Okie dokie it’s the Commonwealth Games!

The Commonwealth Games is on this week in Glasgow, and although it can seem like a bit of a school sports carnival compared to the Olympics, there is still some top quality sport being made.

I was asked to contribute some words to the Australian broadcaster Channel Ten’s Commonwealth Games portal, which has heaps of video and information about the events.

So, here are the links you’re looking for:

Team pursuit.

Sprints and keirin.

More to come as they are published.

Bonus Round

As a special bonus, I also had the chance to write about my first love, track and field. Here are my profiles of the great 800m runner David Rudisha, and distance champion Mo Farah. I hope you enjoy them.
