the Jamaican team, is the only man to

joked that Blake may not want to return
to the Jamaican capital if he didn't win
"He's going to trouble me a lot be-
cause he expected me to get the gold in
the 100," Blake said. .
"I was in record-breaking shape, and
I'm still in that, but, ahem, I'm going to
hide from him when I get back home."
In the 100, Blake took bronze behind
South Africans Akani Simbine and Hen-
richo Bruintjies. In the relay, he ran the
anchor leg and made up some ground
but couldn't catch the gold medal-win-

the shooting circle.
They extended their lead to eight at
one stage and even though England
fought back, Jamaica still managed to
post a 33 27 advantage at the half.
Good defensive work by England at
