Adam Gemili Takes 100m Commonwealth Silver



England's Adam Gemili said he was happy with his Commonwealth Games 100m silver medal.

Gemili, who finished second behind Jamaica's Kemar Bailey-Cole to claim his first senior international medal, said it was an experience he will never forget.

"My first time representing England - I'm so happy. That's something I'm never going to forget in my life," he said after the race.

"It's not about times, it's about position. The times will eventually come. This is just a stepping-stone for the European Championships and then the Olympics in Rio."

Gemili was quick out of the blocks but ultimately, running in his least favourite sprint, could not match the power of Bailey-Cole as the Jamaican overcame a poor start to come through and take gold.
