The 20th Commonwealth Games moves into day six with 29-gold medals up for grabs across seven sports, with the Tollcross International Swimming Centre taking centre stage for the very last time as the curtain comes down on what has been a quite thrilling swimming meeting featuring some scintillating world class performances.

On the final day in the pool no less than seven gold medals will be up for grabs with James Magnussen and Chad le Clos expected to steal the headlines once more, while at Hampden Park, track and field will offer seven Commonwealth Champion opportunities to those that want it the most.

Mountain biking, gymnastics artistic, shooting, weightlifting and wrestling are also presenting the opportunity of gold in what is another busy day of the 20th Commonwealth Games.

Swimming

The thought of the swimming coming to an end is rather painful to take after six-days of unquestionably world class action that has seen 37 new Commonwealth records, five of which have been world records.

As expected, Australia, South Africa and England have stolen the headlines, however it is Scotland that have been the real surprise package of the Commonwealth meeting with 16-medals at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre.

More glory beckons on the final day of swimming action with 7-gold medals available and few will argue that all eyes will be on Chad le Clos again as the South African sensation looks to add a further two medals to his five already won.

The South African superstar edged closer to an unprecedented seven medals in one Games when he followed up his 200m butterfly gold last night, with the 100m title in the same discipline, underlining his credentials as truly global attraction in the pool.

Le Clos has already won gold in both the 100m and 200m butterfly, silver in the 4x100m freestyle relay and two bronze in the 4x200m freestyle relay and 50m butterfly and today the 22-year old concludes his phenomenal Commonwealth effort tomorrow when he goes for glory in the 200m individual medley and the 4x100m medley relay.

Other gold medal events on the final day in the pool are the women's 400m freestyle, the women's 50m backstroke, the men's 1500m freestyle and the much anticipated 50m freestyle between England's Ben Proud, James Magnussen and Cameron McEvoy.

Men's 100m final

Athletics

At Hampden Park, another seven gold medal events will be settled with the women going for five of them in the 400m, triple jump, 10000m, 1500m and the hammer throw, while the men go for glory in the 110m hurdles and the decathlon that concludes today.

In the men's Decathlon, Canada's Damian Warner leads ahead of England's John Lane and Kurt Felix from Grenada with another Englishman Ashley Bryant also in with a chance of a medal in fourth and with only 200 points separating the top four, a grandstand finish is expected.

Other sports
