Commonwealth Games 2018, Gold Coast: Indians disappoint in lawn bowls events

A third of Cameroon's athletes at Commonwealth Games go missing amid fears they have defected in Australia

"The Cameroon Commonwealth Games Team is sad to announce that eight of the 24 athletes they took to the 21st Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast - Australia are missing from their respective rooms in the Games village", the team said in a statement.

Facebook Australia's daily Facebook Studio Live sessions with Australian and global athletes alongside Facebook videos have been watched by more than seven million people across the globe since the start of the Commonwealth Games last week.

Boxers Anja Stridsman, on a re-built knee, and Skye Nicolson, whose brothers were killed in a auto crash, were among 10 Australian gold medal winners on Saturday.

Veteran David Palmer and Zac Alexander ensured an Australian team would feature in the semi finals after they dispatched New Zealanders Paul Coll and Campbell Grayson 2-1 (11-9, 6-11, 11-7).

At the boxing ring, Stridsman (women's 60kg) and Nicolson (women's 57kg) scored emotional victories.

It was the second Commonwealth Games medal for Hosking, who also won a bronze in the road race in Delhi in 2010.

"Some of the decisions have been really bad lately, for Australia".

A fact-finding mission from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma. He added that the Russian military has proof of British involvement, but didn't immediately present it.

Just two months before the Commonwealth trials past year, Stridsman tore her anterior cruciate ligament during a fight in Poland. "I don't know how they can get away with it", Walsh said.

After securing a Games berth, Stridsman had surgery and the damaged ligament was replaced with an Achilles tendon taken from a corpse.

It capped a mixed day for Australia's doubles teams.

Hosking's five Australian teammates plotted the downfall of her rivals as team tactics delivered gold to the 27-year-old. "There were big changes at CA and at first it was a bit of a slap in the face but when I stopped and listened there was a lot to learn and a lot that I could change to make myself better", she said.

"Something we're trying to do is build the culture with Bowls Australia, and I think we've done that really well", said Wilson, calling for an all-for-one musketeer approach to the game.

Then Georgia Sheehan and Esther Qin picked up Silver and Bronze in the Women's 1m Springboard respectively, before Bedggood was in action again, winning Bronze in the Men's Synchronised 3m Springboard alongside Matthew Carter.

"Six women went into winning this race".
