Commonwealth Games 2014 comes to an end on SundayReuters

Commonwealth Games 2014 heads into Day 6 on Tuesday in Glasgow at Hampden Park. Medals will be awarded in as many as seven track and field events.

The main action kicks off in the evening at Hampden Park with the women's triple jump. Watch out for 25-year-old Kimberly Williams of Jamaica here. She won a bronze medal at the 2014 World Indoor Championships in Sopot in Poland. Aussie Ellen Pettitt could throw in a stiff challenge too and maybe add to Australia's 87 medals.

Next up is the women's 10,000 metres final. Scottish fans will be hoping the 22-year-old Beth Potter can find a place on the podium. Claudette Mukasakindi , the 31-yearold Rwanda lady, could be dangerous here. She won the gold in the 10,000 metres at the Francophone Games in Beirut in the year 2009. Kenya's Joyce Chepkirui is also a contender.

The women's 400 metres final should set hearts racing as the competitors head toward a tight finish. Look out for Novlene William- Mills with a personal best of 49.63 seconds. This lady from Jamaica has beaten the odds to be a participant in the Glasgow Games after a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery after she contracted breast cancer. Jamaica, with two more representatives, could well find itself amongst the medals.

The men's events commence with the hammer throw final. Indian fans will be rooting for Uttar Pradesh's Chandroya Narayan Singh as they hope he can add to India's medal tally. The host country has three competitors in the form of Andrew Frost, Mark Dry and Chris Bennett. Jim Steacy of Canada, with a personal best of 79.13 metres, stands a good chance.

The women's 1500 metres final caps off the day for athletics on Day 6 of the Commonwealth Games The audience would be in for a treat as the runners would look to preserve their energy before going all out in the end. An exhilarating finale is on the cards. Scotland in the form Laura Muir have a representative and she would be looking to please the home fans. Both the Kenyans Hellen Obsando Obri and Faith Kiebogon stand a good chance too.
