GOLD Coast Commonwealth Games boss Mark Peters has defended organisers after the horrific collapse of Scottish marathoner Callum Hawkins today. He had been more than two minutes in front of Aussie Michael Shelley in second spot. He fell over the kerb, got up, staggered further and then fell again, striking his head on a metal barrier.
"People should help him", she said.
Thankfully medical staff eventually reached Hawkins after a short delay, and he was taken to hospital.
He was subsequently taken to Gold Coast University Hospital.
"Callum has been taken to hospital for medical review following his collapse in the marathon as is standard procedure", a Team Scotland statement read. We are pleased to report he is sitting up and speaking with his dad and Team Scotland medical staff.
"Where on earth is the help?" he said.
Ron Lewis, athletics correspondent for British newspaper The Times, tweeted: "How pathetic are the Commonwealth Games organizers?"

Organisers said there are strict rules that can see athletes disqualified for seeking medical help. "The response of medical staff this morning was within agreed response guidelines and timeframes", said the statement.
"I was also concerned about the behaviour of a small number of bystanders who chose to take images". He added: "This is not in keeping with the spirit of GC2018". Hawkins had about a two-minute lead over Shelley but became disoriented in the humid conditions.
Seven of the 24 starters failed to finish and Northern Ireland's Paul Pollock was a late withdrawal due to a tarsal stress fracture he sustained last weekend.
A day after Canada qualified for the men's basketball gold medal final with a last-second three-pointer, Australia made sure there were was no chance for any late heroics with an 87-47 win. I understand that was part of the discussion (about Hawkins) at a point in time. "They told me to keep going and gave me encouragement".
"I saw him lying there and wanted to stop to see if he was alright".
"I just tried to run a smart race and come through and in the end I managed to do it, but it was really tough". You can not just wait at the finish line - people get in distress further down the course.
Shelley won the race in two hours, 16 minutes and 46 seconds with Uganda's Munyo Solomon Mutai taking silver (2:19:02) and Scotland's Robbie Simpson bronze (2:19:36).
