  • Camilla Looked Bored Rigid At The Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony

A second surprise triumph for an English athlete over a Scottish rival followed as defending champion Ross Murdoch relinquished his men's 200m breaststroke crown to England's James Wilby.

The face of the Games, Pearson's hopes of a third successive 100m hurdles Commonwealth gold were dashed when she was forced out by a persistent Achilles injury.

Henri Schoeman left England's Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, the Olympic gold and silver-medallists, trailing as the South African won the men's triathlon ahead of Australia's Jacob Birtwhistle.

Australia and New Zealand will fight for gold in the event. "Obviously it hasn't worked out and it's something I have to live with for the rest of my life", the dejected world No.13 Ghosal said after the loss.

Murdoch, a double European champion and World Championships relay gold medallist, earned silver and bronze went to Matt Wilson of Australia.

The women's 4000m pursuit team won New Zealand's first medal of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

With Australia having won most editions of the sporting event, it is not unlikely that the team will perform well at the competition.




Gururaja claimed silver in the Men's 56kg weightlifting event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games handing India its first medal.

Gururaja was inspired by wrestler Sushil Kumar and wanted to take up the sport but his coach taught him how to weightlift.

With Wales needing a win to stay alive in its opening round against India, Hursey partnered Charlotte Carey and produced some big forehands to help in 3-2 victory.

While the men's team defeated Trinidad and Tobago and Northern Ireland in Group 1, the women's team came out on top against Sri Lanka and Wales in Group 2.

He touched first in first place but a referee ruled that he'd moved on the blocks before the start.

Proud challenged the decision but it was upheld by an independent appeals board.
