Northern Ireland runner Katie Kirk improved her personal best by 0.15 seconds as she finished sixth in her 800m semi-final at the Commonwealth Games on Thursday.

Holywood athlete Kirk missed out on securing a place in the final but a powerful closing 100m saw her move up two places.

The 22-year-old Queen’s University club member had recorded a time of 2:03.00 in her heat to qualify.

Meanwhile, Leon Reid failed to make the final of the men’s 200m after running 21.03.

The European Junior silver medallist – who was disqualified in the 100m heats – was eighth in Thursday night’s third semi-final.
