There are 32 Boxing semi-finals to look forward to and individual competition in the hoop, ball, clubs and ribbon are wrapped up in Gymnastics on day nine of Birmingham 2022.

Here, we pick out five things to look out for. 

Hodgkinson and Wightman go for gold

Olympic and world silver medallist Keely Hodgkinson is looking to add a Commonwealth title to her glittering CV in the 800m final at 7.45pm.

The 20-year-old was one of the stars of Tokyo 2020 and backed it up in Eugene last month to underline her status as one of the brightest lights in world athletics.

She faces competition from Scotland's Laura Muir, who is after her first of two medals - with her also holding strong hopes of 1500m gold.

Scotland's Jake Wightman, who stunned the field to make himself a 1500m world champion in Eugene last month, has his sights firmly fixed on the top step of the podium as the 1500m final closes the morning session at Alexander Stadium at 1.10pm.

There are 14 athletics medals up for grabs in total on Saturday, including the men's and women's 200m.

British boxers to dominate medals

British boxers will claim 26 medals in the 16 divisions being competed for by men and women at Birmingham 2022.

Team England have eight boxers – five men and three women – through to Saturday's semi-finals, while Scotland are guaranteed five medals.

Wales’ identical twins Ioan and Garan Croft have both made the last four, part of their six-strong semi-final contingent.

The only other time Wales won six medals in the Commonwealth Games boxing ring was on home soil in 1958.

Seven Northern Ireland boxers are guaranteed medals, four of them women.

Hoop, ball, clubs and ribbon wrap up Gymnastics action

Malaysia medalled in all four pieces of apparatus - with five podium finishes in total - in the individual Rhythmic Gymnastics finals at Gold Coast 2018, while Cyprus claimed two titles across all four and both countries will be looking to emulate that at Arena Birmingham on Saturday.

Malaysia's Joe Ee Ng, Koi Sie Yan and Izzah Binti Amzan just missed out on the podium in Thursday's team final as they finished behind champions Canada, Australia and England so will be looking to bounce back.

Friday's individual all-around final saw England's Marfa Ekimova crowned champion and she will have hopes of more medals on Saturday, while the Cyprus trio of Neofyta Mavrikiou, Anastasia Pingou and Anna Sokolova - who secured silver on Friday - ended fifth in the team event and will hope to defend Diamanto Evripidou's Gold Coast medal tally. 

Last time out, Evripidou topped the podium in the team, all-around, hoop and ball competitions, as well as claiming silver with the ribbon and bronze with the clubs.

Jack Laugher chases third gold

After England's Jack Laugher won his second gold of the Games by successfully defending the Commonwealth men's synchronised 3m springboard with Anthony Harding on Friday, and the 27-year-old is looking to add an eighth Games title in total, in the men's 3m springboard final.

Laugher, who won the discipline at Gold Coast 2018 - after claiming the silver medal at Glasgow 2014 - is going for a third gold of Birmingham 2022 after his opening victory in Thursday's men's 1m springboard.

Geva Mentor hoping for Netball sea change

England goalkeeper Geva Mentor is relishing the prospect of shaking up Netball’s well-established world order in their Commonwealth Games rematch against Australia at the NEC in Birmingham on Saturday.

Mentor and her team-mates head into the unexpected semi-final showdown on a high after thumping world champions New Zealand 54-44 on Thursday, after Jamaica had upset the odds to sink the Australians and claim top spot in Group A.

The result means England and Australia will reprise their thrilling Gold Coast showdown one match earlier than expected, with the prize at stake a place in the final that had proved the sole preserve of the Oceania nations until the famous win four years ago.

The opportunity to make more history is not lost on 37-year-old Mentor, who is playing in her record sixth Commonwealth Games, and whose success in stifling New Zealand goal shooter Grace Nweke – 17 years her junior – on Thursday played a pivotal part in her team’s success.

“How exciting would it be if we do the job on Australia on Saturday, and Jamaica beat New Zealand,” said Mentor. "It would be a final we have never seen before and it would be really exciting and refreshing for world netball.”
