Heather Jameson has bowed out of the T37 100m but gave another very creditable performance when finishing sixth in her IPC World Athletics Championships semi-final in Lyon.
Having set a season’s best in the 200m on Sunday, Jameson ran 15.26 in the shorter event, a time that was just two hundredths of a second outside her top effort for the current campaign.
The semi-final was won by home favourite, Mandy Francoise-Elie.
The Paralympic champion set a new championship record of 13.70, which was also just two hundredths of a second outside the world record the French star set last month.
Jameson, who is continuing to build vital championship experience after participating in London as a 15-year-old 12 months ago, will compete in her best event the Long Jump on Friday.
