Congratulations to Carys on her 800m silver medal !

At the gun Joyline Cherotich (Kenya) set a fast pace opening around 8-10 metres by the 200 metres mark. Carys had settled into 2nd place and by the bell she had closed the gap to 3-4 metres.C herotich continued to lead but as she tired Carys led the eventual medalists past her at 600 metres. As the came off the bend into the finishing straight Abitha Mary Manuel (India) made an effort to take the lead but Carys responded and began to open a gap.W ith around 60 metres Amy Harding-Delooze (Australia) produced an amazing burst catching Carys with about 10 metres remaining to win by a stride.

������¯������¿������½The girl that won is a brilliant athlete,������¯������¿������½ said Carys. ������¯������¿������½I couldn������¯������¿������½t have asked for any more from myself. Everybody in athletics got a medal so that������¯������¿������½s pretty amazing, to get a Commonwealth medal you can������¯������¿������½t get any better than that. I������¯������¿������½ve enjoyed the experience so much.������¯������¿������½
