Glasgow 2014 round-up: Day Five

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

Libby Clegg and her guide Mikail Huggins sprinted home to take a gold in the para-sport 100m, equalling the all-time Team Scotland tally of 33 medals.

And at Kelvingrove the men's pairs bowled Scotland to a record 12th gold, easily beating Malaysia.

There was also a bronze in the 50m prone rifle shooting for Jennifer McIntosh.

Elsewhere, Adam Gemili took silver for England in the men's 100m and Jazz Carlin got gold for Wales in the pool.


The Losers

It wasn't good news for Australia's Jake Stein, who was disqualified from the decathlon after two false starts in the 100m.

BBC Sport pundits Denise Lewis and Colin Jackson had little sympathy for Stein and said his reaction to disqualification was "disappointing".


The Medal Table

The table is looking good for Team Scotland - with 33 medals across six disciplines.

Scotland lie in third place, with Australia leading the way and England second.

Further down Wales sit in eighth and Northern Ireland are in 16th place.
