The colour is yet to be decided but a little after 5.30pm this evening Scotland will have its first medal of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Aileen McGlynn and Louise Haston will take on English duo Sophie Thornhill and Helen Scott in the final of the women's para-sport sprint B tandem at the Sir Chris Hoy Veldrome.

A thrilling morning session saw records fall thick and fast. McGlynn and Haston set a new Commonwealth Games record in the flying 200m during qualifying of 11.419sec.

However, they were usurped only moments later by English pair Thornhill and Scott with a time of 11.277sec.

Which tees up a real nail-biter in the race for gold between the two tandem pairings this afternoon.

The Games record for the flying 200m was broken no fewer than four times in qualifying for the men's sprint with Australia's Matthew Glaetzer posting the fastest time of 9.779sec.

Scotland's Callum Skinner progressed to the final 12 clocking 10.198sec, before losing out to Sam Webster of New Zealand in the first round.

The men's team pursuit will see England and Australia contest the gold medal race with New Zealand and Canada set to do battle for bronze.

Racing will recommence at 4pm this afternoon.
