Commonwealth Games: Akani Simbine & Michelle-Lee Ahye win 100m titles

Akani Simbine

Jamaica's Yohan Blake and Trinidad and Tobago's Michelle-Lee Ahye will be bidding to be crowned the Commonwealth's fastest sprinters with the 100m titles held later on day five, while world champion Tom Walsh is a heavy favourite for the men's shot.

England's Asha Philip was fourth.

Stella Chesang fought off Kenya's Stacy Ndiwa to take the 10,000m gold for Uganda and win her maiden Commonwealth medal. The 17-year-old, who won bronze in the all-around and silver in the women's team final, finished ahead of Australia's Georgia-Rose Brown.

Speaking from the Games' official Twitter account, officials argued the Blake's torso was judge to be in front, crowning him the third place victor.

Simbine produced his customary top-end speed after a sluggish start to cross the line in first place with a time of 10.03 seconds. "From here on I can just work for more podiums in the future".

Samoa had also only won three Commonwealth gold medals before Mao picked up their first for these Games with a total lift of 360kg to beat Indian favourite Pardeep Singh in the men's 105kg class.

The 2011 world champion entered Monday's final as the hot favorite after posting the quickest time of the season and in the first two rounds, but stumbled early and never regained his form against the two runners to his right.

"After the 100m yesterday I felt happy with it but I felt media-wise it was a bigger deal that I didn't get gold, that it wasn't an achievement to win silver", she said.

Lula says innocent but ready to surrender
Throughout the whole ordeal, Lula has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and declared himself a victim of political persecution. Later, Lula Da Silva underwent a medical examination, mandatory for all inmates who are starting to serve their jail term.

"I believed in myself from the start of the race and I believed in what I could do and focusing on myself", Simbine said. "I just focused on myself".

New Zealand's Holly Robinson was beaten by Wales' Hollie Arnold at Rio 2016 but set a world record here of 43.32m.

"I'm so happy. I saw 44m and I screamed", said Arnold.

"I think my family and country will be very proud", Ahye said.

It was a better night for world and Olympic 800m champion Caster Semenya, who kicked off her bid for a Commonwealth double with a comfortable win in the 1,500m heats in four minutes and 05.86 seconds.

Blake - the 2011 World Championship 100m victor whose personal best of 9.69sec remains the second fastest in history behind former training partner Usain Bolt - had been heavily favoured but never recovered from a awful start.

Four years ago, the quartet of Esme Steyn, Susan Nel, Santjie Steyn, and Tracy-Lee Botha won gold at Glasgow 2014.

Earlier in the day, England's world indoor champion Andrew Pozzi qualified fastest for Thursday's 110m hurdles final, while team-mate and London 2012 bronze medallist Robbie Grabarz, competing at the Commonwealth Games for the first time at the age of 30, advanced to the high jump final by clearing 2.21m at his second attempt.
