    We should be winning though, not coming 5th. I know they have potential but this is the commonwealth games FFS. None of the big contenders in athletics are here, USA, Russia, France etc
    I cant wait for Harry Aikines Aryeetey to come through but I just really hope he isnt another Lewis Francis. 3/4 years ago I thought he would be dominating the sport, or at least winning medals. He is miles from that atm
    Martyn did break the GB junior record tho (which was held by Roger Black - who himself turned out to be VERY gd). u cant really ask for THAT much more. he's still got the rest of this year as a Junior. if he stays at 400 he will win the World Juniors, if he moves up to 800 i reckon he'l atlewast medal there. great talent and i don't care what u say about hiom he is a quality dude with great potential we should be cheering him not telling him he should have done better. he sed that he wanted 2 get in the final and thats what he did. fair play to the lad!!!

    She won the womens 400m hurdles...probably the most insignificant event known to man, don't know what the fuss is about, is it just cuz you guys are doing so awful at the games that anyone who can get a medal is seen as a hero?:rolleyes:

    yeah, any re-h-tard can win commonwealth gold.

    I have 15 on my rugby shirt. Because I'm the best kicker in my team. The amount of rugby players who can't kick a ball, even their own ball, jahesus...

    It is a slow game in that the matches last hours but you can look at it differently and compare it to time spent in international tournaments to others for different sports. Like football is usually only 90 minutes but England FC will spend more time winning the World Cup than England will for the Ashes/World Cup.

    It would have to be either 4 or 5 as the row is clearly the best position on the pitch. However, if you are hairy and have a tendency to behave thuggishly, you risk being mistaken for Danny Grewcock. Which is not good.

    Women's hockey on now England vs New Zealand for the Bronze medal, 0-0 at the moment half time, they playing vertigo U2 now.

    Huge big shoutout to our netminder in the Women's Bronze game strokes competition; 2 fantastic stick saves got us the bronze.


    ----

    Netball; a great level of composure in the last minute of time helped us to a superb bronze against Jamacia; AND also noticed the Aussies lost a Commonwealth netball match for the first time ever, as the NZ Silverferns took the Gold.

    ---

    Fantastic results for Gail Emms and Nathan Robertson in the XD Badminton Final; as well as Tracey Hallam in the WS Final --- a golden double.

    ---

    Peter Nicol claimed his second gold of the games, this time in the Squash Men's Doubles. Peter says it's his last Commonwealth Games, indeed it's his last season - certainly going out on a high.

    Generally dull, and I was disappointed at the lack of involvement of the athletes in the ceremony per Manchester 02 and indeed Sydney 00, just sitting at the stands until particularly late on.

    The section from Delhi 2010 was just too long at 11 minutes.


    HOWEVER, Dame Edna's speech on the big screen was a great pee-take, especially at the Americans !! And yes, I was singing along to the lyrics as they bounced along the screen; and the fireworks were impressive.

    Dude thats nasty, a real shame. This serves as a reminder that motorsport is by its nature dangerous and that thousands of drivers risk their lives every weekend.

    oh yes , many seasoned cricketers confess that its a game made to keep busy the people in the erstwhile COLONIES !!!!!!, so that they do not get the time to think about anythig else, like a revolt or anything else, very clever,

    It is a sad thing. Says a lot about the safety record of racing in the USA too. Those concrete walls and limited run offs just aren't right.

    av u won it then?

    the only sport where the medalists from the commenwealth games could not contend with the rest fo the world is the womens Pole Vault as there is Yelena Isinbayeva, Svetlana Feofanova and that very fine polish girl who are dominating the sport at the moment but most of all Isinbayeva who is the current world record holder both indoors and out, the only other person i can think of that could possibly challenge these 3 is Stacey Dragila of the USA but only if she hasnt already retired.
