The 2014 Commonwealth Games heads into Day 9 on Friday at Hampden Park in Glasgow. Medals will be awarded in as many as seven track and field disciplines.
The women kick off the action in the evening with the high jump final. Spectators will watch in earnest as these athletes attempt to reach new heights. There will be no shortage of support for Scotland's Jayne Nisbet, who yearns to win the coveted gold in her country. India's very own Sahana Nagaraj Gobbargumpi is also among the competitors here. Leontia Kallenou of Cyprus looks to be in good touch with a personal best of 1.92 metres.
Next up is men's pole vault final. Scotland have two pole vaulters in the form of Jax Thoirs and Gregor Maclean. And both will be looking to delight their home fans. Aussie Joel Pocklington with a personal best of 5.41 stands a good chance as well. England, with as many as three competitors, could find themselves with a medal in this discipline.
The next event is the women's discus throw final. Kirsty Law will be hoping to find herself on the podium as fellow Scots will cheer her on. India, with two competitors, are in with a shout for a medal here. The gold is what Seema Punia and Krishna Poonia would be aiming for. England's Eden Francis, with a personal best of 59.78 metres, is a serious contender in this discipline.
Right after this, we have the men's 3000 metres steeplechase final. Scotland's Stephen Lisgo could pose a very stiff challenge. Jonathan Ndiku, Ezekiel Chebii and Jairus Birech - the thrree Kenyans - would look to extend the country's dominance on the race track.
Next up is the lung busting men's 10,000 metres final. This is a great test of endurance as the athletes will have to somehow sustain the momentum to come out on top. The Kenyans as always would be prime candidates for medals. Peter Kirui and Josphat Kipkoech would love to emulate Joyce Chepkirui and Florence Kiplagat, the women from Kenya who came first and second respectively. Uganda's Moses Kibet stands a good chance too.
The women's 800 metres follows this. Here the two Kiwis - Angie Smit and Nikki Hamblin - could pose serious threats. Eunice Sum of Kenya could be dangerous too.
The exhilirating women's 100 metres hurdles final caps off another exciting day at the Hampden Park. Sally Pearson is the favourite, while fellow Aussie Michelle Jenneke could pose a threat.
