Commonwealth Games: Day seven preview

Mark Cavendish
The Isle of Man's Mark Cavendish has a strong chance of a medal in the men's Road Race

BBC One 1000-1200


Highlights of the Women's Road Race which took place overnight plus live coverage of the Men's Road Race.

The men's Road Race, takes place over a 167km course, taking in some of Delhi's famous landmarks, such as India Gate, along the way. Mark Cavendish from the Isle of Man and Welsh rider Geraint Thomas both made waves in this year's Tour de France and will be looking to cap excellent seasons with the Commonwealth title. Also riding will be Scotland's David Millar along with Australian Mathew Hayman, who is the defending champion.

There will also be highlights of the women's event in which Olympic Road Race champion Nicole Cooke was attempting to win the Commonwealth title, no easy task in an event which favours riders who can call on the support of team-mates to help them plot their way through the race. Welsh star Cooke took bronze in Melbourne four years ago when Natalie Bates, backed by a strong Australian team, claimed gold. England also had high hopes of success in Delhi, with the likes of Emma Pooley, Lizzie Armitstead and Sharon Laws in their team.

Live coverage of the concluding stages of the men's road race. Australian Mathew Hayman upstaged the favourites four years ago in Melbourne - who will be claiming the spoils in Delhi today?


The Diving Competition gets under way.

Today's three finals include the Men's 1m Springboard in which Australia's Matthew Mitcham, who won bronze at the World Championships in Rome last year, will be among the favourites.


World 800m champion Caster Semenya of South Africa was expected to challenge for gold, but will miss the Games because of a back injury; the 19-year-old underwent an MRI scan, which confirmed the problem. Both Kenya's Janeth Jepkosgei and Jamaica's Kenia Sinclair have run faster than Semenya this year and the race is shaping up to be one of the most competitive on the track in Delhi.

The cream of the Caribbean's sprinters are expected to dominate the men's and women's 200m finals, while Welshman Dai Greene is favourite to add the Commonwealth title to his European gold.

Also, Tennis: - Men's Singles Final, Bowls, Boxing and Weightlifting
