Commonwealth Games: Matt Walls involved in major crash at track cycling

The 2022 Commonwealth Games continues today with 28 gold medals up for grabs across a variety of sports. England’s Adam Peaty returned to the pool for the 50m breaststroke heats and set the fastest time to qualify for the next round. IT was a fine response from Peaty after missing out on the medals in yesterday’s 100m finals.

Chris Murray won England’s first gold medal of the day with a fantastic performance in the men’s 81kg weightlifting. He set a new games record by lifting 325kg to edge out Australia’s Kyle Bruce who failed in his final 183kg attempt to finish second behind the Englishman. In the lawn bowls England first defeated Wales before clinging on to win gold by beating Australia 14-12 in the final of the men’s triple.

England and Scotland set the arena alight for the gymnastics. Jake Jarman added an individual floor gold to his team and all-around medals before Joe Fraser smashed his pommel horse routine to win gold ahead of Northern Ireland’s Rhys McClenaghan – the reigning Commonwealth champion. Shannon Archer also made history in women’s vault as she finished with a bronze earning Scotland their first ever medal in artistic gymnastics.

It’s a good looking routine!

Courtney Tulloch was brilliant through the swings, strong in the holds and landed a decent dismount. He looks pleased with the effort but we’ll have to wait for the scores.

14.266 is tough to beat but if anyone can do it, it’ll be the Englishman.

Joe Fraser nails his routine on the high rings for England and comes away with a score of 14.100 to move into the lead. He doesn’t stay there long though as Canada’s Chris Kaji puts in a massive 14.266.

Can the Commonwealth champion Courtney Tulloch beat that?

Thomas Cornish of Australia is the current leader on 1:00.036.

Next up is New Zealand’s Nicholas Kergozou de la Boessiere… he’s quick. Very quick, and Hayden Norris is knocked out of the podium places.
