Glasgow 2014 round-up: Day 11

So there you have it - the Commonwealth Games has been 11 days of non-stop action.

With 4,000 athletes, 261 medal ceremonies and 71 teams, it's been easy to lose track.

As each day passed we gave you a round-up of the winners, the losers, and what was happening on social media.

So, here's how the final day shaped up.


The Winners

Scotland's final medal of the Games came in the women's singles badminton. Kirsty Gilmour was beaten 2-0 by Canada's Michelle Li in the gold medal match, to take silver.

Glasgow has also been hailed as another big winner in the Games - even if it did throw everything it had at the cycling road race.

Golds in that event went to England's Lizzie Armitstead and Geraint Thomas of Wales.

In some of the other final competitions, Australia took gold in the women's netball and in the men's hockey.


The Losers

For the second day in a row the losers of the day were the spectators who didn't venture out with four, maybe even five, seasons-worth of appropriate clothing.

The conditions on the streets for the cyclists were at times sunny with more than a hint of torrential downpour.

The "interesting" weather, however, didn't put off the crowds from lining the road race course right throughout the day.


The Medal Table

So the target was 34 - and, at the end of the Games, Team Scotland has bettered that by almost 20 medals, with a final haul of 53.

Judo and swimming brought 23 medals between them, with golds also in gymnastics, cycling, boxing, bowls and athletics.

Topping the table are England on 173 medals, followed by Australia and Canada. Wales finished 12th on 36 medals, with Northern Ireland were 15th on 12.
