Two golds for Scotland at Melbourne!
Scotland won two Gold Medals today at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne! BBC link: Caitlin McClatchey, 20, won the 200m freestyle, while David Carry, 24, took first place in the 400m freestyle; there's a video link there so you can watch both performances and the flag ceremony at the end. As David Carry said when he was interviewed just after winning his event, it's not every day that Scotland is at the top of any medal league table, so it's worth a mention. Well done to the two of them!
