BBC Week

Commonwealth Games (Friday 1 August)



Mishal Husain and Jason Mohammad introduce the morning's action, with table tennis from inside the Scotstoun Sports Campus and semi-finals in the women’s singles and men’s doubles. Historically, Singapore has been way ahead in this sport, while India, Australia, and England have been consistent performers.
Then later enjoy the semi-finals in the women’s hockey.

From 1300 to 1900 (1300-1345 and 1800-1900 BBC Two) Jason Mohammad and Hazel Irvine bring gymnastics, and there’s a sizeable Home Nations presence. Reiss Beckford, who won a silver medal at the Delhi Games four years ago, goes again in the final of the men’s parallel bars, followed by Sam Oldham, also of England, in the final of the horizontal bars. Oldham won silver at the World Championships last year.

Athletics finals include the men’s pole vault and women’s high jump and discus. England’s Steve Lewis won a silver medal in the pole vault in Delhi four years ago and competes again in Glasgow, while Dani Samuels of Australia is hotly tipped for a gold medal in the discus.

London 2012 double gold medallist Mo Farah headlines the athletics action from 1900 as he attempts to win the 10,000m Commonwealth title. Gary Lineker brings viewers all the drama from the track.

England athlete Tiffany Porter - a World Championship medallist last year - will hope to follow Mo Farah onto the podium in the women's 100m hurdles but she'll have her work cut out with Australia's Olympic champion Sally Pearson also in the field.
