That was racist too. Two wrongs don't make a right. What are you saying? there is no racism anywhere in the world. You can believe if it makes you feel better but that's not true.
-------------------------------------------

No I'm not saying that but it does all get a bit precious. Yes there is racism out there and a lot towards whites but never gets reported. But an off the cuff remark to the media and not to someones face being called racism is over the top

Not sure about 'Hutch-ski' as a nickname I prefer 'Skupski and Hutch' brings up images of the two players turning up to the match in a Gran Torino. Anyway good luck to the pair of them.

White South Africans racist?
Oh hang on is that racist.
One things for sure , the commonwealth games medal table is even further behind than the BBCs.
Frankly the whole concept of the games is a joke.
But BBC sort yourself out and update the table a bit better. V poor.

I have not seen any real shockers in the boxing, some dodgy scoring yes but i do feel a Indian will need to be knocked out for a point to be given against them.

Oh dear, xenophobia rear it's ugly head again, but this time it's from the competitor! Having said that, there's too many people who don't know the difference between racism and xenophobia, which is a shame.

I would fancy Christian Malcolm to clinch the men's 200m tomorrow, who I sense could be in better shape than he was in Barcelona. He's done just as much as required to make his way through and has saved well for the final.

Leon Baptiste was surprisingly sharp and looks like ending his season the way he started off at Loughborough in May, but has to look back after the champs and see what happend and went on such a prolonged blip in between.

Louise Hazel hung on to the that precious first ever gold in her career in a substantial PB of 6156pts at that, gaining what should be the A standard for the Worlds in Daegu as well - so there have been double the gains for her! By quite a convincing margin of 56 pts at that in the end. Couldn't see that coming even at the end of day one, definitely among the big surprises, and that result could catapult her on the international scene.

That said, many congratulations over to Grace Clements for a most unexpected bronze as well!

Greg Rutherford looked like coming back to his best today and that silver coupled with a big SB of 8.22m, backed up by a 8.16m final effort, helps get back on track to great things. Lapierre put in one of the best performances in track & field with that 8.30m winning leap, but Chris Noffke sank bad down in the field and Chris Tomlinson may have risked a bit too much competing in that final.

A decent performance from Laura Whittingham with a fourth of 58.61m, edging a footing on the international stage, in a good level women's javelin, with all three medallists over 60m.

A little disappointed at Andie Osagie missing out on a final place in the 800m but Joe Thomas looked good to snatch a medal in the final, the finish is there and hopefully he can pull a new PB in the process.

Good job by Gareth Warburton and Darren StClair to make it through as well, the latter as a fastest loser, while it's good to be a handy experience for young and very promising Niall Brooks.

What is it with the BBC the day's competition has been over for hours and you still haven't updated the medals table.
