PHOTO DIARY: Team Jamaica stars dazzle in the C'Wealth Games winners' circle

BACK IN STRIDE: After the painful ordeal she endured earlier this year, fans rejoiced with Veronica Campbell-Brown (left) as she returned to stunning physical form on the track this week, narrowly missing out on the gold medal in the 100M final at the Commonwealth Games in Scotland, with a time of 11.03 seconds. Kerron Stewart (right) also made her presence felt on the track, securing bronze. Nigeria's Blessing Okagbare took gold.

BORN TO RUN: Kemar Bailey-Cole (centre) meantime, proved he'll be a force to be reckoned with at next year's World Championships, after blazing his way to cross the tape ahead of the rest of the field in the Men's 100M Final, in 10 seconds flat. Compatriot Nickel Ashmeade took third place while England's Adam Gemili won the silver medal.

IN THE SWIM: A third-place finish in the 100M breaststroke saw Alia Atkinson (right) making a return trip to the medal podium in Glasgow, alongside gold medallist Sophie Taylor and silver medallist Lorna Tonks.

HISTORY MAKER: "This feel great. I hope that this will inspire the next generation of Jamaican throwers to do great things," O'dayne Richards told the media moments after creating history as the first-ever Jamaican to win gold in the shot put at the Commonwealth Games, achieving a distance of nearly 22 metres, ahead of his closest rivals who hail from New Zealand and Canada.

FANTASTIC FOUR: And saving the best for last: We couldn't have asked for a more thrilling result from the female quarter-milers who went above and beyond the call of duty, sweeping all three medals in the finals on Tuesday. Sport minister Natalie Neita-Headley was on hand to celebrate, girl-power style, with Stephanie McPherson (gold), Novlene Williams-Mills (silver) and Christine Day (bronze).
