Cameron Reid another with a PB from 1:57.04 to 1:56.21 in his first round heat taking him into the final where he finished a very creditable 5th.
Ethan Wiltshire looked like he was destined for a medal in the Inter Boys 200m, he had the fastest time going into the Semi's with a 21.97s PB, but unfortunately he damaged his toe in the semi's and had to withdraw after qualifying in his semi with another great run of 21.98, hopefully this will improve soon.
