SCOTLAND’S Eilidh Doyle has won her third successive Commonwealth Games silver medal in the 400m hurdles.
The Perth athlete, who became the first female flag-bearer for Team Scotland at the Gold Coast opening ceremony, was in third place heading into the final metres but managed to out-sprint South Africa’s Wenda Nel to finish second.
Flying the flag and flying onto the podium! ???????
