    The Games will dish out more precious metal than your local jeweller on a busy Saturday.

    Just the 33 (THIRTY-THREE) golds to be won.

    Athletics (14) leads the way, with supported from wrestling (six), rhythmic gymnastics (four), diving (three), lawn bowls (three) and table tennis (three).

  2. Super Saturday?

    Here's what to look out for on a busy day nine of the Commonwealth Games.

    Jamaica's 100m champion Elaine Thompson-Herah is favourite to win her second gold in the 200m, while Namibian Olympic silver medallist Christine Mboma could return from injury in time to feature.

    Elsewhere, the women's 800m final could come down to England's Keely Hodgkinson or Scotland's Laura Muir and Jemma Reekie.

  5. Post update

    Almost time for us to bring the curtain down on day eight of Birmingham 2022.

    But before we do, let's round up the action on a fantastic Friday...

  6. Badminton

    Men's doubles round of 16

    A tinge of regret on the faces of the Scotland's Alex Dunn and Adam Hall. They know letting that 14-7 lead in the second game slip was a big mistake.

    After surviving four match points in that important second tie, Chan Peng Soon and Tan Kian Meng take the deciding game 12-15 and the Scottish duo go down 2-1 in the round of 16 matches of the men's doubles competition.

  7. How the medal table looks

    Australia remain in top spot of the medal table as day eight in Birmingham comes to a close.

    Wales are in ninth place, with Northern Ireland sitting in 15th position.

  8. 'That smile said it all'

    Women's triple jump

    Denise Lewis

    Olympic heptathlon gold medallist on BBC TV

    My highlight of the night was Naomi Metzger - a great series in the triple jump and she's finally on that global medal table. She used the stage to her advantage. She was whipping the crowd up and they were behind her every step of the way. It was great for her - that smile said it all.

  9. Post update

    Whisper it quietly but after the Aussie domination in the swimming England are clawing it back in the medal table.

    Team England have 129 total medals now and 47 golds - just three behind Australia.

  10. 'I was using the crowd's energy to close the gap'

    Women's 3,000m steeplechase

    England's Elizabeth Bird on her silver medal: "This crowd was amazing. Those last two laps, when I was trying to close the gap, I was using their energy so thank you to everyone who came here tonight.

    "I wish I had started moving sooner because I was so close to the gold, but I will take a silver.

    "I wanted to give everyone an exciting race so I am really happy."

  11. Badminton

    Men's doubles round of 16

    Alex Dunn and Adam Hall won a silver medal at the 2022 European Championships but the Scottish pair are going to have to pull something special out of the bag to beat the unseeded Malaysian duo.

    Chan and Tan lead 11-8 at the change of ends in the deciding game.

  12. Gold medal - Shanieka Ricketts

    Women's triple jump

    Shanieka Ricketts was in a class of her own to be honest, the Jamaican over 50cm clear to win gold with 14.94m - a Commonwealth Games record.

  13. England v Australia final

    Australia 1-1 India

    Heartbreak for India as they fail from all three attempts in the shootout, with Australia advancing to Sunday's final against England.

    There was controversy when Australia's Rosie Malone missed her attempt but it was ordered to be re-taken because of a 'technical issue'. The crowd was not happy and booed the decision before Malone put it away at the second attempt.

  14. Bronze medal - Naomi Metzger

    Women's triple jump

    Great scenes down in the sand as Naomi Metzger jumps a PB of 14.37m to secure bronze for England!

  15. Athletics

    Women's 3,000m steeplechase

    Paula Radcliffe

    Women's marathon world record holder on BBC TV

    Hats off to Lizzie Bird for coming away with a silver there.

  16. Athletics

    Women's 3,000m steeplechase

    Jackline Chepkoech set a Commonwealth Games record and a PB in taking that bronze - stunning effort of 9:15.68.

  17. Post update

    Women's 3,000m steeplechase

    Andrew Cotter

    Presenter on BBC TV

    Peruth Chemutai a rather tired figure - a broken figure - crosses the line. That might well have been a great race had she not fallen, but that is the steeplechase.

  18. Athletics

    Women's 3,000m steeplechase

    What a crazy race, a mad pace at the start and Peruth Chemutai hurting herself after taking a tumble but still able to win a battling bronze.

  19. Gold medal - Jackline Chepkoech

    Women’s 3,000m steeplechase

    There's no answer to Jackline Chepkoech as she powers away for a brilliant gold, and hats off to Elizabeth Bird, who overhauls a shattered Peruth Chemutai to win silver for England!

  20. Post update
