Lynsey Sharp has won the silver medal in the Commonwealth Games 800 metres.

The Capital athlete, who had “get out strong and commit” written on her hand, looked to be in danger of missing out on a medals spot midway through the race.

However, she put in a late rally to speed round three athletes ahead of her and pipped Uganda’s Winnie Nanyondo to clinch second place.

The race was won by Eunice Sum of Kenya.
