I never can understand why rhythmic gymnastics is even in the Commonwealth Games. It would make more sense to have trampoline and tumbling. Canada and Britain are internationally competitive in those

Can NOT believe that the women finished fourth behind Wales in Team Gymnastics They biffed it so badly on bars and completely blew it. That's the first time EVER that they've missed the podium in th

Oh and a 1, 2 in men's rings. So tied Delhi and Melbourne's gold medal total. The women's team should have performed better. With the results from the last 3 years to be beaten by Wales is shocking

So India whines and complains and the CWG federation just gives them what they want? Absolutely bloody ridiculous. There's no need for THAT many shooting events, what's on the program here is absolutely fine, but because "Oh, no, they lost those events, and their medal count is decreased" so they moaned and then get their way. It's bloody petulant. CWG should have never agreed to it in the first place.

Surpsingly Canada is in three quarterfinals in table tennis and the mixed doubles pair beat Singapore which is good.

I had the impression that Canada was in for a chance at bronze here and there. Singapore and England can't take all the medals.

Waking up to all 4 Canadians in the gold medal matches in wrestling, Ryan Bester in the finals of men's singles and the quartet of divers doing well in the prelims was a good surprise.

Me too, but its a stark improvement over 2010.

It sucks to lose but at least there are two silver medals that come with it! And we just won a gold in wrestling! And Faster, you seem to be held up on the fact that there are a lot of fourth place finishes. Yes it sucks to finish fourth, but Canada has come on like gangbusters in the last three days. Canada is a CLEAR third in the medal standings. I admit that I was negative when I saw Canada struggling last week, but the team is really coming on strong in the last few days. They've done tremendously well. Yes, there are disappointments, but there have been great surprises as well! I'm satisfied with where we're at and instead of dwelling on the fourth places, be proud of what the team has accomplished!

Read the last couple of pages, its intoronto that had started to mention all the 4ths.

It was very obvious that Canada would get better as the Games went on with wrestling, etc. Gymnastics has been a little disappointing, as has swimming and cycling.

26th gold guaranteed in the men's rings gymnastics competition. Now making a late run at Australia lol (probably will not get there!).

Swimming won more medals then in Delhi with the weakest men's team I have ever seen this program have.


Same as gymnastics. 5 gold in r.gymnastics, and first gold in artistic is all better then in 2010.


Gold and silver in rings!!

The women's team should have performed better. With the results from the last 3 years to be beaten by Wales is shockingly bad.

With swimming, the women's team is not make the progressions that were expected of them from 2011. Russell, van Beilen, McCabe have all not taken the next step despite increases in funding, training and better coaching. Add in the lack of development to replace Huot and Grand'Maison in the para-events and this Games paint Canada's movement in swimming as less than positive.

Ikr, but one member was injured? or replaced last minute (Victoria Moors) and had she been on the team, Canada would have been on the podium.

To me it doesn't matter who started it, like I said, I was negative too. Without question I was. What matters now is not to dwell on the 4th place finishes and to celebrate the accomplishments that our team have made and are making right now. We are clear of 60 medals now with a few good events left for us today and three full days of competition to go yet. I think there's a possibility we meet and beat what we did in Delhi. Especially if we keep on the way we have the last few days.

And cycling. What a disaster that was. We are going to win 10 medals. Nope 3.

Malaysia withdrew both of its 10m platform teams, so only 4 will compete. So only gold and silver will be awarded. Not good for Canada, as they were ranked third.

Seems odd, Malaysia is having a decent diving tournament.

Oh look another 4th. This time in diving.

Diane Roy gets a silver in athletics, she was the gold medalist in 2010 and lead for all the race besides the last few metres.


Netty in the lead in the long jump, as the favourite Proctor withdraws due to injury after he first attempt.

Riley McCormick is not known a springboard specialist, he's competed in it before yes, but his best results have been on tower. He was a finalist in London on tower, I was impressed that he moved down to compete on springboard, but if he's going to win a medal anywhere it'll be on tower. A couple of 4ths for something he doesn't normally compete isn't really that bad at all. He still has a couple decent shots yet to go...

And a medal is a medal! It's still a great accomplishment.
