Andrew Riley won the 110-meter hurdles gold Tuesday to complement his teammate Kemar Bailey-Cole’s 100-meter gold medal on the track at the Commonwealth Games, clinching both high-profile sprint races for Jamaica.

Next up will be the 4×100-meter relay, where Jamaica will be favored when world record holder Usain Bolt makes his only appearance of the athletics program in Glasgow.

Due to a left foot injury, Bolt didn’t attempt to qualify for the individual sprints. The relay qualifying is on Friday, with the final on Saturday.

Jamaica’s women sped to a clean sweep of medals in the 400 meters, with Stephanie McPherson taking gold, Novlene Williams-Mills the silver and Christine Day the bronze.
