Commonwealth Games 2022: Day 8 Laugher and Harding Win Gold in Athletics and More – LIVE! | | Commonwealth Games 2022

important event

decathlon: The men’s decathlon is also getting excited with the remaining 3 events. We tackle pole vaulting, but it’s always fun to face it. I love seeing that pole bend and twang.

After seven events, defending champion Lyndon Victor of Grenada leads the pack with 5989 points.

This is 52 points ahead of Australian Cedric Dubler, who leads compatriot Daniel Golubovich by 70 points.

Long jump: England’s Abigail Irozul fouled twice in her long jump heat, and both times saw the dreaded red flags. She will make a nervous third jump…

Teammates Jazmin Sawyers and Lorraine Ugen made it to the finals. Can Irozuru join them? She can!

A jump of 6.59 put the 32-year-old into the finals. She still pushed the clay (is that a phrase?) but just inches from another foul and brave. A trio of British jumpers in the final.

Netball: A blast of “Uptown Funk” from the NEC arena between Scotland and Northern Ireland. As the players came up for the third quarter, the sounds of Mark Ronson and his cronies were soon replaced by rat-like squealing and trainers squealing on the lacquered court floor. A tight game, Scotland now lead their Celtic rivals 25-21.

Athletics: Great comments from Steve Crum when he called the next women’s 1500m heat. Finish Her line had a body wall and Scotland’s Jemmary Key was struggling to find a way out of the puck on the line. 6th place. It looks like she might miss out on qualifying.

England’s Katie Snowden and Australia’s Jessica Hull, who are in the final alongside Uganda’s Winnie Nanyondo, Kenya’s Winnie Chebet and Canada’s Lucia Stafford, have no such problem.

Athletics: Television coverage is a bit delayed, but it did show that Scotland’s Laura Muir finished fourth in the 1500m qualifying. She will advance to Sunday’s final with her time of 4:14.11.

Thanks Luke and g’day guys. Another full day in Birmingham with all the devices sending out various track, field and error bowl events. let’s do this

it’s all from me For the time being, I’ll leave you in the capable hands of James Wallace for the next bit.

Tonia CouchAs a commentator for the BBC, I sympathize with Laugher’s plight with not being able to sleep last night. All this reminds me of a good story from Asif Kapadia’s Maradona documentary: a teammate he roomed with before the 1986 World Cup final (I can’t remember his name now) was a big match. He described how Maradona said the night before : ‘I have a game tomorrow, let’s go to bed’ and two minutes later I was snoring. I think he has a winning mentality.

Jack Laugher Speaking to the BBC after winning his second gold medal in a matter of days:Last night, and buzz and excitement doing very well at 1m …I hope you get a good night’s sleep tonight. ”

Anthony Harding You will be asked how you feel you have coped with the pressure. i could have been better. The last few years have been tough…I’ve worked hard so I’ve had to be patient…Thanks to Jack for trusting me…I hope I can do better. ”
