Wales' Curtis Dodge and England's Georgina Nelthorpe won Commonwealth bronze medals in freestyle wrestling on day eight on Australia's Gold Coast.

Dodge beat Ebimienfaghe Assizecourt of Nigeria in the men's -74kg medal match while Nelthorpe saw off Sierra Leone's Hajaratu Kamara in the women's 76kg.

But England's George Ramm missed out on a medal in the men's -57kg category.

The wrestling gold medals on day eight went to Canada, with three, and India, as Kumar Sushil won in the men's -74kg.

Olympic champion Erica Wiebe of Canada defended her women's 76kg Commonwealth title in style.

The bronze medal for Dodge - who competed in Judo at the 2014 Games in Glasgow - was Wales' 24th on the Gold Coast.
