AS The Bugle went to press this week, Oldbury atlete Jodie Stimpson was celebrating her second gold medal of the Commonwealth games in Glasgow.

The Black Country triathlete, who was overlooked for the Olympics in 2012, gave her doubters something to think about when she won England's first gold of the games, and became Women's Triathlon Champion.
