Australian coach Lisa Alexander made only two changes to her starting seven that beat Barbados by 50 goals with captain Laura Geitz and Julie Corletto starting at goal keeper and goal defence, respectively.

Australia top group to set up Quarter-Final date with Wales at Commonwealth Games

Australian Men’s Sevens Head Coach Geraint John said “the day could not have gone any better” after his side beat England, Uganda and Sri Lanka on Day One at the XX Commonwealth Games overnight. Australia will play Wales for a place in the Medal matches at 9.28pm on Sunday evening (AEST) after topping Pool D at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow.

CWG 2014: Indian girls grab Gold and Silver in 10m Air Rifle

Apurvi Chandela and Ananya Paul secured Gold and Silver respectively for India in the Women's 10m Air Rifle shooting final at the 2014 Commonwealth Games today.

Chandela, who set a new Commonwealth Games Record with a score of 415 in the qualifying rounds, dominated the Final from start to finish, never losing her spot at the top of the leaderboard. In sharp contrast, Paul made a poor start to the competition, shooting only a 30.2 from her first three shots in the Final and was often faced with the threat of elimination, but showed tremendous poise in the face of adversity to battle her way up the leaderboard and grab the Silver medal with a final score of 204.9, well behind Chandela's effort of 206.7.

Mohamed Taibi of Malaysia took the Bronze in what was an exceptionally exciting finish.
