Aussies have most medals but England ahead on goal difference. Be afraid England in case it goes to penalties.

Scotland is  doing better than Canada. Population of Scotland is what?---5-6 million now?

 

The population of  Canada is about 35 million!.

And since writing the above its now 40 medals and 16 gold for England against 22 medals and 9 gold for Scotland.

 

Table here http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/commonwealth-games/2014/medals/countries

 

Punching above our weight, then, without England doing it on our behalf! :whistle:

England back on top of the Aussies on goal difference although the Aussies have 6 more medals. 1 silver worth more than 6 bronze?

I'm assuming total number of medals counts for nothing, just number of gold first, then number of silver, then bronze.

30 medals for Scotland, brilliant performance after only 3 days. Aussies now stretching away

After a gold in the bowls we have now surpassed our all time record for gold medals. We are also only two medals of our all time record haul of all medals. We have a very good chance of adding quite a few more before the end of the games.

I wonder if Mr Bannerman has anything to say about this latest success for our "athletes"!

Fancy taking part in the next Commonweath games?  The BBC have kindly helped you work out what sport you are most suited for.

I got wrestling.  :blink:

 

And the sport it says I am least cut out for is the only sport I actually participate in.  :laugh:     :sad:   :cry:

It is interesting, but not surprising, that if you show yourself to be hopeless in every respect, it recommends lawn bowls.

Athletics, Shooting & Lawn Balls I am apparently least suited too....

 

Fair enough on the first one, but I have proven to be pretty not bad at the old clay pigeon shooting and have bowled at a decent level.

 

My conclusion.....thank feck the BBC aren't doing the talent scouting for Team Scotland.

Another gold in girls visually impared 100m run takes our total to equal previous record medal haul. The last haul of 33 medals was in Edinburgh in 86. Back then the games were boycotted by the African nations.

I see someone on Twitter has worked out that Coatbridge alone has 15 medals.  That's ahead of Northern Ireland and presumably the People's Republic of Yorkshire!
