2.25am - WA SHOOTER NAILS GOLD MEDAL
WEST Australian Laura Coles has displayed nerves of steel to win a gold medal shoot-off in the women's skeet final at Carnoustie.
Coles, 27, pulled off a huge surprise to take the gold with 14 of 16 shots from Welsh shooter Elena Allen, a 42-year-old former world record holder.
She qualified first after 75 preliminary shots and then went through to a six-person semi-final where she again finished on top. That put her into a 16-shot final, where she won by just a single shot.
She's clearly enjoying her debut Games appearance in the green and gold, as evidencedby her manicure, which she posted a picture of on Facebook.

DESPITE their newfound global fame thanks to a selfie starring the Queen, Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris had to get back to the hard work of playing for the Hockeyroos today.
Well, if you can call a 9-0 win over Wales hard work.
Taylor revealed that despite now being a bona fide social media celebrity, Peris doesn't even have a Twitter account, with Taylor sending out the picture that has since featured on US news networks and the front page of the UK Times.
"We only took two photos but it happened to be right time and right moment," Peris said after the win, Robert Craddock writes.
"They are really hard to get right. We take a lot of selfies. That one was perfect.''
Taylor said she had no idea when she posted the photo on Twitter at 12.24pm on Thursday it would become a global sensation.
"We didn't think it would take off like this. This is pretty awesome. If I had known it would have taken off like this I probably would have worded it a bit differently. I sat down at lunch and my phone ran out of battery because it was up to 500 retweets in half an hour. I thought "far out' this is going insane. It just went beserk.
"It has been absolutely incredible and overwhelming.

12am - ANNA'S LOVING OUR WORK
ANNA Meares was so good in the time trial on Thursday her former arch-rival Victoria Pendleton was one of the first in line to pay tribute.
As revealed by our intrepid reporter Reece Homfray, Pendleton even went as far as to say she'd "love to be her right now".
Not surprisingly, Meares enjoyed the read and told Reece so on Twitter. And who are we to argue?

11.10pm - EDMONDSON SIBLINGS' GOLD BID ALIVE
AUSSIE siblings Alex and Annette Edmondson are into their respective finals and will ride for gold in the individual pursuit overnight, Reece Homfray writes.
The first brother and sister to ride for Australia at a Commonwealth Games, they were both the second fastest qualifiers in the men's and women's race at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome today.
Annette, 22, will race English world champion Joanna Rowsell for gold in the final of the women's 3km IP while her teammate Amy Cure will go head-to-head with Scotland's Katie Archibald in the race for bronze.
Alex, meanwhile, rode 4mins 20secs in the men's 4km IP which was just behind teammate Jack Bobridge who rode 4mins 19secs to make it an all-Australian final.
Their 20-year-old Australian teammate Miles Scotson also impressed on debut with 4:24 which was enough for sixth fastest.
10.50pm - AUSSIE JUDO TRIO TO BATTLE FOR BRONZE
AUSTRALIA will fight for three bronze medals on day two of the judo.
Highly-regarded Katharina Haecker was pinned by Scotland's Sarah Clark in her women's 63kg semi-final and will face England's Faith Pitman in her bronze bout overnight.
A disappointed Jake Bensted (men's 73kg) fell short by a single penalty call against Danny Williams of England in his semi-final. He will claim bronze if he beats Scotland's Patrick Dawson in his next fight.
Meanwhile, lawyer Catherine Arscott (women's 70kg) will take on Canada's Alix Renaud-Roy for bronze after losing to New Zealand's Moira De Villiers in her semi-final.

10.10pm - RECORD-BREAKER GLAETZER DUMPED FROM SPRINT
HE might have broken a Games record and been hailed by Sir Chris Hoy in his first run, but Matthew Glaetzer is out of the track cycling men's sprint event after Englishman Jason Kenny proved too good for him, Reece Homfray writes.
In the first heat of their quarter-final, Kenny gave Glaetzer the slip when he caught him napping, quickly put 15m on him and was never threatened.
Glaetzer took front spot in the second but Kenny showed his class and got the Aussie on the line with a powerful finish.
It was an amazing turnaround from yesterday's qualifying when Glaetzer was fastest in Commonwealth Games record time and Kenny only just made the top-12 when he was 11th.

10pm - GOLDEN GIRLS STILL BANG IN FORM
RELAY golden girls Cate Campbell, Bronte Campbell and Melanie Schlanger overcame a restless night of sleep after their world record triumph to ease through to the 50m freestyle semi-finals.
Cate was second fastest in 24.33s, Bronte placed third in 24.52s and Schlanger was fifth in 24.87s as England's Fran Halsall set the pace in 24.31s.
Emily Seebohm and Belinda Hocking set the pace in the women's 100m backstroke heats, qualifying first and second in 59.51s and 59.78s this morning. Australian swim team rookie Madi Wilson qualified for the semi-finals in 1:01.05 in ninth position.
Gold Coast's Thomas Fraser-Holmes has set himself a chance at double gold tonight, cruising into the final of the 400m medley just over an hour after he qualified for the 200m freestyle final. He was fourth fastest in the 400m heats in 4:15.34, as Australian teammate Travis Mahoney qualified second in 4:14.99.

8.50pm — SHATTERED STRENGER'S STROKE 'A MESS'
WORLD champion Christian Sprenger fears his chances for a golden Commonwealth Games are all but over admitting his stroke is "just a mess at the moment" because of a torn muscle in his shoulder, Todd Balym writes.
The 100m breaststroke star has appeared a shadow of his former self at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre, labouring to eighth in the 200m final and struggling in the heats of his main 100m event, almost four seconds off his best time.
Sprenger said physios believe he has torn muscles in his shoulder and it has completely thrown his stroke and power in the pool to the point that his chances are effectively dead in the water.
"The stroke is just so foreign," Sprenger said. "I'm diving in and pulling out and there's just no drive, there is no power, no efficiency and it's just a challenge.
"I'm mistiming everything … It's just a mess at the moment."

8.30pm — WELSH CO-CAPTAIN FAILS DRUG TEST
THE co-captain of the Wales track and field team, 400m hurdler Rhys Williams, has been kicked out of the Games for failing a drugs test, Scott Gullan writes.
He is the second Welsh athlete inside a week to be suspended for alleged doping offences with 800m runner Gareth Warbuton also banned.
Williams, the current European champion, failed a drug test at the Glasgow Grand Prix two weeks ago.
The 30-year-old won the bronze medal in Delhi four years ago behind fellow Welshman Dai Greene who he succeeded as European champion in 2012 and had only just been named co-captain of the team alongside hammer thrower Carys Parry.

8pm — INSPIRED McEVOY HAS FLYING START
CAMERON McEvoy has used the motivation of Australia's world record breaking women's relay team to make a flying start to his Commonwealth Games campaign this morning, Todd Balym writes.
McEvoy cruised to a 1:46.39 victory in the 200m freestyle to be fastest for tonight's final ahead of teammate Thomas Fraser-Holmes (1:47.01), with 400m silver medallist David McKeon seventh in 1:47.99.
McEvoy said the women's success on the opening night had lifted the entire swim team.
"I was with about 10 of us in the dorm room watching that and it was just so sick. We were yelling and a couple of the other sports came over to find out what it was," McEvoy said.
"I thought it was awesome. Really good."
