Two weeks ago I wrote about Australia’s medal prospects at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
This is my record of medals won at the Games.
At the end of the final day of competition, Day 11:

Interesting; all the ‘home’ nations have done well. I think this is the first time for an long time that England topped the table. I wonder how much of this is on the back of the London 2012 legacy? I hope we can compare notes after 2018 when maybe home advantage will put Australia back on top?
I like the dea of us exchanging notes in 2018 🙂
I think there is a long tail in the home nations’ performance. I thought week two of the games really emphasised this with gold medal performances in gymnastics, diving and boxing.
The biggest result for me … England netball one pass away from a gold medal game and finish out of the medals.
As ever, thank you for finding and commenting on the post. I trust you are well.
Don’t mention the netball – it was just too stressful to *really* watch! England have come along way since Delhi in terms of tactics and physicality. I think we need to do more work on shooting under pressure; both Jo Harten and Kadeen Corbin missed quite simple shots under the post but could then sink the most amazing shots moments later. There were too many ‘wrong’ passing decisions; choosing a long risky pass instead of a ‘safe’ short pass.
