    I guess since there's no thread on this, I'm not the only one wondering if this is well past its sell by date?

    This is very low key isnt it? I would consider myself a huge sports fan but didnt realise this was on until day two of the event. Anyway, enjoy all those competing and all those watching with interest.

    That’s what training on an icy Portobello beach and in a farmer’s barn does for you.

    Im clearly living in my own little world then. If said ads are on BBC or ITV then its quite possible I have missed them to be honest. Hardly watch those channels at all.

    Is it just me or does the swimmer Peaty come across as an utter cockwomble with his comments about his gold medal winning performance being substandard?

    He certainly does, but he's not normally like that or didn't used to be. Dotes on his gran, she was the main reason he took up swimming apparently. I see Duncan Scott won a gold medal for Scotland in the 100m freestyle.

    He is putting pressure on himself ( peaty) to be the first swimmer to go under 57 seconds for 100m. The only thing whatís annoyed me so far is the non impartiality from the beeb. Been an enjoyable games so far

    I thought it was the mark of a winner tbh. He knows that he's better than that performance and is annoyed that he underperformed. Not settling for 'good' is just part of the make up of world class athletes.

    She is hopeless,but I can't see that, she ticks too many boxes. Apart from that I cannot understand why she is the main presenter these days. At least gabby Logan competed.

    On a gender equality note,how come 3 women presenting the games yesterday. Imagine the uproar from the equality brigade if it was 3 men.

    The Commonwealth Games just seems very pointless, athletes are competing to be the best in their chosen sport but in a restricted field!

    Plus it will cost a huge amount to hold and it surely cant bring that much to the economy or future tourism to justify holding it.

    No more so than Scottish, British or European events.

    It's good for things like Bowls as well that aren't at the Olympics.

    you could say that for loads of events, why only have a european championships in football, or the African nations cup

    I watched the ladies singles squash final this morning - really good match. Incredible to think squash doesnít qualify as an Olympic sport.

    Iím missing my old sport, judo, not being in it this year. Itís usually a sport Scotland does well at as well. I believe itís being upgraded to a core sport at the next games though.

    My daughter just watched the blind runners going the 100 meters. She couldnít get her head around why they had another runner running alongside them. When I explained it, she asked why they didnít use guide dogs. Children can be so cute sometimes.

    Probably and I believe sheís failed to win her race yet again. Failed football supporter and failed trumped up athlete.

    She got horsed this morning, not even close.

    Anyone see the Paralympic 100m female final? Lassie won by a country mile with a world record. Iím wondering how they categorise them though cos some there looked to be a big discrepancy between her and her competitors.
