Commonwealth Games: Round-up: Harrison in a hurry
Monday 21 September 1998
Four finals, four wins. It was impossible for the coach, Ian Irwin, to have asked more of Harrison, Chris Bessey, John Pearce and Courtney Fry in two hours in which the quartet of gold medals were won. And the two bronze awards taken by the light-fly Gary Jones and the welter Andy McLean brought England's medal haul to six.
Harrison said: "My phone will be red hot when I get back. I've already had offers of signing on fees before I came out here. I will turn professional but I won't look to do so until the Olympics. I will win the gold without a doubt and I will a world championship if I turn professional. I'm the best super-heavy England has ever produced."
It was England's second-most successful post-war Commonwealth boxing performance, after the five golds won in Edinburgh in 1986.
Kelly Morgan gave Wales their first ever badminton gold medal when she defeated Aparna Popat of India to take the women's singles title. Morgan, the top seed, held off a determined fightback by the Indian, who had taken her to three games in the team contest preliminaries 10 days before and ousted the second seed Julia Mann of England in a remarkable semifinal.
Morgan, who won in straight games 13-10 11-5, has been having sessions with a Welsh sports council psychologist and uses special tapes to help her relax.
