Jack Laugher defends diving gold at Commonwealth Games

Estimated read time: Less than a minute

BIRMINGHAM, England — English diver Jack Laugher extended his dominance in the one-meter springboard event to take a third straight gold at the Commonwealth Games. The 27-year-old Laugher continued a run that also included gold in Glasgow in 2014 and on Australia's Gold Coast four years ago. Former Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas crashed early in the individual time trial in Wolverhampton, striking a barrier when making a sweeping turn. Thomas was able to remount his bike and recovered well to claim the bronze medal behind winner Rohan Dennis, a double time trial world champion. Earlier, Jamaica caused a major upset in netball when it beat gold medal favorite Australia to reach the semifinals with a 57-55 comeback win.
