Swimmer Suzanne Landells became the first dual gold medallist of the Games when she came from behind to win the 200m individual medley, having already won the 400m on the opening night But the toast of the Commonwealth pool was 13-year-old Canadian Allison Higson. She won the 200m breaststroke to become the youngest gold medallist in the history of the Commonwealth Games. Dimity Douglas, of Canberra, a comparative veteran at 16, took the bronze. The men's 4 x 200m relay team finished a full six seconds ahead of Canada to give Australia its ninth consecutive Commonwealth Games gold medal in the event. At the end of the second day Australia was on top of the medals table with II gold, 10 silver and six bronze.

Canada had eight gold, five silver and five bronze. The real success story for Australia was at the Strathclyde Country Park course, near Glasgow, where the rowers took three gold and two silver medals the best one-day performance ever in Australian rowing. The haul included the two blue-riband titles, the men's and women's eights. Peter Antonie added the third gold when he won the lightweight sculls. Australia's fifth gold medal of the day went to Martin Vinni-combe in the 1,000m individual cycling time trial. Australia continued its solid showing at weight-lifting with two gold and two silver medals in the first four weight divisions. Victorian Phil Spivey took a bronze in the hammer throw. Ben Johnson, who believes he can break Calvin Smith's world 100m record here, showed why he is the fastest man in the world this year when he coasted over the line in 10.15s. The Bermudans, who charmed everybody by defying their announced boycott and marching in the opening ceremony, packed their bags for good yesterday. Although the Bermuda Government gave the team its blessing to stay the Bermudan Olympic Association, told the 12-competitors to pull but after "unspecified threats' against them. Their withdrawal took the total number of countries boycotting the Games to 32.

The electronic timing malfunctioned during his ride and manual timing was needed to provide him with a time. When Vinnicombe tore across the line at the velodrome and his time for the 1km time trial was flashed up as lmin 4.66s there was vast rejoicing, as well as much scepticism.

Valerie Walsh (SCO) A 1 By MICHAEL VISONTAY EDINBURGH, Sunday: About a week ago Philip Spivey dreamed that someone was handing him a medal while he stood on a dais. The dream came true yesterday when he won a bronze medal in the hammer throw, giving Australia its first track and field medal. "I thought the dream could be an omen but I didn't want to tell anyone about it because I thought it would sound ridiculous," an elated Spivey said after receiving his medal. Spivey, 25, from Melbourne, won Australia's only medal on the first day at the track and field by throwing the hammer 70.30 metres on his sixth and final attempt. It left him only 18cm behind the silver medallist, Martin Girvan, from Northern Ireland, on 70.48m. David Smith, from England, won the gold medal easily with a throw of 74.06m. Until the final throw, which was a new personal best by 8cm, Spivey's dream would have sounded very silly. He failed on three of his first five throws and his best effort, 69.22m, left him contemplating fifth place. When Spivey, who finished seventh at Brisbane in 1982, stepped up for his final throw, he needed to beat 70.10m, knowing that if he didn't England's Michael Jones would take the bronze medal which Spivey knew should be his. New ruling opens door for professional bowlers By JIM McMENAMIN EDINBURGH, Sunday: A new ruling by the International Bowling Board has rocked the lawn bowling world. Instead of defining an amateur it defines a professional bowler in clear and simple terms. Mr Garnet Putland, Australia's newly elected president of the IBB, disclosed the wording of the Commonwealth Games eligibility clause yesterday. In place of the old clause, which defines an amateur in equivocal terms, the new clause reads: "Professional bowler. All players are eligible for selection for the Commonwealth Games except those whose principal source of income is derived from playing Women's pairs: Freda Elliott and Margaret Johnston (NIR) b Jean Vails and Betty Stubbings (ENG) 21-15.

Jerry Jeremiah (VAN) When the distance was announced, Spivey leapt around so ecstatically that he appeared to knock over a cameraman. "Actually, he tripped over a box," was the explanation. The other gold medal to be decided, the mens' 10,000m final, was won by Englishman Johna-than Solly in 27min 57.42s. The sole Australian runner, Victorian student Steve Monegh-etti, came fifth in 28min 29.20s after being out-sprinted in the last 50m by Canadian Paul McCloy. The three heats of the men's 400m, another event severely affected by the boycott, saw Australia's three runners, Darren Clark, Bruce Frayne and David Johnston, qualify comfortably for the semi-finals. Clark, 20, the raging favourite for the final, cruised to an easy win in 46.12s, the fastest heat. Frayne ran second in his with 46.99s, while Johnston, who is recovering from a strained Achilles tendon, ran third in his heat in 47.13s. Debbie Flintoff confirmed her favouritism for the women's 400m by winning her semi-final in 52.92s well clear of her main threats, Canadians Jillian Richardson and Marita Payne. Maree Chapman also qualified for the final with a third place 53.84s in her semi-final. the game of bowls." The wording of this ruling is intriguing since no attempt has been made to specify the precise meaning of the phrase "principal source of income". It could be interpreted as anywhere between 51 and 100 per cent. When I asked Kerry Clark (NZ), the senior vice-president of the IBB who will become the next president of the IBB in 1988, how many players would remain ineligible for the Games he said: "In New Zealand only world champion Peter Belliss would still be excluded as he is a self-proclaimed professional whose only source of income comes from bowling."
