Glasgow 2014 round-up: Day Six

The Commonwealth Games is 11 days of non-stop action.

With 4,000 athletes, 261 medal ceremonies and 71 teams, it can be easy to lose track.

But, don't worry, as each day passes we'll give you a round-up of the winners, the losers, and what's going on social media.

So, here's what happened today.


The Winners

It was a day of hitting milestones for Team Scotland. The men's team gymnastics silver brought up a record Commonwealth Games medal tally of 34.

Jen McIntosh then shot Scotland to silver and took the team past their target haul of medals for the Glasgow Games. At the same time she became the first Scottish woman to reach a lifetime total of five medals, beating her mother's record.

It was then Dan Wallace's turn to scoop silver in the pool, following a crowd-pleasing kilted entry.

The final medal of the day came at Hampden, with a bronze in the hammer throw for Mark Dry.


The Losers

Why do badminton things happen to good people?

Official Jim Gauld was hit in the face by a shuttlecock after a miss-hit shot by Kenya's Joseph Matheri Githitu.

He managed to laugh about it, but must have thought: "This is going to go on Youtube, isn't it?"

Githitu went on to lose the match to Jeff Tho of Australia 2-0, and the footage did indeed keep doing the rounds on Day Six.


The Medal Table

Scotland powered on to a total of 37 medals, but dropped back to fourth as Canada saw success in the pool and on the track.

Australia are top after six days of competition, hitting an impressive total of 101 medals.

England are second on 93, Wales had a good day and lie in ninth, while Northern Ireland are 18th.
