400m hurdles silver for Scotland's Child
Eilidh Child won a silver medal for Scotland in the women's 400m hurdles at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
The Perth PE teacher posted a time of 55.62 seconds to finish 0.34 behind Muizat Odumosu of Nigeria to take Scotland's medal tally to 15.
"I am just so chuffed I've got a medal," Child told BBC Scotland. "I knew I was capable.
"But you never know how you are going to perform on the big stage, so I am just glad I came away with something."
Child, who will take part in the 4x400m relay on Monday, had not been tipped to finish in the top two but crossed the line ahead of Jamaica's Nickiesha Wilson, who took the bronze, with England's Meghan Beesley in seventh in 58.36.
It was such an amazing feeling. I was surprised I did not cry, but I kept my cool
"I was just trying to focus on my own race and attack each hurdle," said the Scot.
"I have had a problem with my hurdle pattern, so my main aim was to make sure I attack every hurdle.
"I knew that some of them would go out quite hard, but I wanted to make sure I was focused on my own race.
"Coming into the final straight, it was just hell for leather, whatever was left.
"Even when I crossed the line, I did not know where everyone was."
Child was delighted with the experience of picking up her medal.
"It was brilliant," she said. "It was such an amazing feeling. I was surprised I did not cry, but I kept my cool."
Meanwhile, Lee McConnell put 400m disappointment behind her by qualifying for the final of the 200m.
She had finished fifth in her main event but makes a surprise appearance in the final of the shorter distance after coming second in her semi-final.
