BREAKING NEWS: Dunford bags Kenya's first Gold in Delhi

Kenya's Jason Dunford has spoiled Geoff Huegill's bid to complete a perfect comeback to the pool by narrowly winning the men's 50m butterfly final at the Commonwealth Games on Wednesday.
Dunford (23.35sec) touched the wall just ahead of Huegill (23.37), with veteran South African Roland Schoeman (23.75) back in third.
Huegill's silver medal still represents a great achievement for the 31-year-old, who lost 45kg to return to the sport after quitting in 2004.
Huegill was always likely to face some stiff opposition in the final, but his task was made slightly easier when one of his main competitors, Australian teammate Andrew Lauterstein, pulled out of the final due to a bout of Delhi belly.
