2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham

International Regular
Medal table's really tightened up over the last couple of days with the swimming having completed and England doing especially well in diving and gymnastics. It'll be close, though it's hard to see anyone stopping Australia in hockey and cricket .

India have moved up miles after winning loads of weightlifting and wrestling medals in the last couple of days.

I think it'd probably mean we have to take one or two golds off Australia across hockey/netball/cricket, but it doesn't seem beyond the realms of possibility that we could sneak into the lead with some diving/athletics golds.

England could also get up in boxing which gives out 16 golds on Sunday.

Watching squash doubles at the moment. How someone doesn't get decapitated is anyone's guess. Willstrop looks like he just got out of his casket a half an hour ago to play. The Aussies should take to the court with a ring of garlic around their necks to try to gain the upper hand.

I used to play squash regularly but never doubles, it’s hard enough for low grade players to stay out of each others way in singles. Even three quarter court is a bit risky.

Its such a great game for losing weight. When I started playing I was 16 and Chubb was a casually cruel name I’d been given at school (because owning it was better than, you know, trying to kill myself). By the time I turned 18 nobody could understand why I’d been called that. This is the only place I still use it. Squash was a huge reason.

Bad tempered hockey bronze medal match between Eng and SA. England player quite lucky to avoid a red card just now. Got away with shoulder barging an opponent.

Poor SA pulled their goalie then had to face a penalty corner, fortunately England missed and nobody was hurt.

It was a shellacking wasn't it!? I watched all bar the last 5 minutes or so, and the Aussies were very impressive.
I knew it was gonna be a 2010 repeat as soon as Australia were 2 - 0 up, Indian team has a massive mental block against them.

Straya once again dominating and comfortably winning the medal tally these Games is a good sign that the proper order of things is returning after a chaotic few years for the planet. Nature is healing.

178 v 176 = "dominating and comfortably winning the medal tally"?

COMMONWEALTH GAMES MEDALS TALLY (FINAL)

1. Australia — 67, 57, 54, 178

2. England — 57, 66, 53, 176

Congratulations to ALL athletes who competed and gave their all. A pox on the media and those who think that medal tallies are the b all and end all.

An easy win. Easing down at the end when we had it in the bag. A full ten gold medals more than the soap dodgers.

Also, according to CW lore, Australia's medals count for more because they were won away from home. That's how it works.
