Ath­let­ics, swim­ming heats up

Com­mon­wealth Games, Seven, Sun­day, Mon­day and Tues­day at 7pm

Whitsunday Times - - LIFE / TV HIGHLIGHTS LIFE -

IT’S time for Aus­tralia’s ath­letes to shine at the Gold Coast Com­mon­wealth Games.

The much-hyped men’s 100m freestyle fi­nal head­lines a big night of swim­ming on Sun­day.

On Mon­day, it’s a night of sport not for the faint-hearted. Catch the men’s and women’s 100m ath­let­ics fi­nals and the Camp­bell sis­ters (pic­tured) will be chas­ing 100m freestyle glory in the pool.

Then on Tues­day, it’s wheel­chair ath­lete Kurt Fearn­ley’s last day on the track. Watch him com­pete in the 1500m T54 event, in which he won gold at the 2010 Delhi Com­mon­wealth Games.

Tues­day is also the last night of swim­ming with the men’s 50m freestyle, men’s 1500m and the med­ley re­lays.

Com­men­tary by Hamish McLach­lan, Mel McLach­lan and Tam­syn Lewis.
