MELBOURNE, Mar 23 (Reuters) Jamaica's Sherone Simpson scored an upset victory over Olympic champion and compatriot Veronica Campbell to take gold in the women's 200 metres at the Commonwealth Games today.

Campbell took the silver in 22.72, well outside her personal best of 22.05.
South African Geraldine Pillay, silver medallist in the 100m, claimed the bronze in 22.92.
