Jeux du Commonwealth: DOUBLES



New Zealand’s Joelle King equalled Rachael Grinham’s record as the most decorated female squash player in Commonwealth Games history (8 médailles) as she and Amanda Landers-Murphy defended their 2018 women’s doubles title against England, who ended the day with a gold and two silvers after Declan James and James Willstrop beat Daryl Selby and Adrian Waller in an all-English men’s doubles final.

In the bronze medal matches, Scotland won their first medal since 1998 with an entertaining win over Malaysia, who picked up a medal of their own in an all-Malaysia women’s doubles clash.

King, alongside this year’s men’s singles champion Paul Coll also won a mixed doubles gold yesterday.
