In Athletics, Anneliese Rubie finished 7th in her first international 400m final. The two time national champion and Olympic relay finalist contested what was arguably the strongest women’s 400m Commonwealth Games final in history, running 52.02. Rubie will now turn her sights to the 4×400.
In the women’s 200m semi final Larissa Pasternatsky was 4th. Pasternatsky has had a phenomenal season running personal bests at 100 and 200 and making her debut in the green and gold of Australia at this meet.
