The Hampden Roar Rings Around The Track and Boxing Hits The Hydro On Day 10

With Olympic stars Usain Bolt and Tom Daley on the scene, day 10 was always going to be a high octane day of sport!


Jamaica dominated both the Men’s and Women’s 4X100m Relay at Hampden tonight, truly making the capacity crowd emit the famous ‘Hampden Roar’. After neat interchanges from Jason Livermore to Kemar Bailey-Cole to the man of the moment Usain Bolt, the Caribbean nation set the pace of the relay and recorded a Commonwealth record of 37.58.

England ran a tight race with Jamaica but ultimately settled for Silver and hotly tipped Trinidad and Tobago took the Bronze medal.

Jamaica's team of Kerron Stewart, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Schillonie Calvert and Shelly-Ann Fraser-pryce (JAM) won the gold medal in the Women's 4x100m Relay at Hampden Park on Saturday. Nigeria took Silver and England the Bronze.

Mercy Cherono (KEN) won the Women’s 5000m final on Saturday to hand Kenya its fourth consecutive gold in this event at the Commonwealth Games.

The last time Kenya failed to pick up Commonwealth Games gold in women’s 5000m was at Manchester 2002, when Maria Mutola (MOZ) triumphed.

At the Glasgow Games, all women’s running events with a distance of 800m or longer have been won by an athlete from Kenya (excluding para events).

Janet Kisa (KEN) took Silver, to bring Kenya its first ever one-two finish in this event at the Commonwealth Games. The last CGA to claim gold and Silver in Women’s 5000m was Mozambique at Kuala Lumpur 1998.

Jo Pavey (ENG) clinched bronze, England’s first Commonwealth Games medal in this event since 1998, when Diane Modahl (ENG) finished in third place.

The 40-year-old became the first English athlete over 40 to claim a medal in athletics at the Commonwealth Games since Judy Oakes (40) in 1998, when she won gold in women’s shot put at Kuala Lumpur 1998.


Josh Taylor’s cultured display (SCO) secured Gold in the Men’s Light Welterweight at The SSE Hydro and ensured Scotland’s 50th medal of the Commonwealth Games.

Only four CGAs have won more medals at the Games in Glasgow (England, Australia, Canada and India). The 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh was the most recent edition of the Games in which Scotland made the top five of the medal tally.

Taylor beat Junias Jonas (NAM) in the final, showing his class and a huge amount of character to settle the event. Jonas’ Silver would be Namibia’s best achievement so far in Glasgow, with the African notching two Bronze.

Sean Duffy (NIR) took the Bronze, Northern Ireland sixth boxing medal of Glasgow 2014, equalling the nation’s record six boxing medals, set in Edinburgh 1986.

Boxer Charlie Flynn (SCO) won the Men's Lightweight final on Saturday, making it the seventh successive edition of the Games in which a boxer has won a Gold medal on home soil.

The Edinburgh 1986 Commonwealth Games was the last time a home CGA failed to win a boxing Gold.

Flynn became the first Scottish boxer to win the lightweight final since Dick McTaggart (SCO) in 1958. James Rolland (SCO) in 1930 was the only other Scottish boxer to win Gold in this weight category.

Scotland have now won a Gold medal in boxing at 12 different editions of the Commonwealth Games. Only England has done so more often (18 times)


Tom Daley (ENG) won diving Gold in the Men's 10m platform with 516.55 points at the Royal Commonwealth Pool on Saturday.

Ooi Tze Liang (MAS) took the Silver with 433.70 and Vincent Riendeau (CAN) the Bronze with 429.25.

Esther Qin (AUS) won the Women’s 3m springboard event in diving to land the Gold medal. Jennifer Abel (CAN) clinched Silver, while Hannah Starling (ENG) took the Bronze.

Abel’s Silver was her sixth in Commonwealth Games history (three Gold and three Silvers). She trails only Beverly Boys (CAN) ( three Gold, three Silver, one Bronze) in the diving medal tally.

Jennifer Abel grabbed her third medal of the 2014 Games, after her gold in 1m springboard and Silver in synchronized 3m springboard.

She equals the all-time record medals won in diving at one edition. Chantelle Newberry (AUS), Charleen Stratton (AUS) and Abel herself won medals in the three springboard events in one edition.

Maddison Keeney (AUS) had the opportunity to achieve the same feat, but she finished fourth in the final.

Abel also won a medal, Silver, in this event at Delhi 2010. She is the first female diver to win a medal in this event at two consecutive Commonwealth Games since Jenny Donnet (AUS), who won a medal in 1982 (Gold), 1986 (Silver) and 1990 (Gold).


New Zealand and Australia clinched a place in Sunday’s netball final by beating England and Jamaica respectively on Saturday.

This will be the fifth consecutive final between New Zealand and Australia in netball. No other team has reached the final at the Commonwealth Games. Australia won the first two finals, New Zealand the last two.

New Zealand won its semi-final against England 35-34, its narrowest winning margin in a semi. Its previous smallest winning margin in a semi-final was 16 when it beat Jamaica 59-43 at Delhi 2010.

Laura Langman (NZL), Casey Kopua (NZL), Maria Tutaia (NZL) and Leana De Bruin (NZL) can win a third Commonwealth Games Gold medal, a record in netball.

With a score of 35-34, the semi-final between New Zealand and England equals the record for lowest total points in a netball match at the Commonwealth Games. Northern Ireland beat Scotland 37-32 on Wednesday.
