GOLD COAST, April 9: Suriya Loganathan ran her personal best but that was good enough for a 13th place finish in 10,000m race while in the women�s 400m heats, Assam girl Hima Das made the semifinals with a timing of 52.11sec, which left her eighth in the overall standings at the Commonwealth Games here today.
However, there was also disappointment in the 400m as MR Povamma failed to move ahead, clocking 53.72sec in her heat to finish 24th overall.
On the other hand, shot putter Tejinder Pal Singh Toor took the eighth spot with a below-par show on the second day of athletics competition.
Suriya fractionally ran better than her earlier personal best of 32:23.96 as she clocked 32 minute and 23.56 seconds to finish 13th in a field of 19 at the Carrara Stadium tracks. � Agencies
