2:35pm: Cycling

Wilson said Bond has been practising the 38.5km course all week so that he can know it back-to-front but that training and memorising went a little awry when he revealed to Wilson he had been taking part of the course the wrong way! Let's hope he follows the track today!

Four Kiwi boxers will be in quarter-finals action, including Glasgow gold medallist David Nyika, who meets Cameroon's Christian Ndzie Tsoye.

The others will be Alexis Pritchard, Leroy Hindley and Patrick Mailata.

The women's basketball team will meet Mozambique in their qualifying final in Townsville, while the men's and women's beach volleyball teams are both through to the quarter-finals.
