Gianni Verschueren@ReverschPassFeatured ColumnistJuly 29, 2014

Tuesday's 2014 Commonwealth Games action saw winners crowned in seven different sports (athletics, gymnastics, weight lifting, cycling, shooting, swimming and wrestling), with a total of 30 gold medals handed out to the athletes in Glasgow, Scotland.

There was controversy on the track, more home nations' glory in the pool and a new medal record for one of the athletes competing for host nation Scotland, as Day 6 of this year's Commonwealth Games proved to be one of the most exciting yet.

Here's the full list for every medal won on Tuesday:

Ben Proud Grabs Sprint Double

Perhaps inspired by team-mate Fran Halsall's double in the swimming sprint, England's Proud built on his gold medal in the 50-metre butterfly on the first day of competition and swam to his second gold of the Games in the 50-metre freestyle on Tuesday.

His time of 21.92 seconds was slower than the new Commonwealth Games record he swam in the qualifiers, but it was still fast enough to hold off Australia's Cameron McEvoy and James Magnussen. BBC's Nick Hope shared this photo of the podium:

Proud told the Plymouth Herald his medal haul in Glasgow was "amazing," but with an eye on the upcoming European Championships, he won't be celebrating his two gold medals too much:

I’m probably going to have a day off and then get back into training. I enjoy swimming. I’m still at my peak right now so I might as well keep on for a couple more weeks and then have a little bit of a summer.

[...] It was amazing. I just wanted to gain some experience and race against some great swimmers. That’s what I was looking forward to. I was just looking to get to the final and see from there. But it’s great to come away with another gold.

Retired swimmer Mark Foster immediately congratulated him on his excellent performance:

Wales' Georgia Davies also swam to a gold medal in the 50-metre backstroke, with England's Lauren Quigley coming in second. Jazz Carlin (silver), Dan Wallace (silver) and Dan Jervis (bronze) only added to what was a strong day for the home nations' swimming teams.

But Proud's unexpected double will be the talk of the town, and rightfully so. The 19-year-old is in excellent form, a great sign with the European Championships just a month away.


Jen McIntosh Sets New Scottish Female Medal Record

The new Scottish female record-holder for most Commonwealth Games medals is 23 years old.

McIntosh won the silver in Tuesday's 50-metre three positions rifle event, the fifth medal of her young career. That's one more than her mother, Shirley McIntosh, who retired with four in 2008 and was awarded an MBE for her efforts.

The younger McIntosh appeared very calm when speaking to BBC Sport, before the realization of what she had just done kicked in:

That's pretty cool at 23 - I could be doing this when I'm 40.

[...] Absolutely incredible. I'm totally blown away by it all. Shooting, done well, can be a really spectator-friendly sport. I really hope this gives shooting a higher awareness in the countries because it is a really enjoyable sport to watch. The crowd has been fantastic. The dream's still an Olympic medal; onwards and upwards to Rio.

Team Scotland shared this photo of the 23-year-old with her record-breaking silver medal:

British Shooting congratulated the young athlete:

And when the realization of her performance finally kicked in, McIntosh had to fight to hold back the tears, via the Scottish Sun:

McIntosh can realistically compete for another 20 years before she calls it a career. Already Scotland's most decorated female athlete at the Commonwealth games, this youngster will likely continue adding to her impressive tally.


Andrew Osagie Furious After 800M Disqualification

Osagie tangled with Wales' Joe Thomas in the final 20 metres of the 800-metre heats, with the Englishman appearing to resort to the use of his elbows to block his opponent from taking him over twice.

Thomas was trapped behind the two race leaders and tried to dive into a gap, but Osagie moved in front of his Welsh opponent to stay in third. After some words between both athletes and a lengthy deliberation, officials decided to disqualify the world indoor bronze medalist.

Osagie clearly disagreed, via his personal Twitter account:

Speaking to BBC Sport, Thomas saw things differently:

"I was waiting for a gap to open up and Osagie came across and held his elbows up to try to slow me down," said Thomas. "Just before the line, there was a fall when he lost his balance. I think he ran out of legs but it's hard to tell."

To make matters worse, Thomas had already qualified for the semi-finals before Osagie's disqualification, as the Welshman would have made it through as fastest loser. Osagie would have been an automatic qualifier had his third-place result stood, but now he won't be running in the semi-finals at all.

Journalist Mark Woods says Team Wales never requested for Osagie to be disqualified:

While the outcome of the eventual decision is harsh, there's no denying Osagie was very liberal with his elbow-use and had no need to cross into the first lane to cut Thomas off. The fact the officials had the courage to make this decision in front of a fiery crowd should speak to the actual incident as well.

Osagie will understandably feel hard done by, but hopefully the 26-year-old can learn from this experience and not make the same mistake again.

The 2014 Commonwealth Games will continue on Wednesday, with medals to be won in athletics, diving, gymnastics, weightlifting and wrestling.
