GLASGOW (REUTERS) - Kemar Bailey-Cole ensured Jamaica reigned supreme on the track again by winning the 100m gold medal in the Commonwealth Games on Monday.

Bailey-Cole, who trains with compatriot and world record holder Usain Bolt, made a slow start out of the blocks but his long stride helped him claw his way back into the main group at the midway point on a blustery evening at Hampden Park.

With 10m remaining, he got on the shoulder of England's Adam Gemili and powered past him to triumph in a time of 10.00 seconds.

Gemili took the silver in 10.10 seconds while Jamaican Nickel Ashmeade claimed the bronze in 10.12.
