WEIGHTLIFTER Apolonia Vaivai led Team Fiji's campaign on Day 7 of the Commonwealth Games last night and early this morning in Glasgow, Scotland.

Vaivai was to compete in the women's 75 kilogram category.

The Levuka lass, who has been training at the Oceania Weightlifting Institute in New Caledonia, is aiming for a top 10 finish in the games.

Vaivai improved on performance significantly after winning silver medal in the Oceania Championship earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Fijian shooter Glen Kable managed eleventh place finish in the men's trap shooting event.

He was scheduled to participate in the qualification round of the competition late yesterday.

In lawn bowling, the women's triples team will take on Canada and Cook Islands while the men's fours side will play Wales after recording an impressive win over Kenya 17-7 in the first match.

In the men's singles, Samuela Tuikiligana will play Abdul Rais of Malaysia.

As of yesterday afternoon, Australia led the medal tally on 30 gold, 25 silver and 32 bronze medals followed by England with 27 gold, 24 silver and 23 bronze medals.
