Belgrave Harriers William Sharman had to settle for a Commonwealth Games silver medal again in Glasgow last week.

The 29-year-old British champion matched his achievement from the 2010 Games in Delhi, India, in claiming the runners-up spot in the 110m hurdles in 13.36 seconds.

This time Jamaica’s Andrew Riley got the better of Sharman by winning in 13.32secs.

Scott Brathwaite from Barbados took bronze in 13.49secs.

Sharman said: “I can’t lie, I’m so happy to have got a medal.

“The competition in the Games this year has been very difficult, in fact much more so than it was four years ago.

“I felt strong at the start of the race, but I hit a hurdle really badly with my trail leg and it turned me sideways a bit.

“If it hadn’t been for knocking it I would have run a much quicker time.

“I was just flipping the gears and looking to move away from the field.”

Meanwhile fellow clubmate Phillips Idowu came sixth in the men’s long jump competition jumping 16.45m – the gold went to South Africa’s Khotso Mokoena (17.20m).
