I watched the first two heats earlier this morning. The Indians were very impressive with slick fast baton exchanges. By contrast the Nigerian exchanges were very ordinary and the last one was well outside the box.

Australia seemed to have gotten the baton around OK and I couldn't see which exchange caused the DQ. None of the commentators picked it up either. Wasn't particularly fast and apart from Aaron Rouge- Serrett none of the guys seemed to be in anymore than 10.5 shape at best. The time given after the race of 39.5 is not fast by Aussie standards. (CG qualifying time was 39.00) I believe a protest is in place to get the Aussies reinstated. Bahamas (39.3) beat Australia across the line in the heat but at the moment both teams have been disqualified.

Looking at the 3rd heat result it looks like Canada, England and Jamaica from that heat and possibly surprise packet India (H1) wil fight out the medals.

"Let's Go While We're Young"


Davies lost 6kgs according to his tv interview and doesn't look well. He ran better in the relay. Which leg did they stuff up?


Please find below an amended media release which now includes the reinstated men’s 4x100m relay team.

The Australian team’s protest against disqualification has been upheld, with the team now set to start in the men’s 4x100m relay final at 18:15 (23:45 AEDST).

In Delhi today: Tuesday, October 12

A huge night of athletics will tonight close the curtain on the in-stadium track and field competition at Jawaharlal Nehru Sports Complex, with Australians in the running for medals in seven events on the program on day 10 of the XIX Commonwealth Games.

Headlining the action in New Delhi (IND) tonight Flame athlete Jarrod Bannister, who placed sixth at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and sustained a serious elbow injury in the process, will make a welcome return to Australia’s senior ranks.

“It’s good to be back at a major meet and be healthy at the same time,” Bannister said.

Looking to bring home Australia’s first gold medal in the men’s javelin event since Alf Mitchell’s victory in 1962, New Zealand’s Stuart Farquhar looms as the biggest threat to Bannister’s title chances, the Kiwi entering the final with a season-best of 85.35m to Bannister’s 83.17m.

“I’m not worried about Stuart, I’m just focusing on myself,” Bannister said.

“I’ve had the best preparation and the best training sessions leading up to this comp so I just want to replicate them and I’ll be happy with the end result.”

On the back of team captain and training partner Steve Hooker’s inspiring win in the men’s pole vault overnight, Alana Boyd, Amanda Bisk and Liz Parnov are ready to set the stadium aflame as they aim for a clean sweep of the podium in the women’s pole vault decider. In a contest set to go right down to the wire, Kate Dennison (ENG) and Carly Dockendorf (CAN) will provide the Aussies’ biggest competition.

Queenslander Mitch Kealey and New South Welshman Jeremy Roff return to the track for the 12-man final of the men’s 1500m, where Silas Kiplagat (KEN) will start red-hot favourite for the title but face two Australians hungry for success.

New South Wales athlete Eloise Wellings will step out in the final of the women’s 5000m following her fifth placing in the 10,000m event on Friday night, the 27-year-old all set to face Commonwealth Games 1500m bronze medallist Stephanie Twell (SCO) and Kenyans Sylvia Kibet and Ines Chenonge, both 14:30 runners.

Australia’s men’s and women’s 4x400m relay teams sailed through their qualifying runs and will go into tonight’s deciding rounds with high hopes of continuing Australia’s history of relay success.

With three individual 400m finalists in the men’s team in Sean Wroe (silver), Joel Milburn (fifth) and Ben Offereins (seventh), the green and gold foursome will line up as one of the teams to beat.

Australia’s women’s team showed it was in great shape with a solid qualifying performance overnight, and will look to step it up a gear in the medal round.

“You don’t know (what shape the other teams are in), some teams might have rested some athletes but we are all going to be out here (tonight) and we’ll all have more to give,” relay member Lauren Boden said.

Australia’s men’s 4x100m relay team will also hit the track for the final after their protest against disqualification was upheld this morning.
