Glasgow 2014 Logo

Glasgow, SCO - Athletics (track and field) started today at the 2014 Commonwealth Games with the Canadian team recording a pair of top eight finishes, a new Commonwealth Games record, a new personal best and nine athletes qualifying to further rounds.

Opening athletics competition today was the women’s marathon where Lanni Marchant of London, Ont., fought hard for a fourth place finish in 2 hours 31 minutes and 14 seconds. Lanni, who was aiming for a top five finish, started to cramp near the end but did everything she could to end strong. “I’m feeling alright, I am pretty happy with it”, comments Lanni. “I was trying to catch them but around 37-kilometres my calf started to cramp on me a little so I had to make sure to run smart so I didn’t completely cramp up. When the Aussie caught me I figured my medal contention might be up but I ended up catching fourth place.”

In the evening session Mohammed Ahmed of St. Catharines, Ont., raced to a fifth place finish at Hampden Park in the men’s 5000-metres. Mohammed crossed the line in a new personal best of 13:18.88, 10-seconds faster than his previous personal best. Read more »
