Shooter Bond earns first GB gold
Sally Bond
Bond shot a personal best in winning the skeet competition
Shooter Sally Bond claimed Britain's first gold medal of the Youth Olympics in Sydney in the skeet discipline.

The 15-year-old shot a personal best to secure a victory which also saw her qualify for the senior women's team.

There was more success for Team GB with Rachel Cawthorn winning two silvers in the canoeing and both the men's and women's gymnastics teams taking bronze.

Cawthorn was second in the K1 500m and hours later teamed up with Louisa Sawers to claim silver in the WK2 500.

In the gymnastics, the British men's team of Daniel Keatings, Louis Smith, Daniel Purvis and Kristian Thomas narrowly missed out on the silver medal, edged out by China and Japan.

In the women's event, 12-year-olds Niamh Rippin, Nicole Hibbert, Danusia Francis and 13-year-old Jordan Lipton beat Australia by the narrowest of margins in a high-quality competition.

British table tennis pair Paul Drinkhall and Darius Knight are assured of a medal after dominating the first day of the men's team event, winning each of the day's four rounds 3-0.

But the badminton team look to have missed out on medals in the team event following a 3-2 defeat by Singapore.
