Usain Bolt leads Jamaica to relay win at Commonwealth Games

On a wet track following torrential rain, Usain Bolt gave the Commonwealth Games a display of showmanship and speed as he anchored Jamaica's 4x100-meter relay team to gold and glory on Saturday.

Jamaica raced ahead of England in a games-record 37.58 seconds as the six-time Olympic gold medallist became a Commonwealth champion for the first time, enhancing the status of an event that can appear an anachronism in the modern world.

"Even though it was cold, the energy was warm," Bolt said.

Many doubted whether Bolt would turn up in Glasgow, having skipped the last two editions and being sidelined with a left foot injury earlier in 2014. The individual sprints were avoided, but the world's fastest man made it clear that he craved a Commonwealth gold in his already illustrious medal haul.
