Athletics: The men’s 4x400m relay heats began on the track. Always a fun event to watch…

Botswana, Jamaica and Zambia finish first, second and third in a very competitive round. The winning time is 3min 05.11sec for Botswana – Nigeria will have to wait and see if they qualify after finishing fourth.

Dive: The men’s 3m synchronized springboard final gets the crowd moving in the pool.

The English duo Anthony Harding and Jack Laugher lead the way with a very good score of 189.12 after three dives. The Malaysian duo of Yiwei Chew and Tze Liang Ooi is second, as it stands, with 170.70.

Netball: Scotland and Northern Ireland are about to embark on their playoff encounter for ninth place. Trinidad and Tobago beat Barbados earlier to clinch 11th place overall.

Athletics: Ciara Mageean of Northern Ireland won this first heat in a time of 4min 13.52sec. Abbey Caldwell (Aus) second, Edinah Jebitok (Kenya) third, Linden Hall (Aus) fourth and Laura Muir of Scotland fifth. It looks like Wales’ Melissa Courtney-Bryant missed out on finishing sixth.

Athletics: In this first women’s 1,500m, Muir was at the back of the field in the final stages of the race (not counting the athlete from Lesotho who was miles behind) and she was in danger of not qualifying, but she accelerated in the final stretch, and finished fifth. .. or was it fourth?

Athletics: Laura Muir is now on the track in her 1500m series.

Lawn balls: England eventually secured an 18-14 win in the women’s pair quarter-final.

Hockeytable tennis and para table tennis and diving are also going on right now, if the live schedule on the official website is to be believed.

In women’s pair bowling, England momentarily increased their lead to five points, but India just answered with three simultaneous shots, and suddenly it’s 14-12.
