A glorious final day in the Boxing Ring has seen Northern Ireland record its best ever medal haul at the Commonwealth Games.

Athletes have won a total of 18 medals across boxing, athletics, swimming, gymnastics and judo, which is three more than the previous record set at Edinburgh 46 years ago in 1986.

As has often been the case it was the boxing ring that proved the best hunting ground for precious metal with Aidan and Michaela Walsh, Amy Broadhurst, Dylan Eagleson and Jude Gallagher all winning Gold; Carly McNaul taking Silver and Eireann Nugent landing a bronze.

Their triumphs were backed up last night when Ciara Mageean took Silver in the 1500 metres, adding to the same medal that Kate O’Connor had won in the Heptathlon.

Bethany Firth, Daniel Wiffen and Barry McClements took Gold, Silver and Bronze respectively in swimming and para-swimming, while Rhy McClenaghan’s silver and Nathon Burns and Yasmin Javadian’s bronzes in Judo rounded out the record haul.

Attention now turns to the European Championships in a number of different sports including Athletics and Gymnastics, Cycling, Rowing and Triathlon which get underway in Munich later this week.
