New Zealand athletes at the Commonwealth Games have had a blinder overnight and this morning - winning
five medals - three of them gold. Andrew Jeffcoat won the men's 50m backstroke, bringing the swimmers' medal haul to eight in total -  five gold, two silver and one bronze. And the cycling team won another four medals, two of them gold, on the final day of track cycling. Elsewhere squash stars Joelle King and Paul Coll won their singles matches to advance to the semi-finals and the women's lawn bowls fours are in contention for bronze.
