Commonwealth Games - 2010 - Day 10, Part 1


Hazel Irvine presents cycling highlights of the early morning women's time trial, followed by live coverage of the finish of the men's time trial. England's women's time trial team includes Olympic silver medallist Emma Pooley, while Olympic road race champion Nicole Cooke lines up in Welsh colours. Australia won all four road race gold medals at the 2006 Commonwealth Games but neither Nathan O'Neill nor Ben Day, who won gold and silver in the road race in Melbourne four years ago, will be in Delhi. Among the men's time trial medal hopefuls are Geraint Thomas, who memorably won track cycling gold in the men's team pursuit at the Beijing Olympics. There are also highlights of the women's hockey medal matches. Hosts India won gold in the women's tournament in 2002 and silver four years ago in Melbourne and expectations were high for more success at the start of the tournament. England, after their tremendous recent showing at the World Cup in Argentina, will also be hoping to feature prominently. There are also highlights from the boxing finals, including the light-flyweight final, the bantamweight final, and the light-welterweight final. The first boxing gold medals of these Games are decided at the Talkatora Indoor Stadium. Hopes of a medal for the home nations are high; Great Britain's boxers won three silver and two bronze medals at the European Championships in Moscow, their best showing since 1961.
