Commonwealth Games 2018: Callum Hawkins collapses during marathon

Temperatures were said to be around 28 degrees Celsius during the race, held in the Gold Coast, south of Brisbane.

Hawkins regained acutely conscious and was ready to take a seat up whereas nonetheless on the scene of his collapse.

"He initially refused treatment but now has been taken in an ambulance to hospital".

Team Scotland wrote on social media that Hawkins had been taken to hospital for monitoring, but medical staff had "no major concerns" about his condition.

Former athlete Steve Cram, commentating for the BBC, said it was a "disgrace".

In a later tweet, Team Scotland wrote that Hawkins was sitting up and talking, but was undergoing further tests as a precaution.

Commentators echoed the thoughts of millions around the world when they screamed out for somebody to help distressed Scotland marathon runner Callum Hawkins.

As you know the worldwide rules are very clear in that an athlete has to declare themselves unfit to race (before they can receive any medical attention).

"GOLDOC can confirm that during the race, medical staff were posted at 500metre intervals in the final kilometres of the course all of which had radio communications", the release said.

CEO Mark Peters said the every assistance possible was being offered to Callum and Team Scotland.

Peters went on to defend the actions of the event's medical workforce, together with that GOLDOC had quite a lot of measures in place to verify athlete welfare.

"I was also concerned about the behaviour of a small number of bystanders who chose to take images". "The response of medical staff this morning was within agreed response guidelines and timeframes", said the statement. "This is not in keeping with the spirit of GC2018", he said.

Eventually medical officials made it to Hawkins' position on the bridge.

Earlier, when Hawkins first collapsed, McAvaney labelled his condition "completely and utterly distressed".

Hawkins' Scotland team-mate Robbie Simpson took bronze behind Mutai. You would think he is clearheaded enough that if you can just keep going a bit longer he will get a gold medal.

"I understand that was part of a discussion at a point in time, because incredibly athletes in whatever state they are want to finish", he said. I'm sorry if you're watching this at home, it's really distressing.

Fellow Tanzanian Saidi Juma Makula collapsed close to the finish line before being helped into an ambulance - one of seven of the 24 starters who failed to complete the race.

"A couple of mates told me that Callum Hawkins was in trouble".

Australia's Mike Shelley passed the prone Hawkins and retained the marathon title he won in Glasgow four years ago in two hours, 16.46 minutes.

"I was like "Oh jeez, here we go".

"So getting up that last little hill was brutal and I saw the wind start to get me as well".

The women's race was obtained by Namibia's Helalia Johannes, whereas Australia cherished double success throughout the wheelchair marathon races with Madison de Rozario and Kurt Fearnley taking gold throughout the ladies's and males's T54 respectively.
