The Glasgow 2014 XX Commonwealth Games | Day 9 – Highlights

Hello everyone, and welcome to the first blog post for August!!! Today has been such a perfect start for all of us, as we are still in front, placing first place on the medal table with an overall medal count of 140 medals (48 Gold, 49 Silver and 43 Bronze). Australia also face a lot of stiff competition and pressure as they are now placed second on the medal table, with an overall medal count of 124 medals (40 Gold, 40 Silver and 44 Bronze).

The excitement and pressure has been on for so many Commonwealth countries today, as many more medals have been won by those that have taken part in this year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. With just 2 days to go, the pressure is on for the final amount of medals to be won, and the excitement will quickly increase as the time goes by. In honesty, the time has just flown so fast, I actually cannot believe we’re almost at the end of the XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It’s actually gone so quick.

Here, I will now quickly summarise today’s highlights, following on from the events that have just finished.

  • In Athletics, Lynsey Sharp wins the 800m Silver for Scotland, while Usain Bolt leads Jamaica into the 4x100m final (400m). Australia’s Sally Pearson wins Gold in the Hurdles event, while England‘s Steven Lewis wins Gold in the Pole Vault event.
  • In Diving, Tom Daley and James Denny win the 10m Silver, while Laugher/Mears win the 3m Gold.
  • In the Bowls event, Scotland won Gold medals in the Men’s singles and fours.
  • In the Hockey event, England’s women beat New Zealand in the shoot-outs to reach the Hockey finals.
  • In Gymnastics, England’s Claudia Fragapane wins her fourth Gold, while Nile Wilson and Daniel Purvis also win.

Below are the updated medal table results, with England in first place, and Australia in second place.

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times
    it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and
    visual appeal. I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!
