Ashley McKenzie describes winning the judo gold medal at the Commonwealth Games

Eilish McColgan followed in her mother Liz’s footsteps with an exciting 10,000m gold on day six in Birmingham. McColgan scored a third Commonwealth Games gold for the family with a stunning sprint finish, equaling her mother’s performance at the event in 1986 and 1990. In a fun evening of track and field action, England’s Katarina Johnson-Thompson put the finishing touches on her comeback gold as she retained her heptathlon title. It’s Johnson-Thompson’s first win since winning the world title in 2019 after recovering from a career-threatening injury. Daryll Neita took bronze in the 100m final behind Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah, who added to her considerable collection an individual Commonwealth gold that had proved elusive.

Earlier, Evie Richards put an end to a season cut short by injury and illness as the Malvern-born mountain biker claimed a dominant cross-country win at Cannock Chase Forest. Emily Campbell, meanwhile, stormed to a popular home gold at the Commonwealth Games. Campbell, the Olympic silver medalist who was England’s flag bearer at the start of the Games, achieved a gargantuan total of 286kg (personal best and Commonwealth Games record) to take gold.

On the final day of swimming action in the pool, world champion Ben Proud continued to dominate the men’s 50m, while Scotland’s Duncan Scott claimed his second gold of the Games by beating rival Tom Dean in the men’s 200m individual medley. There were then emotional scenes as Dean won his first gold medal of the week after six previous silver medals in the 4x100m medley relay, holding off Kyle Chalmers as England beat Australia in a brilliant race.

Day seven of the Games brings the start of the road cycling races, with some of the world’s best competing against the clock in the men’s and women’s time trials, including Welshman Geraint Thomas and Australia’s Grace Brown. Swimming gives way to diving at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre, where England’s Jack Laugher will fight for a third straight 1m springboard crown, and there’s a big day of powerlifting finals with four gold medals up for grabs.

There’s a lot more happening too. There are four gold medals up for grabs in para-powerlifting (two men’s, two women’s) at the NEC, where Scotland’s Micky Yule will hope to beat two fourth-place finishes in the men’s heavyweight division at the last two Commonwealth Games.

2022 Commonwealth Games: Day Seven

There will be no rest on day seven of the Commonwealth Games as another busy program has to be kept up in and around Birmingham. After yesterday’s mountain bike twists and turns through Cannock Chase Forest, the cycling action continues on the roads of the Black Country and Staffordshire with some of the world’s best donning their aerosuits and grooved helmets against the clock to compete for time trial glory . Can Geraint Thomas improve on his 2014 bronze medal? In the Tour de France he showed good legs.

Eilish McColgan equals mother with brilliant 10,000m win

There’s always some pressure on the world’s top athletes, but when you’re the daughter of perhaps Scotland’s greatest long-distance runner of all time, the expectation tends to come with territory. However, it has proved quite difficult for Eilish McColgan to live up to her mother Liz’s extraordinary record as the far-flung Scot traveled up and down the distances in search of triumph.

It all finally came together last night. The younger McColgan put on what was probably her best run of all time, adding a third 10,000m title at the Commonwealth Games to the family collection. McColgan was able to hug 1986 and 1990 champion Liz at the side of the track, a hug that brought a “tear to the eyes” of Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish First Minister – and many others too.

Emily Campbell wows the crowds in Birmingham with stunning weightlifting gold

A live DJ set, flashing bracelets and a home lifter of the highest caliber – the NEC was the place to be yesterday afternoon as Emily Campbell, who carried the English flag at the opening ceremony, broke the British and Commonwealth Games records and secured victory in the women’s over 87 kg category.

Campbell, who became Britain’s first Olympic weightlifting medalist at Tokyo 2020 last summer, quite enjoyed it: “The reason we come here is to perform on this stage at perfect games.”

Duncan Scott defeats Tom Dean but the Englishman finally wins elusive Commonwealth gold

Tom Dean lost his singles match against Duncan Scott but won the relay war against Australia to cap off a stunning Commonwealth Games meeting.

Scott and Dean’s 200-meter individual medley on the last night of the race was a box-office hit, as was the 200-meter freestyle, which was repeated at the Olympics.

The race ended 0.13 seconds in Scott’s favor as Scotland’s most decorated athlete in Commonwealth Games history secured gold.

But Dean was soon back in the pool and back at his best, producing an exceptional final surge to defeat Kyle Chalmers and secure medley relay gold for England.

Tom Harle was at the Sandwell Aquatics Center for an exciting final session of swimming action:

You don’t need brummie glam rock icon Slade to feel the roar at Alexander Stadium.

Another crowd – note Seb Coe and World Athletics – rose as one to roar Eilish McColgan and Katarina Johnson-Thompson to Commonwealth Games gold in 29 raucous and rocking minutes.

Johnson-Thompson’s personal best of 6981 points, set when she won the world heptathlon title in 2019, meant this would always be her gold to lose.

But in a career that has seen ups and downs in equal measure, the 29-year-old has long since learned not to take anything for granted and is dedicating her victory to Grandma Mary Johnson, who passed away last week.
