LIVE: IT’S been an eventful start to Day 7 with Usain Bolt denying he called the Games ‘s**t’ and Sally Pearson copping an astonishing spray from the Aussie head coach.

AUSTRALIA’S head coach has described Sally Pearson as a “bad example” in an astonishing statement on the eve of her Games defence.

IT was expected to bring the magic and the FFA Cup didn’t disappoint - with 32,00 tuning in on Fox Sports and many more on social media.

PETER Siddle insists he’ll soon be bowling the 140km/h that will put him back in the baggy green

AWESOME. That’s the only word I can think of that adequately describes my first-ever 24 Hour race, in Belgium last weekend, writes Craig Lowndes.

Certificate of Merit

MCC Certificate of Merit recipient Tony CharltonThe Certificate of Merit was instituted to recognise those MCC members who had rendered outstanding service to the club but who may not, for whatever reason, be considered for Honorary Life Membership or the Hans Ebeling Award.

In effect, it is an intermediate “gong” that enables the club to formalise its appreciation of special contributors.

Anyone may nominate a member for a Certificate of Merit. The nominee is considered by the committee and if deemed appropriate is presented with the framed certificate at a club function.

One member, Brian Adams, has received both a Hans Ebeling Award (tennis) and a Certificate of Merit, the latter in recognition of his magnificent contribution to the Long Room Wine and Food Society.

The complete list of Certificate of Merit recipients is:

• Percy Sitch
• Geoff Swan
• Dudley Phillips
• Brian Adams
• Tony Charlton
• Rob Jenkins
