GLASGOW - Elsabeth Black of Canada secured her country's fourth Gold in the Balance Beam event at a Commonwealth Games.

Black, who performed a solid and difficult routine including a full twisting back flip - scored 14.900 to take the Gold and finished well ahead of the Silver medallist, Mary-Anne Monckton of Australia, who scored 13.666.

Georgina Hockenhull of Wales took the Bronze medal with 13.466 — her country's first medal in the Women's Beam event.

In the Men's Parallel Bars Final, Scotland's Daniel Purvis took the Gold (Scotland's first ever medal in this event) with 15.533 points.

"I'm over the moon" said Daniel. "I didn't expect to get Gold. Just to get a medal in front of this crowd would have been fantastic."
