Medal tableEdit

The ranking in this table is consistent with International Olympic Committee convention in its published medal tables. By default, the table is ordered by the number of gold medals the athletes from a nation have won (in this context, a "nation" is an entity represented by a Commonwealth Games Association). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals. If nations are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically by their three-letter country code. Australia came in first in the medal table rank with 80 gold, the second being England with 45 gold, and the third being India with 26 gold.

Two bronze medals were awarded in boxing. In four events of Wrestling, only five nations entered the event, per Commonwealth Games regulations, only one bronze medal was available. No bronze medal was awarded in the Women's 50 metre butterfly S7, Women's Powerlifting heavyweight and the Women's Wrestling freestyle 50 kg as only four athletes competed in the event per Commonwealth Games regulations, the bronze medal was not available. At Women's tandem sprint B and the Women's tandem 1 km time trial B only one gold medal was available, as only three nations entered the event.

Additionally, two silver medals were awarded in the men's gymnastics horizontal bar, Swimming Men's 100 metre freestyle and the Women's 50 metre freestyle as a result of a tie between two athletes. Therefore, the total number of bronze medals is greater than the total number of gold or silver medals.
