Commonwealth games chat.

Recommended Posts

Just thought I’d put a  thread here for general Commonwealth Games chat.

as a start it’s great to see the Aussie track cyclists finally doing something with those flappy old school numbers by putting a transparent pocket in the skinsuits to put the numbers in. 

Wonder if athletics will do similar?

I thought visors were supposed to be slower than sunnies or no eyewear yet 90% are wearing them in the cycling?

And are the Australian team wearing Kasks?

Although I’m working tomorrow I can’t wait for the tri relay. Very excited at the prospect of a medal for Matty Hauser after his strong showing in the individual race.

Canada chick earlier today in I think the 48kg class won. 

Owns a CrossFit gym. 

Just think, we think CrossFit vegans are wankers. Imagine what the weight lifting community thinks of them.

I saw a clip of her last night.  I think she has a Chinese coach and Mother is Chinese. Fair enough, no issue there but I'm bloody sure I saw her Mum waving a Chinese flag, which seemed odd as she was representing Wales. Was I mistaken?

Have you seen the Aussie badminton team?

hmmm

My confusion is not about the heritage, more about why her Mother is waving a Chinese flag at the Comm Games?

Maybe she’s still Chinese but the daughter isn’t.
