Games-Hoare win the Games 1,500m as Wightman denies a golden double

Birmingham — Australia Oliver Hoa takes a devastating late kick to claim a stunning victory at the Commonwealth Games men's 1,500 meters on Saturday as Scotland's newly created world champion Jake Wightman was denied a golden double. I used it.

A large crowd was kissed by the sun in hopes of seeing Scottsman win again after Wightman won a spectacular victory in the world in Eugene, Oregon about two weeks ago. It was packed in the Alexander Stadium.

However, the roar wasn't enough to bring Wightman to the top of the podium, as Hoa timed his home stretch perfectly.

Hoare finished with a game record time of 3 minutes 30.12 seconds, Cheruiyot won silver in just 0.09 seconds, and Wightman settled in bronze. (Report by Steve Keating in Birmingham, edited by Hugh Lawson)
