Team Scotland smashed one of their Commonwealth Games records on Monday and hopes are high that another will tumble on day six.

Alex Marshall and Paul Foster won the lawn bowls men's pairs title to take Scotland's gold medal tally to 12 in Glasgow, eclipsing their previous best of 11 in Melbourne 2006.

Libby Clegg's podium-topping display in the 100m T12 final made it 13 golds, and added to the bronze secured by Jen McIntosh earlier in the day in shooting, Scotland have now equalled their best Commonwealth Games haul of 33 medals.

So the home hopefuls go into day six knowing one more gong will ensure Scotland's best ever performance at a Commonwealth Games comes at Glasgow 2014.
