Dawson celebrates like it's gold

Women's 100m backstroke

Nick Hope

BBC Sport on the Gold Coast

Scotland’s Kathleen Dawson celebrates like she’s won gold, but that swim-off success over England’s Lizzie Simmonds is an important one for her.

Yes it puts her into tomorrow’s final, but it should confirm her place in the British team for the European championships in the Summer.

Simmonds - a former European and Commonwealth medallist, who raced at the Beijing 2008 and London 2012 Olympics - was written off by many in the sport after having her funding axed and being controversially overlooked for selection for Rio 2016.

She’ll now have to hope for a big performance in the 200m event later in the Gold Coast Games if she’s to extend her career to another major event.

Dawson through to final

Women's 100m backstroke

Scotland's Kathleen Dawson beat England's Lizzie Simmonds in a swim-off to reach the final of the women's 100m backstroke.

They both finished their semi-finals in a time of 1 minute, 00.67 seconds meaning they had to go head-to-head in order to complete the final line-up.

That result could have consequences for Simmonds as Dawson is now more likely to be selected for the Glasgow European championships in the summer.

Basketball catch-up

England's women were beaten by Canada in their opening Pool A match - they lost 80-54.

The men are in action tomorrow, when they play India, while Scotland's men take on Cameroon at 11:00 BST on Saturday.

Friends and rivals


Nick Hope

BBC Sport on the Gold Coast

Rivals in the pool, but always friends out of it.

Great to see Scotland’s Duncan Scott and England’s James Guy share a laugh and joke together moments after receiving their respective bronze and silver 4x100m freestyle relay medals tonight.

Remember they won two Olympic silver medals together as part of the Team GB relay line-ups at Rio 2016 and will unite again for the European championships this summer.

Australia win gold in the men's 4x100 relay

Easy win for England


It's another dominant 5-0 win for England's badminton players against hosts Australia in the mixed team event.

Wins for the Adcocks, Rajiv Ouseph and Olympic bronze medallists Chris Langridge and Marcus Ellis ensured the win, before Chloe Birch and women's doubles pair Lauren Smith and Sarah Walker hit the final nail in the Aussie coffin.

They're through to the quarter-finals without dropping a rubber - impressive stuff!

'My best is yet to come’

Manx swimmer Atkinson fifth in 100m fly final

Mark Edwards

Reporter, BBC Isle of Man

An amazing fifth-place finish and another Manx record for the remarkable Charlotte Atkinson.

She told the BBC: “It’s a another PB and there’s more to come from me.

“It’s not even my main event.”

Her time of 57.88 secs was 1.10 second down of Australian winner Emily Mckeon, (56.78) who set a new Games Record.

Her strongest event is the 200m butterfly.

Day two turns green and gold


Nick Hope

BBC Sport on the Gold Coast

Well, it was nice whilst it lasted on day one with England dominating in the pool, but day two certainly belonged to the Aussies.

Fifteen medals - six of them gold - and a one-two-three in the women’s 100m butterfly certainly a major highlight on a night of so much success for the hosts.

We’re not quite finished though - next up are a couple of swim-offs including the 100m backstroke between Scotland’s Kathleen Dawson & England’s Lizzie Simmonds.

In the pool


It was Australia's day at the aquatics centre as the team came away with 15 medals in total - including six golds.

South African Chad le Clos became the most successful male swimmer in history at the Commonwealth Games after winning the 50m butterfly - his 13th medal.

Scotland claimed three: a bronze from Duncan Scott in the 200m free, silver from Mark Szaranek in the 400m individual medley and bronze in the 4x100m free relay.

England bagged two more golds through Sarah Vasey (50m breaststroke) and Alice Tai (S9 100m free) while Lewis White added S9 100m free silver and so did the relay team.

'I'm ridiculously proud'


Wales' man of the moment Gareth Evans finally calmed down after winning weightlifting gold a little earlier today, and spoke to BBC Sport.

"It was hard not to get a bit teary, if I'm being completely honest. Like every Welshman, I'm ridiculously proud," he said.

"I missed out on a medal in Glasgow [2014 Commonwealth Games] and vowed I would never miss a medal again. I have let that spur me on for the past four years."

So what next for the 31-year-old?


Gold for Wales' Evans


Gareth Evans claimed Wales' first gold medal of these Games with victory in the men's -69kg.

His total of 299kg was enough to surpass Sri Lanka's Indika Dissanayake Mudiyanselage, and India's Deepak Lather.

Gareth Evans lifts his way to gold

There was disappointment for the home nations in the women's -58kg final, however.

England's Laura Hewitt finished fourth, with Wales' Christie Williams and Scotland's Jodey Hughes in seventh and ninth respectively.

England in control


In the badminton mixed team event, England beat South Africa 5-0 in the morning session.

They're now playing their evening match against Australia and it's going in their favour.

You can watch it here.

Meanwhile, Scotland were beaten 5-0 by India.

Wait, am I allowed to say snog on the BBC?

Let's quickly move on...

Oh my days, the Commonwealth Games has taken a turn.

Kiss cam appears at the swimming and a over-exuberant couple decide to go big and start snogging like teenagers in the stands.

My poor innocent eyes.

What happened on the track?

Lewis Oliva performed strongly in the keirin to claim silver for Wales - their third medal of these Games.

The Australians were dominant on the track - Matthew Glaetzer claimed keirin gold, while compatriot Stephanie Morton defended her sprint title.


Circus act or velodrome?

BBC Sport on the Gold Coast


If ever you’re watching TV and think those racing make it look easy, standing above the track gives you an even greater appreciation.

It’s not so much a slope at each end of the track, more a cliff. The TV just doesn’t do it justice. It could double up as a dam.

What happened on the track?

It was a double medal day for the Archibald household.

First, Scotland's Katie beat Australia's Rebecca Wiasak to women's 3,000m individual pursuit gold...

Then big brother John won men's 4,000m individual pursuit silver, just behind England's Charlie Tanfield.

Still waiting for a breakthrough

Women's hockey, Scotland v Canada

We're not done with today's sport yet...

Into the third quarter of the women's hockey pool match between Scotland and Canada and it's still scoreless.

You can watch it live by selecting the tab above.

That's it for the medal-giving on day two so it's time to recap on all the goings-on from around the venues.

Hang on...confusion reigns. The official times haven't appeared on the board and all the athletes look nervous.

Here it turns out Sri Lanka have been disqualified but the other results stand.

This is how they finished:


Bronze Medal - Scotland

Men's 4x100m freestyle relay final

Scotland's first ever medal in this event!

Silver Medal - England

Men's 4x100m freestyle relay final

England cap off another excellent day on the Gold Coast!

Gold Medal - Australia

Men's 4x100m freestyle relay final

They've done it and they've done it in style.

But look out, it's good news for the home nations just behind...

Australia win gold in the men's 4x100 relay

Men's 4x100m freestyle relay final

Aussies cycle clear

Track cycling

Luke Reddy

BBC Sport on the Gold Coast


Those two gold medals for Australia takes their tally to five on the track and gets them to 12 overall, pulling clear of England.

As I wrote earlier today, it’s no fluke. The Aussies sent just a handful of riders to the World Championships last year as they were targeting this instead. It is home soil after all!

The Velodrome slowly empties. Hopefully there’s overnight security to look after the bikes as there’s about enough money’s worth to buy a small country propped up in the the middle of the track.

Aussie glory


Nick Hope

BBC Sport on the Gold Coast

Erm - so you know how England dominated day one in the pool and started well on day two?

Well the Aussies have owned the pool on the second day of competition. A breathtaking lockout of the podium places for the hosts in the women’s 100m butterfly event takes their total to 12 honours tonight - five of them gold - and there’s still the men’s 4 x100m freestyle relay to come.

And that too will be won by the Aussies - trust me!


Women's 100m backstroke

Scotland's Kathleen Dawson and England's Lizzie Simmonds will have a race-off to qualify for the women's 100m backstroke final after both finished their semi-finals in a time of one minute 00.67 seconds.

That race will take place at 13:42 BST.

Women's 100m butterfly final

Charlotte Atkinson was the best performing home nations swimmer from that 100m butterfly final.

The Isle of Man athlete finished fifth, with Alys Thomas of Wales in seventh.

Gold Medal - Emma McKeon (Australia)

Women's 100m butterfly final

It's an Australian 1-2-3!

Emma McKeon grabs the gold, Madeline Groves takes the silver and Brianna Throssell earns bronze.

McKeon nails it in 56.78 seconds - a new Games record.
