Their compatriot Laura Kenny won the host's first track cycling title in 2022, while Singapore won the women's team table tennis.

The first judo title of Birmingham 2022 was won by Michaela Whitebooi of South Africa.

It was all about Australia in swimming, with victories for Kyle Chalmers, Kaylee McKeown, Emma McKeon, and the men's 4x200m freestyle team all winning gold.

Olympics.com carried live updates the entire day from Birmingham, which you can re-live as they happened below.

All times British Summer Time (UTC/GMT +1 hour). Most recent updates first.

9:45 pm - Australia win men's 4x200m relay

It wasn't quite the world record Australia's women set in the same event yesterday evening, but Elijah Winnington, Flynn Southam, Zac Incerti, and Mack Horton have set a superb new Commonwealth Games record.

The swimmers in green and gold took the lead 100m into the race and never relinquished it, finishing in 7.04.96.

England won the silver medal +2.54 seconds back, while bronze went to Scotland in 7:09.33.

That wraps up our coverage for this evening. Thanks for joining us and we'll see you again tomorrow at 10:00am.

9:20 pm - South Africa dominate women's 100 breaststroke semi-finals

Tatjana Schoenmaker and her compatriot Lara van Niekerk won the two women's 100 breaststroke semi-finals.

But it's 19-year-old Van Niekerk, who won the 50m title earlier this week, who swam fastest overall in 1.05.96.

Olympic champion Schoenmaker stopped the clock in 1.06.43, while Australian second-place finishers Jenna Strauch and Jenna Hodges both qualify too.

8:52 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Emma McKeon wins women's 50m butterfly

It was a quick turnaround for Emma McKeon after the 100m freestyle heats, who returned to the water around an hour later to take out the women's 50m butterfly title!

The Australian star touched home in 25.9 to win her second individual title in Birmingham alongside the 50m freestyle.

South Africa's Erin Gallagher clinched silver in 26.05, while McKeon's compatriot Holly Barratt got bronze in 26.05.

Olympic champion over 100m Maggie Mac Neil finished just out of the medals in fourth in 26.17.

McKeon is already her nation's record Commonwealth title-holder, and extends her tally to 12 golds.

Here's what she said after:

"I feel great. I think that was my 13th race. I've been counting since I got to halfway and that was on day two.

"That's my first international medal in the 50 fly and my main focus is the 100 fly and it's good to know I have that speed. The 50 fly is about keeping your stroke and getting your hand on the wall first. 

"I love a challenge. Just having this huge workload is preparing me for Paris (2024 Olympic Games) and even though it's a hard workload physically it's just training my mind to be able to do that many races back to back.

"I'm not going to have that many once I get to Paris. It's just building that self belief."

8:40 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Andrew Jeffcoat wins men's 50m backstroke

It's gold for New Zealand!

Congratulations to Andrew Jeffcoat who stops the clock in 24.65 to win the men's 50 back.

South Africa's Pieter Coetzee clinches silver in 24.77 while bronze goes to Canada's Javier Acevedo in 24.97.

Shout out to India's Srihari Nataraj who put on a great swim to finish fifth in 25.23.

8:16 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Summer McIntosh wins women's 200 IM title

Canadian sensation Summer McIntosh adds another medal to her impressive CV this summer with victory in the women's 200 IM final.

Fresh off becoming a double world champion in Budapest a month ago, the 15-year-old clocked 2.08.70 to clinch the title. She is on track to becoming a legend by the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Kaylee McKeown, less than 30 mins after winning 200m backstroke gold, finished with silver in 2.09.52 - that's an incredible effort.

Bronze goes to England's Abbie Wood in 2.10.68, which got a predictably big cheer from the Sandwell Aquatics Centre crowd.

We spoke to McIntosh before the Games to find out what the secret to her success is, and you can see that interview below.

8:05 pm - Chad le Clos stays on track for history, Cody Simpson qualifies

Yesterday Chad le Clos tied for the most Commonwealth Games in history (18) with his silver medal in the men's 200 butterfly.

After finishing top of his semi-final in the 50 fly just now, it looks like he could make more history in tomorrow's final.

The South African clocked 51.64 to beat highly-rated Canadian Josh Liendo, while Australia's Matt Temple got the fastest time overall with 51.52 in the other semi.

Cody Simpson also qualifies for tomorrow's final courtesy of a 52.16 3rd-place finish in his race, alongside English Olympic gold medallist James Guy.

7:37 pm - Emma McKeon peerless in 100m free semis

Olympic champion Emma McKeon just made a serious statement of intent the women's 100m freestyle semi-finals.

The Australian star clocked 53.12 to set the fastest time overall, with world champion and compatriot Mollie O'Callaghan winning her heat in 53.33.

What a clash that is going to be in tomorrow's final.

Another Aussie in Shayna Jack will be joining them, as will England's Freya Anderson and Anna Hopkin.

7:30 pm - Adam Peaty on fire in 50m breaststroke semi-finals

Perhaps he is still smarting from yesterday's fourth-place finish in the 100m breaststroke (which is incredible given that he broke his foot two months ago!), but Peaty looked powerful there as he won the first men's 50m breaststroke semi-final.

The Englishman stopped the clock in 27.03, ahead of yesterday's 100m winner James Wilby, who got 27.65.

The other semi-final was won by Australia's Sam Williamson, who will go through to tomorrow's final as the top seed with his time of 27.01.

If you want to hear a little more about Adam Peaty's new-found hunger, check out our exclusive interview with him below.

7:25 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Kaylee McKeown wins women's 200m backstroke

Kaylee McKeown has made it two from two for Australia this evening with a huge victory in the women's 200m backstroke final.

The double individual Olympic champion from Tokyo 2020 covered the distance in 2.05.60... a new Commonwealth Games record!

Women's 50m world champion Kylie Masse of Canada took silver, +2.21 seconds back while Scotland's Katie Shanahan put in an excellent 2.09.22 to come away with bronze.

Just like in Japan, that's the backstroke double for McKeown at these Games.

Kaylee McKeown has won two individual gold medals at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

7:10 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Kyle Chalmers wins men's 100m freestyle

It wasn't another Commonwealth record, but the Rio 2016 Olympic gold medallist has started this session with a bang.

Fresh from setting a new Games record in yesterday's semi-final, Chalmers blasted home in 47.51 to comfortably win the men's 100m freestyle title.

Olympic 200m champion Tom Dean won silver in 44.89, while 2018 100m free champion Duncan Scott sealed bronze with 48.27.

You get the impression that Chalmers is swimming with some fire in his belly, and a point to prove. Impressive.

Here's what he had to say after:

On winning gold, after speculation around his relationship with Australian team-mates:

"It is a bitter-sweet feeling. Instead of enjoying the moment, there is a sense of relief. I hope I was able to inspire a lot of people at home going through similar things. I just hope no-one has to go through what I've had to in the last 48 hours.

"The lies and false truths getting put out there. It's nowhere near the truth at all. We are great friends and have great support. I am just grateful to be a part of the team and sharing that with every single team member."

On what the win means:

"It's special. Four years ago I came second by such a small margin, and it's something that has motivated me for a long period. It wasn't my best swim, it's not my best time but time does not really matter.

"What matters is getting the gold medal. That took all my courage to race and it was all about getting my hand on the wall first."

On if he is feeling support from Australia:
"I am big time. It's been overwhelming and I love it. The last 48 hours has been hell, an emotional roller-coaster. Speaking to my coach beforehand, I almost started crying - and I'm not an emotional person."

On making a 'sssshh' gsesture after his victory:
"It's something I'd thought about. Normally I'd envision doing a more powerful celebration after a win, but that one was special. It probably means more than giving a fist-bump or tensing muscles. I hope that sends a powerful mesage."

6:30 pm - Bull selfie?

Remember the amazing mechanical bull that wowed the crowed at the Opening Ceremony?

Well, now you can get a photo with it as it takes pride of place in Birmingham's Centenary square.

Fans and residents take photos with the Opening Ceremony bull, now stationed in Birmingham's Centenary Square.

5:53 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Ashley McKenzie retains men's under-60kg judo title

England was the real winner here, with a gold medal guaranteed before a blow was struck in the men's 60kg final contested by compatriots Ashley McKenzie and Samuel Hall.

In the end, it was a fairly comprehensive win for Glasgow 2014 champion for hyper-aggressive McKenzie, who landing a waza-ari before clinching the win shortly after.

Earlier, Australia and India took bronze medals as Joshua Katz beat Zambia's Simon Zulu and Vijay Kumar Yadav beat Cyprus' Petros Christodoulides.

5:40 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Michaela Whitebooi wins women's under-48kg judo title

The first judo title of Birmingham 2022 has been won by Michaela Whitebooi of South Africa.

The two-time African champion won the women's under-48 gold with a well-worked victory over India's ex-Commonwealth Games silver medallist Sushila Devi Likmabam.

The athletes couldn't be separated in normal time, but it was the South African who took the initiative in extra time taking down her opponent with a waza-ari after 25 seconds to secure the win.

5:15 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Ellesse Andrews wins women's keirin gold

New Zealand has a new track cycling star, and her name is Ellesse Andrews.

The Tokyo 2020 silver medallist has taken her talent to a different level here in Birmingham, and has now added the women's keirin title to her sprint and team sprint gold medals

England's Sophie Capewell takes silver with Kelsey Mitchell of Canada winning bronze.

4:55 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Laura Kenny wins women's scratch race

England have their first track cycling title of these Games!

And who else, but Great Britain's most successful female Olympian ever Laura Kenny?

Some amazing work from Grace Lister and Sophie Lewis put the five-time Olympic gold medallist in an excellent position, and she made no mistake in closing the race off from there.

The race happened in London's Lee Valley VeloPark, but you would have heard the crowd cheering from Birmingham there.

New Zealand's Michaela Drummond claimed the silver medal, while bronze went to Maggie Coles-Lyster of Canada.

4:39 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Georgia-Mae Fenton and Courtney Tulloch win gymnastics gold

It's raining gold for Team England at the artistic gymnastics and the Arena Birmingham is rocking!

Mae-Fenton scored 13.900 to secure the women's uneven bars title, with Australia's Georgia Godwin in silver (13.500) and South Africa's Caitlin Rooskrantz of South Africa  in bronze (13.433).

Tulloch recorded 14.400 in the men's rings to win another Commonwealth Games gold medal.

His compatriot Joe Fraser misses out on a medal behind Cyprus' Sokratis Pilakouris (silver - 14.300), and Canada's Chris Kaji (Canada - 14.266).

Fraser defied a burst appendix and a broken foot to help England secure the team gold medal two days ago. He described himself as 'hardcore' at the time, and I think even that could be an understatement.

4:25 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Maude Charron wins women's 64kg weightlifting gold

Canadian Olympic gold medallist Maude Charron as just lifted lifted 130 kg to win the 64kg gold medal with a new Commonwealth Games record!

In truth, the 29-year-old had already secured the title with a 127kg jerk and clean, but showing her champion spirit, decided to see how far she could push herself.

That extra lift meant that she won the final with a total score of 231kg, which was 15kg clear of her rivals.

Sarah Maureen Cochrane of Australia gets silver with 216kg, with bronze going to Islamiyat Adebukola Yusuf of Nigeria on 212kg.

4:07 pm - Canada's men and women progress in 3x3 Basketball

Canada Women are through to the 3x3 semi-finals after securing an impressive 17-11 win over Scotland, and Tata Wallack was the game's top scorer with six points.

It's been a great day for the North American nation on the court with Canada's men defeating much-fancied New Zealand 21-18 in their earlier quarter-final. Shout out to Jayden Bezzant, who scored 14 points in a losing cause for his team.

Next up, England's women will hope to lock in a place in the semi-finals when they take on Kenya at 5pm, while the host's men's team take on Canada at 10pm.

3:50 pm - Malaysia through to badminton final

Malaysia have cruised into the mixed team badminton final after a 3-0 win over England.

Peng Soon Chan and Yee See Cheah got their team off to the perfect start with a 2-1 win over Marcus Ellis and Lauren Smith.

Tze Yong Ng then made it 2-0 overall with a straight sets victory over Toby Penty, before Teng Fong Aaron Chia and Wooi Yik Soh sealed the best-of-five fixture with a 2-0 over Ben Lane and Sean Vendy.

Malaysia will face India in the gold medal match, after their victory over Singapore in the other semi-final. England will take on Singapore for bronze.

3:30 pm - South Africa edge Scotland in hockey

It's heartbreak for Scotland men's hockey, who go down 5-4 to South Africa at the University of Birmingham

After going down 2-0 early in the game, the home union regrouped and were in fact 4-3 into the final quarter.

Sensing, perhaps, a little complacency from their opponents, South Africa equalised before scoring a last-minute winner.

Hockey heavyweights England and India are up next.

2:50 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Joe Fraser wins pommel horse

The crowd at Arena Birmingham have gone WILD after local lad Joe Fraser, wins the pommel horse gold medal with 14.833.

Bad that's not even the best bit... he was competing with a broken foot!

He beats reigning champion Rhys McClenaghan of Northern Ireland, who seals silver with 14.133, ahead of Canada's Jayson Rampersad in bronze with 14.000.

2:25 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: England win triples lawn bowls

England have won the first lawn bowls gold medal of Birmingham 2022 - and it was a thriller!

The hosts dominated from the off and cruised into a 12 - 1 lead, before Australia hit back to make it 12 - 12.

But England kept their heads and in the final two ends to bring their total gold medal tally to 14 - which is second overall after Australia.

2:15 pm - Vibe check

If you want to know what the atmosphere is like on the ground today in sunny Birmingham, check this fan out below at the hockey.

He encapsulates the Commonwealth Games spirit perfectly.

1:55 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Singapore win women's team table tennis

Singapore have been utterly ruthless in this final against Malaysia.

Zeng Jian seals Singapore's 3-0 win, and fifth Commonwealth Games gold medal, in the women's table tennis team tournament.

The 25-year-old won the first two games against 11-3, 11-4, but there was a late bit of drama as Ho Ying hit back 11-8 to win the third and give her team some hope.

Ultimately though, Zeng was not to be denied, as she won the fourth and final game 11-5.

Our reporter Chloe Merrell spoke to the team after, and here's what they said:

Three-time Olympic medallist and world number 16 Feng Tianwei on reclaiming the women’s team gold after the shock loss to India four years ago:

“I am very excited and very happy to win this competition. I regret that in the last Games I didn’t win a gold medal so winning this gold medal this time is very satisfying.

“We have a very young team except for me but they put on an exceptional performance and I am very happy for them. When you look at the scoreline it may look like there’s a disparity but we have prepared thoroughly before coming to the tournament."

On Singapore’s celebration (Below):

“Our national day is fast approaching - 9th of August - and also because I love the country. I love Singapore.” (edited)

1:40 pm - MEDAL MOMENT: Jake Jarman wins men's floor final

A third gold medal of these Games for the twisting maestro who performs the most difficult routine of the artistic gymnastics men’s floor final to take the Commonwealth title.

The 20 -year-old scores a massive 14.666, which prompts high-fives from his competitors and an absolute roar of delight from the home crowd.

Canada's Felix Dolci wins silver (14.166) and Jarman's compatriot Giarnni Regini-Moran bags bronze (13.966).

Jerusalem is blasting out on the speakers as the Englishman collects his gold medal. What a rousing tune that is!

1:22 pm - One last haka

It has to be one of the most special sights in sport, the New Zealand haka.

Their men's and women's rugby sevens teams performed the Maori war dance after both securing gold medals in Coventry yesterday.

Special.

1:00 pm - Singapore go two up in table tennis

Tianwei Feng has beaten Li Siang Alice Chang 3-0, and Singapore now have one hand on the women's team gold medal.

Chang came out firing for Malaysia, but Feng used her experienced to weather the storm and secured the opener 11-9.

After that, it was plain sailing for the three-time Olympic medallist and 2010 world champion, who closed out the next two games 11-1, 11-7.

All of which means Singapore are 2-0 in a best-of-five final and Malaysia's Ho Ying has to beat Zeng Jian in a crucial singles fixture to keep her nation in the contest. No pressure!

12:37 pm: England and Wales dominate hockey

It's been a strong morning for the home unions in women's hockey.

The early match saw Wales beat Ghana 4-0 in Pool A.

Next up Scotland beat Kenya 11-0 in their Pool B clash, with Fiona Burnet, Sarah Jamieson, and Charlotte Watson all scoring doubles.

12:20 pm: Singapore take the lead in table tennis

Singapore doubles team Jingyi Zhou and Jian Zeng have beaten Malaysia's Karen Lyne and Ying Ho Mas 3-1 to put their nation 1-0 up overall in the women's team table tennis final.

The Singaporeans needed a wake up call, going down 7-11 in the first game, before finding their groove and taking the next three games 11-4, 11-6, 11-5.

Next up, Singapore's Tianwei Feng takes on Li Sian Alice Chang of Malaysia in singles.

Singapore table tennis fans cheer their team on at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

12:10 am - Kyle Chalmers scratches, Cody Simpson qualifies

Olympic gold medallist Kyle Chalmers decided to sit out the men's 100m butterfly heats this morning - likely to rest after his heroics in setting a new 100m freestyle Commonwealth Games record last night.

The fastest time in the 100 fly qualifiers was Josh Liendo of Canada, who blasted home in an impressive 51.36.

Joining him in the semi-finals will be Australia's Cody Simpson, who finished third in his heat with 52.47 and Simpson's compatriot Matt Temple, who won his heat with 52.28.

Former 50 fly world champion Ben Proud of England also gets through with 52.49, and South Africa's Chad le Clos in 52.65.

What a roar from the home crowd as local lad Chris Murray wins the men's 81kg weightlifting title!

The Leicester man lifted a total of 325kg in the final, which is also a new Commonwealth Games record

It was a tense finale, in which Australia's Kyle Bruce had to settle for silver by just 2kg, after unsuccessfully challenging the judges decision on his final lift.

Canada's Nicolas Vachon took bronze with 320kg.

Chris MURRAY said this after his thrilling win:

"The crowd were so loud, I tried to stay in my head space and lift the weights. It was hard to ignore them, after every lift I just had to celebrate with them because I don't think there will ever be a point in my career that I'll ever have that much noise again. It was incredible."

On the state of weightlifting in Britain:
"The future of British weightlifting is huge. We had Emily (Campbell, Olympic silver medallist) as flag bearer here and doing wonders out in Tokyo. She's going to smash it in a couple of days. Not only that but Fraer (Morrow, England) and Jess (Gordon Brown, England) coming home with medals too.

"The girls are doing amazingly well - it's time for the boys to do some catching up."

11:45 am - Cycling crash update

England's Ashley McKenzie is taking no prisoners in Birmingham.

Take a bow, sir.

11:23 am - Lay Jian Fang speaks to Olympics.com

Our reporter Chloe Morrell caught up with veteran table tennis star Lay Jian Fang after her 3-0 victory secured Australia a bronze medal in the women's team event against Wales.

“I am so excited!” Lay told Olympics.com after bagging her eighth Commonwealth Games medal.

Leading a young squad to Birmingham 2022 the six-time Olympian was particularly proud of her team’s effort.

“For this time I am not the only one person feeling pressure. We’re all at a similar level. Even when someone lost the next one kept going.”

Lay will return to action to try and win the one thing missing from her resume: Commonwealth gold. She will be back in action in the women’s singles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles.

And as for a Paris 2024 appearance, she coyly answered in between laughs: “I am not sure! I don’t know!”

Australia’s head coach is Irish, but revealed that his customary celebration will have to wait: “Normally [I'd celebrate with] with a pint of Guinness, but unfortunately that’s not going to happen. So a coffee and prepare for the singles matches.”

11:10 am - Adam Peaty and Kaylee McKeown power through heats

Adam Peaty didn't have to wait long to get back in the water following his fourth-place finish in the men's 100m breaststroke last night.

The Englishman secured the joint-fastest time in the 50m breast heats this morning (27.10) alongside South Africa's Michael Houlie, and qualifies for this evening's semi-finals.

This is 49-year-old Jian Fang Lay's sixth Commonwealth Games, and you can read about the Australian table tennis legend's extraordinary career here.

Up next Singapore will be looking to extend their remarkable Commonwealth Games record against Malaysia in the final.

10:00 am - Today's programme

Good morning and welcome to day four of the 2022 Commonwealth Games live blog.

The temperature has been turned up a notch inside and outside the venues today, with bright sunshine playing the backdrop as 28 gold medals are won and lost.

It's set to be a thriller at Arena Birmingham where five artistic gymnastics apparatus titles are on the line. South Africa's Caitlin Rooskrantz will take on defending champion Georgia-Mae Fenton of Team England in the uneven bars final. Cypriot Mario Georgiou will be looking to go back-to-back in the parallel bars as will Northern Ireland's Rhys McClenghan in the men's pommel horse.

After being denied gold by Nicholas Thomas of Trinidad and Tobago in the men's keirin, Scotland's Jack Carlin will continue his quest for a Commonwealth title in the men's sprint on the last day of track cycling.

In the swimming pool Carlin's compatriot Duncan Scott will be defending his title in the men's 100m freestyle. He faces a strong field including Olympic silver medallist Kyle Chalmers (who set the Commonwealth Games record last night), Team GB team-mate Tom Dean and Canada's Joshua Liendo Edwards.

Australian superstar Emma McKeon is set for a showdown for the ages against Canada's Maggie Mac Neil in the butterfly

Canada will also have a strong contender in the women's 200m individual medley. 15-year-old double world champion and all-around wonder kid Summer McIntosh will be the swimmer to stop in the event.

Hockey fans will have an eye on the men’s tournament where two big group matches are scheduled to take place. India will take on hosts England then, five hours later, antipodean rivals Australia and New Zealand will do battle.
