RICHARD KILTY's hopes of a Commonwealth Games 100m medal disappeared as he failed to progress from tonight's semi-finals at Hampden Park.

Stockton-based Kilty, who was crowned World Indoors champion earlier this year, could only finish sixth in his semi-final in a below-par time of 10.27sec.

Jamaican Kemar Bailey-Cole won the race in a time of 10.00, and will start as one of the favourites for the final later tonight.

Adam Gemili will be the only Englishman in that final after winning his semi in 10.07, with Harry Aikines-Aryeetey also missing out after finishing fourth in his race.

"I'm a bit disappointed," said Kilty. "I was hoping to come here and perform better than I have done all season, but I'm still stuck in this sluggish form that I've been in since my very first race outdoors."
