    In which event(s)? :holmes:
    Judo.. 25 medals already won by these two countries in two days. And this is a event which has not even been included in the past two Games. You can clearly see in some matches that the opponents have been given penalty after penalty.

    Yes they do. Cycling has Commissars, Swimming has multiple umpires and officials, as does shooting. No sport takes place without officials watching over them to make sure the rules are obeyed.

    Any of the countless events they've not gotten a medal in, there have been many. But generally, there won't be too many as they, along with Australia, are by far and away the strongest teams in the Commonwealth. That's not a bias, that's simply playing to form.

    Cycling do. They are all in the centre, some watching replays and then they singal from the side as well. The guys in suits. Swimming will be at the side as well monitoring the action and the volunteers who make sure that competitors touch the wall properly (mainly for the tumble turns). Shooting I haven't watched but there will be officials there.

    Can't comment on Judo as I haven't been watching it. Although surely Wales and Northern Ireland should also be receiving 'home' advantage being part of the UK.
