Games-Simbine upsets stumbling Blake to win 100 meters gold Games-Simbine upsets stumbling Blake to win 100 meters gold

He's got two Olympic and two World Championship golds and is second only to Usain Bolt as the fastest sprinter in athletics history, but that impressive pedigree proved no use for Yohan Blake in the 100-meter Commonwealth Games final on Monday.

Blake, the fastest man into the final in 10.06, stumbled out of the blocks and dipped for bronze in a disappointing 10.19, behind South African silver-medallist Henricho Bruintjies' 10.17.

Simbine started slowly but showed great speed in the last 60m to win in a time of 10.03 for South Africa's eighth gold medal in this year's Commonwealth Games.

Henricho Bruintjies made it an even more memorable race as he finished second, ensuring a gold-silver double for South Africa. "That's what I want, to start with the Commonwealths, to take over the dominance of the sprinting world". "I'm looking forward to it", Blake said.

It was the biggest title yet and a major scalp for Simbine, 24, who finished fifth and a place behind Blake in the 2016 Rio Olympics 100m final.

Bolt, who retired previous year with eight Olympic golds including two 4×100 relay titles shared with Blake, tweeted his congratulations to his team mate and Simbine.

"I'm disappointed because I've been feeling good".

Yohan Blake, whose speed on the track is second only to Usain Bolt, will have his acclaimed countryman in the stands when he attempts to light up the athletics arena in the 100m final tomorrow.

The Botswana runner, who reached the 200 final at last year's world championships days after being refused entry to the stadium for the 400 final because of quarantine restrictions amid a viral outbreak, is targeting his first medal at a major meet.

Despite his retirement, eight-time Olympic champion Bolt will be the star attraction when he arrives in Gold Coast in an ambassador role. "I just focused on myself". "I'm sure Ian and others who were with him would have preferred that not to have happened, and so would we, but the reality is if the police believe a crime has been committed they will enforce the law".

Elsewhere around the competition Christopher Remkes claimed the Gold for Australia in the Vault at the Gymnastics, while in the Women's Floor Exercise Alexandra Eade won Gold, and Georgia Rose-Brown won Silver in the Balance Beam.

Ahye became the first woman from Trinidad and Tobago to win 100m gold, crossing the line in 11.14secs ahead of Jamaica duo Christania Williams and Gayon Evans on the Gold Coast.

"I fought for me, for my country, and for my gold medal", Mao said.

As expected, reigning world champion Tom Walsh from New Zealand won the men's shot put with 21.41m.

Better known for its pine trees than its worldwide athletes, the Australian territory had only won one Commonwealth medal in its history, but the Norfolk Islanders now have another medal to treasure after a trio of lawn bowlers sprung shock defeats against England and Canada to take a historic bronze.
