Thanks for taking the time to let everyone know.

We have close family friends on the netball team so will be watching and supporting where possible. Will have to scold myself for the quasi endorsement of global British tyranny.

For those who participate its a useful stepping stone to perhaps bigger things.

Like most of our baxers came through that route, so they did.

My next door neighbour used to go to the games, weightlifting, he was alright at it and obviously at a standard that could compete, but he said the craic was getting there and enjoying it, the sports village was one big party place!

So when you were knockout of your event early then they could have a few drinks and enjoy the experience... He did mention there was lots of fit people (can't say birds anymore, otherwise Sid will be on to me) having consensual parties

Whats with the attitude on all these threads making light of the Brits Brits bloody past in a comical nonchalant type shi t.  It seems to be an attitude some of ye bask in .
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.

Worst competition ever dreamt up and continued by a fallen empire.

Going on about medal tables and how great it is.

FFS you are beating cyclists from Ghana who don't even own a tucking bike

Major shock for England today as the Brownlees failed to get medals in the triathlon. Looks like general injuries due to wear and tear over a period of time have caught up on them.

Och sure what harm is there in it? Most of the former colonies all seem to want to participate. It's okay to let people enjoy things.

They should have a whip round for the NHS amongst participating ex colonies at the closing ceremony.
England's dancing days are done.

NI win their first medal on the track since 1986 (and first athletics medal since 1990) with Leon Reid's bronze in the 200m.  English favourite Zharnel Hughes was disqualified from 1st place moving Reid up from 4th.
