Report from Caroline Marler: Unexpectedly won the 800m gold -very, very pleased and time was good too – 2.47.41 (best since last summer – had only done one this year – 3.03 at windy Grimsby!))
2nd K.Heagney (Australia) 2.48.29
3rd Ulla Karneback 2.51.76
Achilles now being iced as sore but don’t run 400m heats until Friday.
No more medals I am afraid! I won my heat of the 400m. but it aggravated the existing achilles problem so that although I started the final the next day I couldn´t complete the race. It hurt a lot from the gun and after 300 I couldn´t put any power through the ankle and i dropped out – could have limped in and finished 4th but there didn´t seem any point. It is too sore today to participate in the relays which is a shame but I can´t complain too much – I have a gold! I will send a photo later.
We are off to Iguassu and the AMAZON NEXT.
