Bahamas athlete Chris Brown is targeting a Glasgow Commonwealth gold to complete his global set of medals.

The 35-year-old is aiming to win his first Games title when he runs in the 400m in Scotland, reports BBC Sport.

Brown has previously won gold medals at the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton, Canada and he also won gold at the 2012 London Olympics as part of the successful 4x400m relay team. 

His best performance at a Commonwealth Games, however, is the bronze medal finish he and his Bahamas teammates secured in Manchester in 2002, something he wants to put right in Scotland later this year.

"I am definitely looking forward to closing my books and have a complete set of medals - World indoors, World outdoors, Olympics," he said.

"It would definitely mean a lot to me, knowing that I have a commonwealth medal to go with the rest - the icing on the cake."

To do so, he will have to beat current 400m Olympic champion Kirani James, but the Bahamian isn't focusing on anyone other than himself.

"Right now, I see myself and the clock," he said. "I really don´t see anyone as my main competitor.

"When I compete, I compete against the clock and compete against myself. I don´t worry about the rest of the guys in the field. On any given day, anything can happen."

British hopes in this event will lie with the likes of Nigel Levine and Michael Bingham. The Games begin on July 23.
