Welcome one and all to the second day of our live Commonwealth Games coverage. There are no fewer than 23 gold medals up for grabs on Saturday and one of them has already been claimed by England’s Johnboy Smith in the Men’s T53/54 wheelchair marathon in a time of 1hr 41min 15sec. Smith finished 4min 34sec ahead of Scotland’s Sean Frame, while Scotland’s Simon Lawson was a further 10 seconds back in third.

In an extremely gracious victiroy speech, Smith acknowledged that he was extremely lucky to win and would have to settle for silver if race favourite David Weir had not punctured while in the lead. Weir finished the race with a flat tyre, coming in seventh, a little over two minutes behind the winner.

Men’s marathon: Australia’s Liam Adams leads at the 10km mark with a time of 31min 06 but can feel the warm breath of Tanzania’s Alphonce Felix Simbu on his neck. Simbu’s teammate Hamisi Athumani Misai is close by in third, with Uganda’s Victor Kiplangat in fourth.

The men’s marathon is under way …

Alphonce Felix Simbu from Tanzania, who took bronze at the 2017 World Championships, has posted the quickest time of all the participants this season, while Northern Ireland’s Kevin Seaward will be hoping to improve upon his fourth place finish in the last Commonwealth Games. Kenya’s Jonathan Kipleting has the best PB in the field and could duke it out for the gold medal with his compatriot Philemon Kacheran.

Commonwealth Games: day two …live!

Welcome one and all to the second day of our live Commonwealth Games coverage. There are no fewer than 23 gold medals up for grabs on Saturday and one of them has already been claimed by England’s Johnboy Smith in the Men’s T53/54 wheelchair marathon in a time of 1hr 41min 15sec. Smith finished 4min 34sec ahead of Scotland’s Sean Frame, while Scotland’s Simon Lawson was a further 10 seconds back in third.

In an extremely gracious victiroy speech, Smith acknowledged that he was extremely lucky to win and would have to settle for silver if race favourite David Weir had not punctured while in the lead. Weir finished the race with a flat tyre, coming in seventh, a little over two minutes behind the winner.
