Temperatures should reach a high of around 18C - 19C through the central belt and Grampian. A couple of degrees lower elsewhere.

Jamaican athletics expert wants Scottish sprint link

Graham Fraser

BBC Scotland

Anthony Davis, a 62-year-old Jamaican who is one of the leading sports administrators from the Caribbean island, wants to create a link between Jamaica and Scotland that could see Scottish sprinters train with the best in the world.

Davis, who competed at the 1980 Olympics, is a student in Glasgow and has studied how Scots organise athletics events.

Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Yohan Blake

He has held initial talks with athletics bodies to create a programme where Scottish sprinters would train in Jamaica while Jamaican officials would come over to Scotland to learn more.

Read the full story here.

Hampden hopes

Scottish athletes Eilidh Childs and Guy Learmonth will get the chance to win Commonwealth medals tonight at Hampden.

Eilidh Child is after a 400m hurdle medal

Eilidh Child will be a favourite for one of the medals in the 400m hurdle finals after she produced a

strong performance to win her last heat with a time of 55.56 secs. She will face still competition from Jamaican runner Kaliese Spencer and Lauren Wells from Australia who will both fancy their chances of causing an upset.

Guy Learmonth proved a crowd favourite when he managed to qualify for the 800m final by two hundredths of a second on Wednesday night. However, the 22 year-old from Perth admits that he will need to

run the race of his life if he is to beat Olympic gold medalist David Rudisha in tonight's final.
