That haul is good enough for seventh place in the current overall medal table.

There is representation in 4 sports in Birmingham on Saturday, 6 August.

They are guaranteed at least two bronze medals in boxing, as there are two boxers in the semi-finals and the losing semi-finalist receives a bronze.

However, Simnikiwe Bongco and Philokuhle Mnguni will be looking for more than bronze, though!
