Glasgow 2014 round-up: Day 10

  • 2 August 2014
  • 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's going on social media.

So, here's what happened today.

The Winners

The winners of the day were Team Scotland's boxers, whose two golds propelled the host nation over the 50 medal mark.

Charlie Flynn's gold in the light 60kg category was Scotland's 50th medal, and the 51st came with Josh Taylor's 64kg light welter win.

Imogen Bankier and Robert Blair won mixed doubles badminton bronze, and Kirsty Gilmore reached Day 11's singles final.

Micky Yule just missed out on a medal place in the men's para-sport 72.1kg category weightlifting, coming in fourth.

The Losers

Day Ten's losers were people who left the house without an umbrella.

Torrential rain came down on Hampden during the athletics, causing the field events to be delayed by 45 minutes.

Even when they resumed, some events were made very difficult by the conditions.

But we couldn't let our Commonwealth guests leave without experiencing a proper Glasgow downpour, could we?

The Medal Table

As Day Ten ended, Scotland had 19 gold medals, 14 silver, and 19 bronze - a total of 52 medals, with one day to go.

The Scots are five golds ahead of India in fifth, so should hold on to fourth spot as the games come to an end.

In other news, England will finish Glasgow 2014 as winners with 11 gold medals left to win, and a gap of 12 between them and Australia.
