At the end of Day 10, Aotearoa’s tally is 19 gold, 12 silver, and 17 bronze for a total of 48.

Cyclist Aaron Gate won his fourth gold of the games in the men’s road race yesterday while squash duo Paul Coll and Joelle King beat England in the mixed doubles.

Waatea correspondent Jodi Ihaka said her highlight of the day was Aotearoa’s beach volleyball match against Vanuatu, although she missed bronze.

“The crowd was leaving. The supporters were incredible. They have the chants that are like ‘fly, fly, fly’ or ‘oi, oi, oi’, except for New Zealand, we went hard to Aotearoa and it was ‘tutira mai nga aue’, and that’ was pretty special, pretty, pretty awesome,” she says.
