Jamaica Set New Commonwealth Games Record in 4x100-Metres

GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - AUGUST 02:  Usain Bolt of Jamaica greets fans as he celebrates winning gold in the Men’s 4x100 metres relay final at Hampden Park during day ten of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games on August 2, 2014 in Glasgow, United Kingdom.  (Pho

The biggest star of the event put together arguably the biggest performance, as Bolt anchored the Jamaican team of Jason Livermore, Kemar Bailey-Cole, Nickel Ashmeade and the Olympic gold medalist to a new record time of 37.59 seconds, per MailOnline Sport:

The Jamaicans hardly seemed bothered by the wet conditions, but they faced fierce opposition from England and Trinidad and Tobago, who took the silver and bronze, respectively.

Bolt went into the final straight chasing the English team by less than two feet and instantly powered his way forward, taking the gold by a huge margin, as shared by The Associated Press' Rob Harris:

Jamaica's 4x100-metres team lacked any real star power outside of Bolt, but in the end, it didn't matter. The fastest man in the world hardly broke a sweat in Glasgow and still dominated the field, and even other athletes, such as gymnast Max Whitlock, couldn't hide their admiration:

While some fans took issue with the emphasis networks placed on Bolt being at the Commonwealth Games, taking away the spotlight from the other athletes, there simply isn't anyone who dominates his particular sport the way Bolt does.

The 2016 Olympics in Brazil can't come soon enough, with the Jamaican superstar still seemingly several classes above the rest of the sprinting world.

 

England Take 4x400-Metres Relay

The Bahamas seemed to have the inside track at the gold on Saturday, but a phenomenal anchor leg by Matthew Hudson-Smith gave the win to England with a time of 3:00:046.

Daniel Awde, Conrad Williams and Michael Bingham laid the groundwork for Hudson-Smith, but going into the final lap, it seemed like a lost cause with the Bahamas' Chris Brown holding a significant lead.

The 19-year-old went around the track in 44.56, however, doing just enough to steal the gold.

Fellow sprinter Leon Reid was lost for words:

As shared by CNN's Christopher Saunders, the gap between both teams was truly minimal:

England put tremendous pressure on the youngster by having him run the anchor leg, and it didn't faze Hudson-Smith one bit. Judging by his performance on Saturday, English athletics may have just found a star of their own.

 

Nicola Adams Becomes 1st Female Commonwealth Games Boxing Champion

The 2012 London Olympics gold medalist defeated Northern Ireland's Michaela Walsh by split decision to take the first-ever Commonwealth Games gold medal awarded in women's boxing.

Walsh and Nicola Adams went toe-to-toe over the course of four rounds, with the 31-year-old from Leeds seemingly landing more significant punches. She wasn't surprised by the decision from the judges, as she told BBC Sport's Ben Dirs:

I'm overwhelmed. I can't believe it. The support I have had - I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has turned up today and to those who have supported from home.

I knew it was close through the rounds but I thought I had done enough to just take it. It's definitely been a Scottish rumble in the jungle.

Walsh disagreed with the verdict, saying she felt like she was "cheated of the gold":

It was a close fight but I wanted it that wee bit more. She is Olympic champion and the two judges had it level, but I know in my heart I won the fight.

I'd like to say congratulations to Nicola Adams, she is a great boxer for women's boxing but I do feel I have been cheated of the gold.

Adams has only lost one fight since the 2012 Olympics, but her fight against the much younger Walsh on Saturday turned into a real battle. The Northern Irish fighter seemed to be on the offensive a bit more in three of four rounds, but she lost her legs a bit in the final two, perhaps influencing the judges' decision.

BBC Sport NI's Joel Taggart was impressed by the challenge from the 21-year-old Walsh:

Ben Dirs agreed with the judges, however, as close as the fight may have been:

Adams and Walsh gave spectators a brilliant fight on Saturday, and it's clear women's boxing is here to stay at the Commonwealth Games. The event organisers couldn't have asked for a better show, and with time on her hand, Walsh will have plenty more opportunities at the gold.

Sunday will see 11 more gold medals won in badminton, cycling, hockey, netball and squash, before the 2014 Commonwealth Games come to an end with a spectacular closing ceremony.
