THERE was disappointment for swimmer Dan Wallace and para-powerlifter Micky Yule as they missed out on medals at the Commonwealth Games this morning (Tuesday). 

Wallace finished sixth in the 200m individual medley (IM), while Wallyford's Yule was fourth in the men's heavyweight para-powerlifting.

A massive lift of 201kg saw Yule narrowly miss out, finishing fourth - the same place he finished in Glasgow four years ago. 

Nigeria's Abdulazeez Ibrahim took the gold while Yee Khie Jong (Malaysia) took silver. 

Wallace, meanwhile, was off the pace as Australian Mitch Larkin stormed to victory in 1:57.67 - a new Games record.

Wallace's Scotland team-mate Duncan Scott took silver, while Clyde Lewis, also of Australia, pipped Scotland's Mark Szaranek to the bronze medal. 

Wallace's  time of 1:59.85 was good enough only to see him finish ahead of New Zealand's Lewis Clareburt and Wales' Xavier Castelli.
