Glasgow 2014 round-up: Day Nine

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

It was a good day for Team Scotland, with three golds, one silver, and two bronze.

Two of Scotland's golds came at Kelvingrove in the lawn bowls, alongside one in the parallel bars from Dan Purvis.

Scotland's silver came with a spirited run from Lynsey Sharp in the 800m with it later emerging, in an emotional interview, that she had spent the night in hospital.

The two bronze medals were won in boxing, with Reece McFadden and Stephen Lavelle both losing out in their semi final bouts.


The Losers

Nigerian triple jumper Olumide Olamgoke collided with no less than two officials while warming up during qualifying for the men's triple jump.
