Sprint stars look to step out of Bolt shadow


GLASGOW: Men’s and women’s titles in the blue riband 100m will be up for grabs on the second day of track and field competition at the Commonwealth Games on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). In the absence of sprint superstar Usain Bolt, Jamaican hopes lie with Nickel Ashmeade, Kemar Bailey-Cole and Jason Livermore. Antigua’s Daniel Bailey, Richard Thompson and Keston Bledman of Trinidad and Tobago, England’s Adam Gemili and US-born Nigerian Mark Jelks, who has served a two-year doping ban, should all be podium contenders.
