Rugby Sevens action
Scotland beat England
Results - first round, first heat
Rachel Parish - shooting
This is the fourth day of the Games, and what a day it has been so far. The men’s marathon was won by the Australian Michael Shelley, in a time of two hours, eleven minutes and fifteen seconds, and the women’s marathon was won by Kenyan Flomena Daniel in two hours, twenty six minutes and forty five seconds.
Loads of other competitions took place, including the quarterfinals of the Rugby Sevens, the shooting finals of the men’s and women’s Double Trap, the men’s One Hundred Metres Round One races, and the men’s doubles Bowls final won by Scotland against England.
I’ve not been glued to the telly all day; in fact no more than couple of hours, but what I have seen via the box, is men and women in their physical prime, achieving their very best. Many will go away disappointed because they were not medal winners, but the majority will feel they have achieved something way above the humdrum.
