Commonwealth Games 2014: More medals for home nations!
- 27 July 2014
The 2014 Commonwealth Games is well underway in Glasgow, and even more medals have been won for our home nations. Take a look at some of the highlights from the last 24 hours!
Swimming: Fran Halsall and Adam Peaty were both won gold in the pool for England. Halsall, 24, won the women's 50m free in 23.96 seconds, the fastest time in the world this year and a Games record. Peaty triumphed in the 100m breaststroke.
Weightlifting: England's Zoe Smith won gold, lifting 118 kilos to set a new Commonwealth Games record total. Four years ago at the Delhi Games she won bronze aged just 16. This time around it was a pretty impressive backflip to celebrate.
Judo: It was another blockbuster for Scotland in judo. One of the biggest moments of the games for the hosts came when things turned golden for flag bearer Euan Burton. Less than two minutes into the final against his Pakistani opponent, he pulled off a throw which won him gold.
Cycling: The Isle of Man team won their first medal of the games with Peter Kennaugh's silver in the men's 40km points race.
Scotland pair Neil Fachie and pilot Craig Maclean won para-cycling sprint tandem gold by beating Australian Kieran Modra and his pilot Jason Niblett. It was their second gold after winning the 1000m time trial earlier.
Triathlon: England dominated as they picked up gold in the mixed team relay. Vicky Holland, Jonathan Brownlee, Jodie Stimpson and Alistair Brownlee all won bronze, silver, and two golds respectively in the individual event.
All the home nations' athletes will be hoping to continue this success on day 4 of the Games.
