Athletics: Heffernan 8th


Robert Heffernan finished 8th in the men’s 20k walk – living up exactly to his world ranking.
Heffernan, who had led after the halfway mark, was unable to keep pace with the leaders after the 15 kilometres mark and finished in 1 hr 20.36 minutes, over a minute behind race winner Valeriy Borchin of Russia.
Joanne Cuddihy, who has been struggling with injury, trailed home in sixth in heat four of the women's 400m in a time of 53.32.
