Hamish Kerr and Paul Coll have claimed New Zealand's latest gold medals at the Commonwealth Games in the high jump and men's squash singles events.

The golds were New Zealand's third of the day, after Sam Gaze took top honours in the the mountain biking cross-country final, while Ben Oliver won silver in the event.

Hamish Kerr won the men's high jump final, recording a jump of 2.25m to beat out reigning champion Brandon Starc of Australia.

Starc, the brother of Australian cricketer Mitchell Starc, secured the silver medal while India's Tejaswin Shankar took out the bronze medal in the event.

Kerr's gold is New Zealand's first medal of any colour in the men's high jump.

He told Sky Sport he was delighted.

"It seems like a long time coming, I knew I was coming in with some pretty good form but at the same time to get it done it's amazing ... the stadium is awesome and I just really let that take me so yeah I'm in shock," Kerr said.
