'You've got to win' - Blake fastest into 100m final after Bolt warning

'You've got to win' - Blake fastest into 100m final after Bolt warning

Simbine took a surprise victory in 10.03sec, leading a South African one-two as Henricho Bruintjies took silver in 10.17.

Blake, who was the clear favourite for the title in the absence of the now retired Usain Bolt, made a awful start as he stuttered horribly out of the blocks. "I'll speak to my coach, see what he says and tomorrow I'll come and lay it down".

"I'm disappointed because I've been feeling good".

'I didn't get the start and I was all over the place'. "I couldn't recover from it".

Which he duly did, leaving Blake searching for answers.

The third fastest man of all time, Blake topped qualifying with a time of 10.06 and had been warned jokingly by Bolt not to come home without gold in his luggage.

Coe earlier insisted that athletics had plenty of talent to remain in a healthy state after Bolt, the eight-time Olympic champion, 100m and 200m world record-holder and 2014 Commonwealth relay gold-medallist.

"Well done @YohanBlake. Keep putting in the work".

"It's my first global title and for me it's a milestone, a stepping stone towards the world championships, and the Olympics and more competitions and more worldwide competitions", said Simbine.

Blake clocked 10.06sec to qualify quickest and he did it easily, looking across twice at a fast-closing Adam Gemili of England in his semi-final on Sunday.

Blake will have few bright lights to share the stage at Carrara Stadium, with Canada's triple Olympic sprint medallist Andre de Grasse snubbing the event to focus on the outdoor season. It was just never meant to be I guess.

Protests begin in Chennai against IPL
Russell continued to whack the CSK bowlers, as he completed his half century to set a monumental target for the home side. While Dhoni didn't go for the big shots, he gave Billings the room to do so and together, they steadied the innings.

"Being able to run in lane eight and lane nine with Henricho and placing first and second with him, it's really unbelievable".

It was quite apt that Bruintjies and Simbine shared the podium as they have been at the forefront of South African sprinting the last four years.

Michelle-Lee Ahye from Trinidad and Tobago won the women's 100m in 11.14 ahead of Jamaicans Christania Williams and Gayon Evans.

Home-town hero Pearson, the 100 metres hurdles world champion and face of the Games, was forced to pull out with a serious Achilles injury, announcing her decision the day after the opening ceremony in a major dampener to the Games. He was also the fastest qualifier for the final.

Even with the absence of Wayde van Niekerk and reigning champion Kirani James, the men's 400m boasts quality and looks to be a battle between Botswana's flamboyant Isaac Makwala and Grenada's Rio Olympic finalist Bralon Taplin.

A new photo from the tight finish in the blue riband event has led many commentators to declare it should have been much worse for the second fastest man of all time.

The other major track title today went to Uganda's Stella Chesang in the women's 10,000m.

"The crowd was absolutely magnificent. It's really frustrating for me". "It's very important for me to have one in my trophy case". Fellow Aussie Jemima Montag took gold.

England's James Willstrop beat Paul Coll of New Zealand to win the men's squash, while New Zealander Joelle King was crowned women's champion with victory over English player Sarah-Jane Perry.

And Scottish bowling great Alexander Marshall, a victor at the last four Games, suffered men's pairs defeat alongside Paul Foster to Daniel Salmon and Marc Wyatt of Wales.
