Australian sisters Natalie and Rachael Grinham have won gold in the Women's Doubles Squash match, and have each won a medal in the Mixed Doubles, after they earlier won gold and silver respectively in the Women's Singles.

In the Squash Mixed Doubles, Australia’s Natalie Grinham and Joseph Kneipp took the gold medal after they defeated the No. 4 seeds, England’s Vicky Botwright and James Willstrop.

Natalie Grinham and Kneipp lost the first game to England 6-9 but came back very well in the following three games, 9-6, 9-5 and 9-6.

Natalie’s sister Rachael Grinham and her team mate David Palmer won over New Zealand’s Shelley Kitchen and Glen Wilson in the bronze match, 3-0.

It was an easy win for Rachael Grinham and Palmer as they clinched the bronze within half an hour.

The two sisters have also won the Women’s Doubles Final against New Zealand’s Shelley Kitchen and Tamsyn Leevey, who take home silver medals.

After their win, the sisters were extremely happy with their dominant performance.

"It's unbelievable, I have no words.  After a shower and a break it will sink in and I will probably be screaming from the rooftops," said Natalie.

"We know each other so well.  We have an advantage over most teams as our communication is always there. It's really great for us," said Rachael after her win.

Natalie and Rachael Grinham battled each other for the gold and silver in the earlier Women’s Singles, with Natalie taking the top podium.
