But for tonight it is goodbye from the Wales rhythmic gymnastic team and goodbye from me.

Well done everybody, I make that a day well spent.

What to look forward tomorrow then?

08:45 - Shooting: England's Amber Hill, who won the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award in 2013, competes in the women's skeet.

11:00 - Track cycling: World champion Joanna Rowsell will be the favourite for England in the women's individual pursuit, though Canada and Australia will be well represented and Scotland's Katie Archibald has a strong shot at a medal, as does Elinor Barker for Wales.

19:00 - Swimming: A chance to see Michael Jamieson try and make amends for his 200m defeat in the men's 100m breaststroke semi-finals.

"Thanks to Rebecca Cobb aged 7 for this drawing of the velodrome that she did for me today, love the detail!"

Track Cycling

Sir Bradley Wiggins' only Commonwealth Games event ended in silver rather than gold as the England team pursuit squad were well beaten by an impressive Australian quartet.

Later, Wiggins said he would not ride the Tour de France again after telling the BBC that road racing is "cut-throat" with "no kind of loyalty".

England trio Jason Kenny, Philip Hindes and Kian Emadi were beaten by New Zealand in the team sprint final, while Australian Anna Mears romped to 500m time-trial gold,

Danny Singham: Medal table looking fairly solid for England after day one-good job to the athletes!

Wendy Andre: Brilliant first day: England supreme in Triathlon and top of medal table.

Matt Tye: Didn't think I'd be this into the Commonwealth Games but it's been brilliant! And England racking up medals too.

"Not a bad day's work for the Renicks Family! Congratulations @Kimi48Renicks @judolouise5"


The day began with the disappointing news that double Olympic champion Mo Farah had withdrawn from the Games to recover from a recent illness.

"I really wanted to add the Commonwealth titles to my Olympic and World Championships, but the event is coming a few weeks too soon for me," he said.

"My body is telling me it's not ready to race yet."

Medal table

You know that medal table at 22:21? Lies, pure lies.

The Wales rhythmic gymnastic silver medal has not made it's way through the system, that is what we are saying anyway.

This is the true state of affairs with all four of the home nations in the top 11. Lovely stuff.

Stuart in Glasgow: 10 medals on day one? Four Gold! All after an epic opening ceremony! Glasgow has been golden so far, proud to be from this city.


Scotland sent out a powerful message with two convincing wins on the opening day of the team competition. The host nation opened proceedings at the Emirates Arena by thrashing the Seychelles 5-0 and then hammering Guernsey by the same scoreline.

Their dominant performance put them top of Group C alongside New Zealand, their next opponents on Friday, and on course for a place in the quarter-finals.

Men's singles player Kieran Merrilees was among their most impressive performers, playing in both matches and spending a total of 41 minutes on court in winning 2-0 twice.

"We wanted to come in strong and be ready for the tougher matches coming up," he said.

Medal table


So where does that leave the medal standings?

Well after a profitable day in the triathlon in Strathclyde Country Park England are clear at the top.

Scotland mined plenty of precious metal in the pool and are sitting pretty in third.

Gold Medal

Canada - team rhythmic gymnastics


Wales led for much of the competition, but it is Canada who take gold in the team final. The Welsh have to settle for second with Malaysia taking bronze and England fourth.

Scotland finish in seventh with Lauren Brash wrapping up the competition with the final routine.
