GOLD COAST: Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan won a historic bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games after beating Welshman Joel Makin in the playoff.

No Malaysian man has ever won a medal in men's singles at the Games with former world No. 10 Mohd Azlan Iskandar coming closest with a fourth placed finish at the 2010 New Delhi Games.
