Preview – Commonwealth Games

Commonwealth Games

In terms of the medals table, Australia have virtually won the entire thing, which is probably no surprise as they have home advantage. But the members of the home nations can still get some extra golds.

It is in the athletics where most of the action will seemingly take place today. Among the highlights include the women’s shot put, where New Zealand’s Valerie Adams is competing having given birth just six months earlier, while Lynsey Sharp will hoping to take gold in the 800m for Scotland. Later tonight, there is the 4x100m relay and the road cycling.

The Commonwealth Games is on BBC Two at 06.00, then BBC One at 09.15 and again at 23.50.
