28 July, 2014 (ISN) Ryan Cochrane has made the final of the 1500m men’s freestyle, the final will be 20:23 GMT on the 29th July.  After qualifying Cochrane set out his ambition for the final: “I would be really happy to get close to the Commonwealth record”, he stated. Obviously feeling confident, Cochrane will be one to watch tomorrow.

Jim Steacy is looking to hammer out a gold in the men’s hammer throw final tomorrow at 20:50 GMT after qualifying behind Scotland’s Mark Dry and is expecting a close contest with England’s Alex Smith. Steacy has thrown a 75.27m during the season and got silver in Melbourne in 2006 with a 74.75, so he looks like a good prospect for a medal tomorrow.

Sultana Frizell, who broke the Games Record yesterday in her qualifying heat with a throw of 75.73m, is in the women’s hammer throw at 19:05 GMT.

Darryl Conrad has slim hopes of making it to medal position in the weighlifting, saying he “might be good enough for top seven, but not much of a chance of a medal.” Finishing first in group B obviously please Darryl, as he said himself, “I have only had two weeks to prepare, so all things considered, I was very pleased.”

On Glasgow he said, “The crowd were amazing. Everything in Glasgow has just been great – from the athletes’ village to the venue itself.”
