Commonwealth Games Diary: Was Usain Bolt backing the Kiwis against Jamaica?
Wednesday 30 July 2014
Even Usain Bolt’s presence could not inspire Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz in their netball tie with New Zealand.
The sprinter had vowed to cheer on the women’s team and duly waved his country’s flag in the stands as they went down to a narrow loss.
But was Bolt supporting Jamaica at all? New Zealand goal attack Jodi Brown said Bolt may have been privately backing the Silver Ferns, having met them earlier in the Games.
“He told us he was going to support us when we took a photo with him,” Brown said. “He’s here to support the Kiwis.”
Azman struggles to save face after nightmare dive
Every athlete aims for a perfect performance, but Malaysia’s Ahmad Amsyar Azman will doubtless wake up this morning feeling fairly embarrassed after a nightmare dive.
In the preliminary round of the men’s 1m springboard he got off to a good start, performing several acrobatics – but then fell flat on his face.
DaiGreene Thank you for all the kind messages of support. Was always going to be tough for me today but sadly it wasn’t to be. Proud to be Welsh
