Breen's gold was Wales' third of the 2018 Games following weightlifter Gareth Evans and cyclist Elinor Barker.

The four medals took Wales' tally to double figures with at least two more podium positions guaranteed.

Daniels' fellow bowler Marc Wyatt and Daniel Salmon will win at least silver in the men's pairs, while boxer Rosie Eccles will leave Australia with the minimum of a bronze.

Squash duo Tesni Evans and Joel Makin will play for bronze medals on Monday after losing singles semi-finals to England's Sarah-Jane Parker and Paul Coll of New Zealand. Evans was beaten 3-0 while Makin was agonisingly defeated 3-2, despite being 2-0 up.

Commonwealth Games: Olivia Breen joy at 'amazing' Games gold

Breen repeated her London 2017 victory over Australia's Erin Cleaver in the T38 long jump.

She beat Cleaver to gold at the World Para-athletics Championships in London by 20cm, and the victory was more conclusive this time around with a winning margin of half a metre.

The Guildford-born athlete contracted a meningitis-type illness at birth and was diagnosed with cerebral palsy aged two.

Breen said: "It is a dream come true.

"After the Paralympics in Rio, Commonwealth Games was my aim and I have done it and I am so happy.

"With the last jump I just went for it after three no-jumps and I hit it."

Wales' Davies claims bronze in 20km race walk

Davies finished three minutes 18 seconds behind gold medallist Jemima Montag of Australia in the 20km race walk.

The 27-year-old spent much of the race in fourth place, before race leader Claire Tallent of Australia was disqualified with two kilometres left.

"I was aware they had a few cards and kept to my own pace," said Davies.

"I just did my own thing and hope someone on the front came unstuck and they did."

Heather Lewis finished seventh, a position also occupied by hammer thrower Osian Jones.

Commonwealth Games: Wales' Daniels 'proud' of Games bowls silver

Daniels had led 17-13 in the women's bowls final before New Zealander Edwards stepped up her performance.

"It started off well and I managed to get ahead but at this level I know that is never the case for very long," said Daniels.

"I never thought it was mine because I know the calibre of Jo. She came back at me and I had a few loose ends which probably cost me the gold medal."

Daniels' fellow bowlers Wyatt and Salmon had earlier guaranteed themselves at least silver after winning their men's pairs semi-finals against the Cook Islands.

The Welsh pair play Scottish duo Paul Foster and Alexander Marshall in the early hours of Monday morning for gold.

Boxer Eccles is also guaranteed at least a bronze after defeating Tongan flag bearer Magan Maka in the women's 69kg quarter-final and the Cardiff University student will fight for a final place on Wednesday against Australian Kaye Scott.

Lynsey Holdaway was defeated by Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in the 48kg quarter-final, while Billy Edwards lost to Zambian Nkumbu Silungwe.
