Bolt Strikes Gold In Glasgow

Bolt Strikes Gold In Glasgow

The Commonwealth Games was always going to be about Usain Bolt, and the fastest man on the planet did not disappoint as he guided Jamaica to a gold medal in the men’s 4x100m relay final.

The six-time Olympic champion put on the afterburners in the final 100m to secure a convincing victory for Jamaica along with Jason Livermore, Kemar Bailey-Cole and Nickel Ashmeade in a Games record of 37.58 seconds, finishing ahead of England’s Danny Talbot on the final leg to claim his maiden medal at the Commonwealth Games.

Earlier, Jamaica set a new Games record of 41.83 seconds as Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce and her team-mates stormed to the gold medal in the women’s 4x100m relay, with the English quartet of Asha Philip, Bianca Williams, Jodie Williams and Ashleigh Nelson winning bronze and finishing behind Nigeria.
