New Zealand secured a second gold in Delhi courtesy of Valerie Adams, which was never in doubt, but it was only one of two medals on day six for the team.

The only other Kiwis on the podium were Greg Yelavich and Allan Earle who took out silver in the centrefire pistol teams event, Yelavich's 12th Commonwealth Games medal.

Day six saw the end of swimming for another four years and New Zealand failed to add to their tally of six medals, the biggest haul since Victoria in 1994.

Australian swimmer Leisel Jones finished the meet with three gold medals, one more than the entire New Zealand team so far in Delhi.
