Also impressing were cyclists Dominique Mayho and Tre’ Shun Correia who were ninth overall in the men’s time trial team final.

Sprinter Scott Clarke reached the semi final of the 100metres where he placed eighth in a time of 11.22 seconds while team mate Kyle Webb finished fifth in in the qualifying heats in a time of 11.54 seconds .

Swimmer Nic Patterson placed 16 and 23 in the men’s 50m butterfly (27.41) and 200m freestyle (2:05.65) preliminaries while gymnast Sydney Mason was 12 in the women’s CIV final.
