Devon's athletes have done the county proud at Delhi's Commonwealth Games.

Tom Daley diving to two gold medals was matched by the drama of Katherine Endacott's elevation from fourth place to silver medal holder in the 100m sprint.

Georgina Geikie secured a shooting bronze while Michaela Breeze won silver in the weightlifting.

Exeter swimmer Liam Tancock won two golds in the 50m and 100m backstroke and on top of that secured the 4 x 100m freestyle relay silver and the 4 x 100m medley relay bronze.

Plymouth teenage diving sensation Tom, 16, dived his way to two gold medals winning the 10m synchro gold with partner Max Brick.

The next day he won the 10m platform diving title with a narrow victory over Australian Olympic champion Matthew Mitcham.

Meanwhile Plymouth swimmer Antony James bagged a silver in the men's 100m butterfly and a bronze in the 4 x 100m medley relay.

Plymouth sprinter Katherine Endacott is also a gold medallist for her part in the 4 x 100m relay but it was her eventual silver, in the 100m sprint, which provided real drama at the games - she originally finished fourth, but the winner was disqualified and the subsequently promoted winner failed a drugs test.

Natalie Melmore, who lives in Newton Abbot and bowls for King's Club in Torquay, won a gold in the women's singles - lawn bowls.

And Ivybridge's Michaela Breeze - who was also Wales team captain -secured a silver in weightlifting's 63kg division before retiring from competition.

Twenty-three-year-old Exeter gymnast Steven Jehu says winning a silver medal in the team event at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi was "one of the best moments of his life".

Jehu and England team-mates Max Whitlock, Luke Folwell, Danny Lawrence and Reiss Beckford were beaten to the gold medal by Australia.

Georgina Geikie from Okehampton - she trains at Okehampton Smallbore Club - won a bronze in the women's pairs 25m pistol shooting event.
