Team Scotland add two more medals with silver in gymnastics and bronze in wrestling

The medals kept coming in the gymnastics arena on Day 7 as Daniel Keatings took another historic silver for Scotland in the individual all-around finals in Glasgow.

Another historic medal came from the wrestling with Scotland's Viorel Etko claiming the bronze at the SECC Precinct.  Etko's bronze in the men's 61Kg freestyle is the first wrestling medal in 20 years.

Today's medals takes Scotland's tally to 39, six more than its best result in Edinburgh 1986.

In the gymnastics at The Hydro, England's Max Whitlock topped the overall rankings to take gold, adding to his men's team win yesterday. Keatings claimed the silver with just 0.333 separating him and third place Nile Wilson of England. Scotland's Daniel Purvis was fourth.

No Scottish man has ever won an individual all-around medal before at the Commonwealth Games.

The gymnastics action continues tomorrow and Friday when five Scots will contest individual apparatus finals.

Keatings is set to compete on floor, pommel horse and high bar, Purvis on pommel horse, parallel bars and rings, Baines on high bar, parallel bars and vault, while Adam Cox will contest the vault. Emma White will represent Scotland in the women's vault final.

In the 3.000m steeplechase final, Eilish McColgan, daughter of  Commonwealth medalist Liz, finished in sixth place after a season of health problems.
