Sunday marks the fourth day of competition at the XX Commonwealth Games, live from Glasgow. Today, 24 gold medals will be claimed across 51 events in 13 sports.

Arguably one of the marquee events of the Games, tonight’s Swimming schedule boasts the Men’s 100m Freestyle Final showdown, commencing on TEN from 4.05am (AEST). The mighty “Missile” James Magnussen versus superstar in the making, Cameron McEvoy, ensures a race not to be missed.

The evening’s action kicks off with Glasgow Live from 6.00pm (AEST) on ONE with Greg Rust, when Australia’s Hockeyroos play home team Scotland.

Tonight also marks the first night of the Athletics from Glasgow’s Hampden Park, featuring the most ancient and iconic track event, the Men’s and Women’s Marathon, from 6.00pm (AEST) on ONE. 

While the Kenyan competitors are the runners to beat, Queenslander Michael Shelley is Australia’s big hope. He claimed a Silver Medal in Delhi 2010, can he win a Gold Medal in Glasgow?
