Fran Halsall Claims Shock Win in 50 metres Freestyle

The 24-year-old saw off a strong challenge from Australian sisters Cate and Bronte Campbell, finishing in a time of 23.96 seconds to claim the gold. Halsall's time was the fastest recorded all year and set a new Commonwealth Games record.

Halsall has struggled in competition since the 2012 Olympics in London, and she told BBC Sport she "felt sick" during the final on Saturday:

I felt sick before because I knew it was going well and I had more in the tank. Sometimes I can try too hard but I upped my weight and got stronger and that's definitely paid off. I'm so happy.

Halsall gave the English swimming team their third gold medal, joining Ben Proud and Chris Walker-Hebborn as winners in their respective discipline (Adam Peaty would later add a fourth). The performance of the English swimmers at the 2014 Commonwealth Games is a nice surprise, as the event is usually dominated by the Australians.

ABC's Gerard Whateley turned into a poet describing Halsall's performance:

Halsall wasn't done, setting a second new Commonwealth Games record in the 50 metres butterfly semi-final with a time of 25.36. She will be the strong favourite going into Sunday's final, with a chance to collect her second gold medal and complete a fairytale tournament.

Mick Gault Equals Commonwealth Medal Record

The veteran Englishman decided to come out of retirement to have one last go at the Commonwealth Games and took the bronze medal in the 10 metres air pistol on Saturday, equaling the record of 18 set by Australian shooter Phillip Adams.

Gault will compete in Monday's 50 metres air pistol competition, giving him a chance to become sole owner of the record. Speaking to BBC Sport, the 60-year-old hardly sounded like someone who just came out of retirement:

"It didn't matter what colour it wasI've got the 18 medals now. It's job done. It's a weight off my shoulders and I can 'chillax'."

MP George Freeman was one of many to congratulate Gault:

The grandfather from Norfolk has never won a Commonwealth medal in the 50 metres air pistol discipline, so Monday's event could present Gault with the perfect ending to a long and fruitful career.

Usain Bolt Confirms He'll Run in 4x100-metre Relay

The fastest man on Earth will compete in his very first Commonwealth Games in 2014, and there was plenty of speculation regarding the events he would participate in as he is yet to run competitively this season.

Bolt told the BBC's Tom Fordyce his foot injury is completely healed, and that he plans on running on Jamaica's 4x100-metre relay team:

I will be running in the heats. I need the runs really. I need to get it going. I am here to run. I don't see why else I would travel to Glasgow. The injury has completely gone.

I have done a lot of training over this past month. I have been really pushing myself and I am in pretty good shape, but I am not yet in running shape hence why I am running the heats, just to get a few runs in.

Bolt is arguably the biggest star competing in this year's Commonwealth Games, and the news he'll be running in the relay event will only add to the event's exposure. One of the most popular athletes on the planet, Bolt will attract crowds most of the other competitors can only dream of.

Even athletes competing in completely different sports are in awe of the man, like New Zealand's Anita Punt, of the hockey team:

Football analyst Gary Lineker also (jokingly) got in on the action:

Glasgow 2014 doesn't need Bolt to be at his very best, but they do need him to impress. This year's Commonwealth Games have run incredibly smoothly so far, and the organisation deserves a lot of credit.

If Bolt steals the headlines like everyone expects him to, the event will be opened up to a much larger audience, ensuring all of that hard work from the event organisers doesn't go to waste. Everyone benefits from Bolt's presence—let's hope he's able to dazzle with his vintage speed.
