Morning Session

After the excitement of last night for Oceania the good form continued this morning. Putting the disappointment of the Hammer Throw qualifying behind him, Matt Denny came out firing, qualifying for the Discus final with his first throw of 62.38m. Casie Purden (AUS) also qualified for the High Jump Final with a PB of 1.85m this was followed by Anna Laman (AUS) qualifying for the 1500m final and Luke Mathews (AUS) qualifying for the 800m semi final.

Afternoon Session

Tonight saw the Australian men's 4x100m relay team qualify for the final with a SB time of 40.18s. Joel Baden (AUS) finished 8th in the high jump with 2.17m and Filoi Aokuso produced 3 PB's, with her best throw being 53.92 to finish 7th in the women's discus final.

Tomorrow will see Rosa Flanagan (NZL) and Stella Radford (AUS) line up for the final of the women's 3000m steeple chase. Jack Hocking (AUS) in the Men's pole vault final, Katrina Hunt (AUS) 100m hurdles semi- final, Aliyah Johnson (AUS) in the triple Jump final, Australia's Matt Denny and Mitchell Cooper in the Discus final, Luke Mathews (AUS) in the 800m semi-final and Australia's men's and women's 4x400m teams in their respective heats.

So still plenty of action to come from our Oceania athletes tomorrow and good luck to all of them.
