The 2014 Commonwealth Games heads into Day 7 on Wednesday in Glasgow at Hampden Park. Medals will be awarded in as many as seven track and field disciplines.

The main action in the track and field events will get underway in the evening at this imposing venue, with the men's high jump final. Home favourite Raymond Borrownicki will hope the fans get right behind him as he embarks on a quest to win a medal.

Look out for Kyriakos Ioannou, this 30-year-old Cypriot is a serious contender. In 2007, a gold came his way in the World Championships at Osaka. Aussie Nik Bojic could pose a stiff challenge too.

The men's long jump final follows next. Chris Tomlinson, holder of a European bronze and silver at the world indoor games, could prove to be quite a threat. The record in the long jump in Britain is his. Another Englishman Gregory Rutherford, with a personal best of 8.51 metres, will also be a contender.

First final in the women's section is the 3000m steeplechase. The 28-year-old Lennie Waite will hope to put a smile on Scottish faces. With a personal best of 9.48.17 she could throw in a stiff challenge. Another Scot, Elish Mc Colgan would find a great deal of support.

The women's javenlin throw final will also be held on Wednesday. Another gold medal is what South African Sunette Vilojoen will hope for. Vilojoen won gold in the Commonwealth Games in Australia in 2006, and will look for a repat eight years on. Liz Gleadle of Canada, with a personal best of 64.50 metres, stands a good chance as well.

Next up is the men's 400 metres final. A gold medal around his neck is something that Chris Brown of the Bahamas will want. Wayde van Niekerk of South Africa will be looking to stop that from happening, while England's Martyn Rooney could also pose a serious challenge.
