

  • From the section Scotland

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 moment of the day belonged to Erraid Davies, who, at the age of 13, won a bronze medal in the para-sport 100m breaststroke SB9 final.

"I'm really happy," said the teenager afterwards. "Mum and Dad are here to watch and I'm not sure what we'll do to celebrate later."

Other Scottish medallists were the men's 4x200m relay swimming team and para-sport 1,000m tandem time-trial duo Aileen McGlynn and Louise Haston, who each won silver.

Bronze was won by swimmer Hannah Miley and cyclist Katie Archibald.

High drama also came at Kelvingrove, where Scotland's Alex Marshall and Paul Foster reached the final of the pairs. A millimetre-prefect final delivery by Marshall set up a gold medal match with Malaysia.

The Losers

Wales, England and Scotland all failed to make headway in the Rugby Sevens

The Northern Hemisphere - Wales, England and Scotland all crashed out of the Medal Tournament in the Rugby Sevens at Ibrox.

Wales went down 21-19 to Australia, while England were narrowly beaten by Samoa 15-14.

Scotland managed to narrow the gap on South Africa with tries either side of half time, but the South Africans were too strong and ran out 35-12 winners.

Scotland later went down to a 15-12 defeat against England in the plate semi-final.

The Medal Table

Team Scotland kept their place in the medal table, upping their tally to 30, which is just three behind their Commonwealth Games record.

England remain in second place, with Australia looking good at the top of the table.

Wales are in 8th and Northern Ireland are down in 22nd,
