The final day of competition at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow was full of action as Team England’s Lizzy Armitsted began the morning with gold and Emma Pooley signed off a glittering career with a silver in the Women’s Road Race.
The afternoon brought success in the men’s road race as Team Wales’ Geraint Thomas, despite the late drama of a punctured wheel, took gold in a tough and gruelling road race epitomised by the rain start to finish. There were also medals in Hockey, Squash and Badminton as the home nations secured a clean sweep in the mixed doubles.
As the day drew to a close, teams England, Scotland and Wales surpassed their best ever medal hauls as they brought home a collective 276 medals, made up of 84 gold, 89 silver and 103 bronze.
Many a star were born at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, with plenty of iconic moments from boxing to athletics and lasting memories from the mats to the pool created by the home nations, their athletes and their competitors as the home nations delivered resounding success on the Commonwealth stage.
