Then Georgia Sheehan and Esther Qin picked up Silver and Bronze in the Women's 1m Springboard respectively, before Bedggood was in action again, winning Bronze in the Men's Synchronised 3m Springboard alongside Matthew Carter. Indian shooters continue to delight and win medals.

Kenyans Conseslus Kipruto, Abraham Kibiwott and Amos Kirui swept the 3000m steeplechase medals - remarkably, the sixth consecutive Games the nation has achieved the trifecta.

The African nation has achieved the feat for the sixth straight time in the event at the Commonwealth Games. It was the ideal tonic the boxer needed to do the one thing she hasn't done yet - win a medal at the Commonwealth Games. "I didn't come here for that", Charig told BBC Sport. "The panel will be appointed after the Games", AFI Secretary C K Valson said after the CGF court stripped them of their accreditation and asked them to leave for India.

New Zealand thrashed Kenya 45-0.

Table Tennis: Mouma Das and Manika Batra reached the finals of the women's doubles and assured another medal for India.

Divya carried the weight of high expectations into a small but competitive field in her maiden appearance at the Commonwealth Games, especially on the back of a good showing at both the senior nationals and the Asian Championships over the past year. "Basically there is a lot of confusion around the whole episode". They won 3 Gold, 2 Silver and 1 Bronze medal on Day 9 of the competitions today, taking India's overall tally to 17 Gold, 9 Silver and 12 Bronze. She's already won the 1,500 here. After winning six she is now focused on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.


"I was fully expecting this medal because I have been doing it in other tournaments. The game is about scoring the goals and we don't do that enough", a disappointed coach Sjoerd Marijne said after the match. The 27-year-old Morton won three gold medals after victorious rides in the women's keirin, sprint and team sprint with McCullock, 30, who also won gold herself in the women's 500m time trial.

Kom, who went from a poor village life to sports stardom and celebrity, has three sons - twin boys aged 10 and another of five.

The 25-year-old will try to clinch gold in the 800m later on Friday. He recently won a gold medal at the ISSF Junior World Cup in Sydney where he finished atop the podium in the same event. Jamaica take Gold, Nigeria 2nd, Botswana 3rd.

In the Men's 97kg freestyle Umair Ahmad of Pakistan lost to Jordan Steem of Canada on 11-0 in the semi-finals.

Home favourites Domonic Bedggood and Declan Stacey took the bronze. This is the seventh CWG medal for Tejaswini, following two golds in 2006, a pair of silvers and a bronze in 2010 and a silver in women's 50m rifle prone in the ongoing edition.
