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's going on social media.

So, here's what happened today.

The Winners

Gavin Rumgay

It was a relatively quiet day in terms of Scottish medals, with one silver and one bronze being added to Team Scotland's haul.

The silver belonged to gymnast Daniel Keatings, who finished second to England's Max Whitlock in the men's all-around final at the Hydro.

At the SECC, Scottish wrestler Viorel Etko defeated Malta's Adam Vella to win bronze in the 61kg category.

Elsewhere, Guy Learmonth powered his way to Thursday's 800m final, and Gavin Rumgay celebrated a second round doubles table tennis win in trademark "wedgie" style alongside partner Craig Howieson.

The Losers

Amsyar Azman

The unfortunate moment of the day belonged to Malaysian diver Ahmad Amsyar Azman, who ended up falling "flat on his face" in the preliminary round of the men's 1m springboard.

BBC co-commentator Leon Taylor says Azman "put all his chips on the table," but his attempt to pull off a difficult dive turned into a "complete debacle."

It probably wasn't the splash he was hoping to make at Glasgow 2014.
