Adam Gemili Claims Silver in the 100

England's Adam Gemili won a fantastic silver medal behind Jamaica's Kemar Bailey-Cole in the men's 100-metre final as the day's proceedings closed at Hampden Park.

While never seriously expected to claim gold, the 20-year-old took a huge step in his progress by beating the two other strong Jamaicans in the field, Nickel Ashmeade—who got bronze—and Jason Livermore. 

The tall figure of Bailey-Cole ran a confident 10 seconds flat for the gold medal, overtaking Gemili, who had a fantastic start.

A well-timed dip on the line won the silver medal for the Englishman in a time of 10.10 seconds. The gold medal winner was seemingly far superior despite his poor start, per the The Echo's Phil Jones:

Gemili was visually ecstatic as his silver medal was confirmed, and despite still having not broken 10 seconds, he is confident the time will come, per BBC Sport:

"The times will come. The medals are what count."

In the women's sprint final, Nigeria's Blessing Okagbare won in a Games-record 10.85 seconds, comfortably seeing off the challenge of Jamaica's Veronica Campbell-Brown.

It was an utterly serene performance from a woman who will likely be a serious challenger on the world stage in years to come.

Scotland claimed a gold medal in the T11/12 100-metre sprint through Libby Clegg, as the 24-year-old ran a season's best of 12.20 seconds.

The visually impaired sprinter—aided by guide Mikail Huggins—beat second-placed Maria Elisa Muchavo by over a second to rapturous celebrations from the Hampden crowd, per the BBC's Mark Pougatch:

The winning pair celebrated with the crowd long after the finish of the race and Clegg was hugely appreciative of the huge support per BBC Radio 5 Live:

We have been lots of fun saying hello to everyone. It has been an absolutely fantastic evening. We really appreciate the love everyone has given us. I am so pleased. It has been incredible. I hope this will set everyone else up to perform well now when it comes to their finals.

It was a tremendous performance from the Scot, who finally claimed the top prize having finished in second place at the Paralympics in both Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

Englishmen took all three medals in the men's singles squash on Monday as Nick Matthew beat James Willstrop 3-2 in the gold-medal match and Peter Barker overcame India's Saurav Ghosal for bronze.

Matthew was taken the distance in a hard-fought match, which finished 11-9, 8-11, 11-5, 6-11, 11-5, as he retained his Commonwealth title—the first man ever to do so. 

The pair have had a fierce rivalry over the years—they played out the final in Delhi in 2010 to the same outcome—and have previously not been on the best of terms with each other.

However, Matthew was magnanimous in victory, praising his opponent after a terrific contest, per BBC Sport:

What a battle. I take my hat off to James, what we've both been through the last few weeks, to put on a final like that. ...

Five weeks ago I was on a hospital bed after waking up from the anaesthetic with throbbing pain in my body. [Matthew had a knee operation].

How the medics have done it...they need to retire now because it can't get better than that. I better enjoy this for the next two weeks because my wife is expecting a baby. This is the best moment of my life but I'm sure they'll be an even better moment in a few weeks.

There was further squash success in the women's singles for England, as Laura Massaro won silver after being convincingly beaten by Malaysia's world No. 1 Nicol David in three games.

The overall quality and entertainment value in both squash tournaments led the BBC's Gary Lineker to question its continued exclusion from the Olympic lineup:

The 2014 Commonwealth Games continues on Tuesday in Glasgow with medals to be won in athletics, cycling, gymnastics, shooting, swimming, weightlifting and wrestling.
