Uganda's Kipsiro takes gold
Canada's Cam Levins won bronze in the 10,000 metres on Friday at the Commonwealth Games, while Shawnacy Barber captured bronze in the pole vault.
Levins, a 25-year-old from Black Creek, B.C., took the lead coming into the home stretch and led until about the final five metres, finishing in 27 minutes 56.23 seconds.
Moses Kipsiro of Uganda won gold in 27:56.11, while Josphat Kipkoech Bett of Kenya ran 27:56.14 for the silver.
Barber, a 20-year-old who was born in Canada — he lists Toronto as his hometown — but grew up in the U.S., cleared 5.45 metres for third in the pole vault.
England's Steven Lewis and Luke Cutts both cleared 5.55, with Lewis taking the gold based on fewer misses.
