SALLY Pearson pushed aside the drama that dominated the headlines for a week to win gold in the 100m hurdles at the Commonwealth Games.

    AFTER an incredible run of six silver medals Australian diving champion Matthew Mitcham finally won his first Commonwealth Games gold.

    USAIN Bolt reiterated his denial of calling the Commonwealth Games “a bit shit” after the world’s fastest man show finally got underway in Glasgow.

    SALLY Pearson has shrugged off a week of distractions to defend her Commonwealth 100m hurdles title in stunning style.
