South Africa took the first gold medal on the fifth day of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow on Monday when they defeated Northern Ireland 19-10 in the men's lawn bowls triples final. The win made it two golds out of three in the bowls so far for South Africa following success in the women's fours on Sunday with New Zealander Jo Edwards taking the women's singles. In the absence of sprint superstar Usain Bolt, Jamaican hopes lie with Nickel Ashmeade, Kemar Bailey-Cole and Jason Livermore. Antigua's Daniel Bailey, Richard Thompson and Keston Bledman of Trinidad and Tobago, England's Adam Gemili and US-born Nigerian Mark Jelks, who has served a two-year doping ban, should all be podium contenders.
