Scotland's Lynsey Sharp has qualified for this summer's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow after winning the 800m at the Grand Prix City Lokeren.

The 23-year-old's time of 2:02.42 breached the qualifying mark, and was two seconds faster than runner-up Mathias Charline of Luxembourg.

The event in Belgium was one of three more opportunities Sharp had to make the required time for Glasgow 2014.

And after the race, she tweetedexternal-link: "I DID IT!!!!!! SEE YOU ALL IN GLASGOW."

Sharp is the current European champion and has had surgery twice in the last year to resolve a painful leg tendon injury.
