With all the excitement of the triathlon, marathon and swimming, day 4 saw the beginning of the track and field. Sunday saw 24 medals available to the athletes, and the games did not fail to impress...the men's marathon was refreshing (to watch, not so much compete) due to the so very dominant Kenyans having to make do with silver as Australian Michael Shelley ran to victory! Flomena cheyech Daniel stuck to tradition for the women's marathon, winning gold for the Kenyan's. Jess Varnish and Laura Trott secured bronze and gold medals respectively in the cycling, and Sophie Thronhill also managed to secure gold during the cycling Trial B2. Other gold's cam for England in the shooting and swimming, making it another good day for England.
The medal table still looks good for England and Scotland, the latter of which have never won so many medals during the Commonwealth games. However it is Australia who lead the way now with a massive 73 medals in total, 26 of which are gold. England now have 57, with an excellent 23 golds, and Scotland sit below England with 30 medals, 11 of which being gold.
Keep pushing England, we're all behind you!
