Swimmer Alys Thomas, Para-athlete Hollie Arnold and Wales' men's bowls pair triumphed on day five of the Games.But Peaty was narrowly beaten in the men's 50m breaststroke by South African Cameron van der Burgh.

Another favourite - Jamaica's Yohan Blake - stumbled at the start of the 100m, allowing Akani Simbine and Henricho Bruintjies to make it a South African one-two.Elsewhere, injury ruled http://www.officialwinnipegjetstore.com/authentic-13-brandon-tanev-jersey.html England's Adam Gemili out of the men's 100m, while team-mate http://www.authenticyankeesstore.com/Authentic-Alex-Rodriguez-Jersey Asha Philip came fourth in the women's 100m, which was won by Trinidad & Tobago's Michelle-Lee Ahye.

But Van der Burgh, 29, claimed gold in a time of 26.58 seconds as Peaty clocked 26.62. Peaty's team-mate Vince Coleman Jersey James Wilby was third in 27.37 to claim his third medal of the Games."It was a great race. Credit to Van der Burgh," Peaty Authentic Jakub Voracek Jersey told BBC Sport. "I've been off my best all week.
"In April I'm never this fast so I'll take it as a positive and move on to the Europeans."The 27-year-old swam a Games record of two minutes 5.45 seconds to finish ahead of Australian duo Laura Taylor and Emma McKeon.
"I bet my coach if I did this I could shave his head," Thomas said.
"I'm 27 and this is my first major international medal. I'm finally breaking through now. It says something about being patient when you're young."
Wales team-mate Jazz Carlin, 27, surrendered her 800m freestyle title, finishing sixth as Australian teenager Ariarne Titmus won gold.
England's James Guy, 22, took silver in the men's 100m butterfly final behind South African Chad le Clos, who made it gold in the 50m, 100m and 200m butterfly, and clinched the 16th Commonwealth medal of his career.
Host nation Australia won 15 swimming medals on day five to make it 60 overall in the pool and push their overall total past 100.The Jamaican tried to recover but finished third in 10.19 seconds, behind Bruintjies (10.17) and Simbine (10.03), who claimed his first global title.
Ahye, 25, ran 11.14 in the women's final while Jamaicans Christania Williams (11.21) and Gayon Evans (11.21) took silver and bronze respectively.England's Philip, 27, just missed out on the http://www.buccaneersshopofficialfootball.com/Doug_Martin_Jersey medals in 11.28. Both she and Gemili clocked semi-final times that would have earned a medal in their respective finals."I came fourth in Glasgow, fourth in Australia, it seems to be my favourite number," Philip told BBC Sport."I'm better than this. That's just Trae Waynes Youth jersey shocking to be honest, I should Ryan Hewitt Youth jersey have done better than that."
Earlier, Arnold, 23, set a new world record to win the women's F46 javelin gold. cheap jerseys china wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys from china cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys from china cheap jerseys free shipping wholesale jerseys from china
