Thames Valley Harriers athlete representing Scotland in Gold Coast

Thames Valley Harriers athlete Zoey Clark took to social media to express her disappointment at not reaching the women’s 400m final at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Competing for Scotland in the Australian city of Gold Coast, the 23-year-old progressed to the semi-finals after clocking 52.07s to come second in her heat.

In the first semi, Clark narrowly improved to finish in a time of 52.06 to come fourth.

However, with only the top two qualifying automatically, the Scottish athlete faced a nervous wait to see if was one of two fastest losers.

Sadly, Clark missed out by just over half a second and the Thames Valley Harriers member took to Twitter after her elimination.

Clark posted: “Devastated not to make the final. A bit of a messy race and just couldn’t quite hold it together at the end. There are still positives to take, and as always I will learn from the experience.”
