Commonwealth Games 2022: hockey, cycling and Peaty back in the pool on day four – live!

Key events

Beach volleyball: There might not be a beach in Birmingham but there will be some sand at Smithfield today and the teams will have the weather for it. It’ll be like the Copacabana come 7pm.

Men’s bowls: It is 10-5 to England against Wales in the triples after 12 ends in their semi-final.

Swimming: Adam Peaty is back in the pool in the 50m breaststroke semi-finals at around 7.20pm BST this evening. He finished fourth in the 100m final yesterday so will be hoping to do better today.

Men’s bowls: Tomlinson nails it with the final roll of the 10th end to earn three points for Wales to move the score on to 8-5. It’s a tense one.

Cycling: Some reaction to yesterday’s crash at VeloPark.

Men’s bowls: England are 7-2 up on Wales after eight ends in their triples semi-final. It is a pretty tight contest at Victoria Park in the sunshine.


It is another action-packed day in Birmingham. We will have everything from hockey to weightlifting with a little bit of gymnastics thrown in for good measure.

There are medals up for grabs in all sorts of events, including bowls and cycling. Hopefully it will be a calmer day on the track after the dramatic crash which saw Matt Walls going over the side and into the crowd during a race, resulting in the curtailing of the session. Thankfully, he and everyone else seem to be all right.

Going into the evening we will have some pretty exciting swimming on our hands. We start with the 100m men’s freestyle final and conclude with the 4x200m relay of the same discipline, with plenty packed in between.

It should be another cracking day aided by some decent weather to boot in Birmingham.
