Woodford Green with Essex Ladies’ Daniel Awde claimed the club’s first gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games as part of the England team which won the 4x400m relay last night.

England finished in a time of 3.00.46, putting them just five hundredths of a second ahead of the Bahaman quartet in second place.

Trinidad and Tobago came in third place in 3.01.51.

Awde ran the penultimate leg, handing the baton to anchorman Matthew Hudson-Smith, with England trailing the Bahamas.

Hudson-Smith seized the initiative, though, and out-sprinted 35-year-old Chris Brown to power across the line and see England to gold at Hampden Park.

Conrad Williams and Michael Bingham ran the first two legs, providing the platform for England to extend their lead at the top of the medal standings heading into the final day of competition.
