Gold medalist out of Games

Commonwealth Games shooting gold medallist Nur Ayuni Farhana Abdul Halim of Malaysia has been left devastated after being ruled out of competing in Glasgow because her competition jacket was lost en route to Scotland.

Ayuni, who won the gold medal in the 10 metre air rifle pairs in New Delhi four years ago, was due to compete in the 10 metre air rifle and 50m rifle prone events.

Team manager Musa Omar says he was left with no choice but to withdraw Ayuni from competition after the missing luggage, believed to be in London, failed to show in time for Monday's registration ahead of the start of competition.

The rules state that a rifle shooter must wear a jacket and the Malaysian manager says they tried to make a new one but she said that she would need two months to get used to it.
