Commonwealth Games 2022 day 7 live stream: medal tally, schedule, results, Australia Diamonds v Jamaica netball

World swimming pin-up Ben Proud won the 50m freestyle at the Commonwealth Games.

England’s Proud, who won the world title in Budapest in June, qualified third fastest for the final, but the result was never in doubt.

Another thing that was never in doubt was the sprinter’s status as the owner of Birmingham’s finest rig.

With his signature windmill freestyle, the popular swimmer was third fastest in the heats, but he easily led the final and never looked back. It was the third consecutive Commonwealth title in the 50m freestyle for the 27-year-old.

“That’s what it’s all about,” I said after the semi-final.

Proud edged out Lewis Burras and third was Canadian Joshua Leiendo Edwards, who had a groundbreaking international encounter.

Australian Tom Nowakowski was sixth and Grayson Bell eighth.

Diamonds ready for the first real test

-Erin Smith

Over 9,000 fans packed the NEC Arena tonight to watch Australia and Jamaica battle it out for top spot in their group.

This will be the first real test of the Games for both teams after going through the round games.

The Diamonds have scored 331 goals in their first four games – the Sunshine Girls close behind with 321.

Injured Australian midfielder Paige Hadley has again been ruled out leaving Diamonds with just 11 players on the squad roster.

It will be an interesting match with both sides knowing each other due to the majority of players all playing in the Super Netball league.

The game, which is due to start at 6pm AEST, will be the 50th Test selection for Australian defender Jo Weston.

Regardless of the result, Australia and Jamaica both qualify for the semi-finals and will play either England or New Zealand depending on how their game goes later in the evening.

Swimmer Reveals Spongebob’s Diet

What does every athlete crave after a big competition is over? Apparently, fast food and that’s exactly what Australian swimming champion Elijah Winnington was looking for after his impressive Commonwealth Games medal haul.

After winning gold in the 400m freestyle and 4x200m freestyle relay, then bronze in the 200m, Winnington admitted it was all pizza, ice cream and SpongBob.

“I’ll raise my hand, I think I’ve eaten pizza with every meal since I finished swimming on day 4,” he told Channel 7. had maybe seven or eight pizzas.

“I actually went straight to the village where there’s a little store, you can buy these huge tubs of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. (I thought) Alright, I’ll get one, do me a favor This is going to last me two days… I sat down and watched an episode of ‘SpongeBob’ and he was gone at the end.

Winnington is well known for posting SpongeBob SquarePants content on his Instagram account. Fervent fan of the cartoon, it’s up to him to show before and after the races.

“Everyone knows it’s my thing,” I added.

“Calm me down, get me ready. Nobody can hate me, it’s the greatest show on earth. It’s all over my Instagram.

“People actually think I’m just laughing, but it’s actually a good show. I think I find it so hilarious and funny.
