Day two of competition in Colombia sees eight more Australians taking it to the rest of the world when they line up for their event. First up for the morning was the men’s High Jump Brenton Foster lined up on the infield. Clearing 2.08m, Brenton will head into the final of the event, looking to continue his strong performance.
A personal best performance by Brandon Herrigan sees him cross the line in second place, automatically qualifying him for the semi finals in the 110m Hurdles. With an extremely strong time of 13.69 seconds, Brandon is clearly ready for the championships and will be a strong competitor in the hurdle event.

Ned Weatherly was out looking to make it through to the final in the hammer throw, after he was knocked out of the Shot Put on day one. After a foul on the first attempt, team captain Ned stepped into the cage for his second turn and ended up throwing his way into third position overall, and automatically qualifying for the final. Ned will now rest up and prepare for the final in the hammer, which is on tomorrow at 10:35AM AEST.
