Hampden's Debut On Day 4 of the 2014 Commonwealth Games


Super Sunday began with Michael Shelley (AUS) winning the Men's Marathon at Glasgow Green. 

Shelley won in 2hr, 11min, 15sec, a personal best. Stephen Chemlany (KEN) took Silver in 2:11:58. Abraham Kiplimo (UGA) won Bronze in 2:12:23.

Flomena Cheyech Daniel (KEN) won the Women's Marathon at Glasgow Green. Daniel won in 2hr, 26min, 45sec. Caroline Kilel (KEN) took Silver in 2:27:10. Jess Trengrove (AUS) took Bronze in 2:30:12.



Steven Scott (ENG) won Shooting Gold with 30 points in the Men's Double Trap Shooting at Barry Buddon Shooting Centre. Matthew French (ENG) took Silver with 29 points, and Asab Mohd (IND) took Bronze with 26 points.

Charlotte Kerwood (ENG) won Shooting Gold with 94 points in the Women's Double Trap at Barry Buddon Shooting Centre. Shreyasi Singh (IND) won Silver with 92 points. Rachel Parish (ENG) won Bronze with 91 points.


Scotland's youngest Games athlete Erraid Davies delighted the crowd as Commonwealth Games records tumbled - including one that had stood for 36 years - at Tollcross International Swimming Centre.

Davies, at just 13, made an assured Games debut, finishing third in the Women's Para-Sport 100m Breaststroke SB9, behind New Zealand's Sophie Pascoe (NZL).

Jazz Carlin (WAL) smashed the Women's 800m Freestyle record, set by Australia's Tracey Wickham at the Edmonton 1978 Commonwealth Games, with an electrifying swim of 8min, 22.69sec -  two seconds quicker than Wickham's mark.

Carlin was 02.16sec ahead of second-placed Lauren Boyle (NZL) in her heat and will now be aiming to add a golden gleam to her record-breaking effort in tonight's night's medal race.

Rugby Sevens 

South Africa won Rugby Sevens Gold for the first time with a score of 17-12, ending New Zealand's unbeaten streak in the competition.

New Zealand had never before lost a Rugby Sevens match at the Commonwealth Games, a run of 30 matches until Sunday's final defeat.

South Africa won its third medal in this event, after Bronze medals in 2002 and 2010.


England's Nick Matthew is one win away from defending his Commonwealth Games Squash title after beating countryman Peter Barker in the Men's Singles Semi-finals at Scotstoun Sports Campus. 

Matthew, the No.1 seed, won 3-0 (11-3 13-11 11-6) and now faces winner of the other Semi-final, No.2 seed James Willstrop (ENG).   


No.1 seed Malaysia marched into the final of the Badminton Mixed Team event on Sunday after Singapore's men failed to win any of their matches in an enthralling 3-2 tie at the Emirates Arena.

The ticket to Monday evening's showpiece rested on the final match of the tie between Mixed doubles pairs Chan Peng Soon/Pei Jing Lai (MAS) and Danny Chrisnanta/Vanessa Neo (SIN).

The Malaysian pair had given up the only rubber to Scotland in Saturday evening's Quarter-final and went point-for-point in the first game until a series of superb cross-court shots sealed it for Singapore at 21-17, rattling the event favourites.


Australia and Kenya divided the four gold medals on offer as Athletics got under way yesterday. 

After Michael Shelley (AUS) and Flomena Cheyech Daniel (KEN) won the Men's and Women's Marathons, the action moved to Hampden Park where Jodi Elkington (AUS) won the T37/38 Long Jump before Caleb Mwangangi Ndiku (KEN) raced home in the final lap to win the Men's 5000m Gold.

Caleb Mwangangi Ndiku (KEN) and Isiah Kiplangat Koech (KEN) claimed Gold and Silver respectively in Men’s 5000m on Sunday, to bring Kenya's 200th medal in Games history.

Kenya is the ninth team to reach the mark of 200 medals at the Commonwealth Games, and has now captured 12 of the last 15 medals awarded in the Men's 5000m. 

Zane Robertson (NZL) grabbed Bronze, New Zealand’s first ever medal in the 5000m event (Men’s or Women’s) at the Commonwealth Games.

Robertson became the second non-African athlete in the last 20 years to reach the podium in the Men's 5000m, alongside Craig Mottram (AUS). Mottram claimed Silver in 2006.


The Australian women and New Zealand men werethe toast of the Glasgow 2014 Track Cycling competition at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.

The Australian women out-medalled England's 10-6, while the New Zealand men finished with 11 to Australia's 10.

Anna Meares' (AUS) hunt for medals was one of the highlights of the four days of competition.

Meares' win in the 500m Time Trial on Day 1 was her fifth Games Gold, drawing her level with countryman Bradley McGee for the most Gold medals won by any Commonwealth Games cyclist.

She followed that up with a Silver in the sprint, giving her eight Games medals overall. That ties her with New Zealand cyclist Gary Anderson for most medals of any kind.

Stephanie Morton (AUS), Meares' room-mate and heir to her throne, defeated Meares in the Sprint Final.

Meares will not give up that throne easily, however, vowing to go on until at least the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and possibly also the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Morton, Annette Edmondson (AUS) and Amy Cure (AUS) took home a combined six medals.

Lawn Bowls

Jo Edwards (NZL) defeated defending champion Natalie Melmore (ENG) 21-15 to win the Women's Singles Gold medal at Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls Centre on Sunday.

Melmore claimed silver and Colleen Piketh (RSA) won Bronze by defeating Catherine McMillen (NIR) 21-10 in the medal match. 


Indian debutant Sathish Sivalingam broke the Commonwealth Games record for the Snatch with a mark of 149kg and kept his nerve on the way to Gold in the Men's 77kg Weightlifting at the Clyde Auditorium on Sunday.

His rivals had brief hope in the Clean and Jerk, but his second lift of 179kg sealed a total of 328kg and India's fifth Weightlifting Gold of Glasgow 2014.
