Adam Gemili has told ITV News he hopes to use his Commonwealth silver medal as a springboard to challenge the Jamaican and American sprinters at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
"The Jamaicans and the Americans have always been levels ahead of everyone and I think they still are.... but we are getting there eventually," the 100m silver-medallist said.
The 20-year-old admitted he was "overwhelmed by emotion" at winning his first major senior medal of his career in front of a raucous crowd at Hampden Park.
Pop princess Kylie stole the show as she closed what has been dubbed the 'best ever' Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
The Jamaican sprinter said the only negative at the Commonwealth Games was the weather, as he hailed the "brilliant" event in Glasgow.
Pop princess Kylie will be top of the bill tonight as the Commonwealth Games comes to a close.
