5 things to look out for

The third day of Birmingham 2022 will be packed with more exciting action as some of the biggest names go for gold.

Here we pick out five things to watch out for on Sunday.

Peaty goes for first gold

The Olympic champion will go for his first of possible four gold medals in Birmingham in the 100m breaststroke final at 8.51pm.

Adam Peaty was comfortably the fastest qualifier from the semi-finals and will be the man to beat on Sunday.

Australia bid for Rugby Sevens double

Australia offers to round out double gold success on Sunday.

The Wallabies’ men will face South Africa in the second semi-final, after the defending champions of New Zealand face Fiji in the first at 12:42 PM.

The All Blacks remain on track to defend the men’s crown they won at Gold Coast 2018, but their women’s side’s defense is over after Saturday’s defeat to Australia.

Fiji stands in the way of Australia in the women’s final at 8.38 pm.

Rivalry is at the heart of Edgbaston

India v Pakistan, one of the biggest matches in world cricket, kicks off at 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Both sides started with defeats as India threatened defeat before falling to favorites Australia, while Pakistan was overthrown by Barbados.

It’s an electric atmosphere in Edgbaston as Harmanpreet Kaur and Bismah Maroof’s sides collide.

Carlin eyes sprint success

Scotland’s Jack Carlin will have his sights set on gold in the men’s sprint competition, with New Zealand defending champion Sam Webster possibly the man to beat.

Carlin was a silver medalist behind Webster four years ago, but won Olympic bronze in Tokyo behind Dutch duo Harrie Lavreysen and Jeffrey Hoogland and will be sure to be on the top step on Sunday night.

On an action-packed evening on the track, the medals for the men’s and women’s tandem B are also determined.

Yee seeks second gold from Games

England’s Alex Yee won Birmingham’s first 2022 medal on Friday with victory in the men’s triathlon.

He competes in the mixed team relay along with women’s silver medalist Georgia Taylor-Brown, Sophie Coldwell and Samuel Dickinson.
