Chalmers In Olympic Final

The Team GB mixed relay team featuring Cameron Chalmers have reach the 400m final at The Tokyo Olympic Games.

The 24 year-old Guernseyman ran the first leg of the relay in a time of 45.86 seconds and the team came fourth in their heat and qualified as one of the fastest losers.

There were also excellent laps from his team mates Zoey Clark, Emily Diamond and Lee Thompson and they succeeded in creating a new British Record.

On 10 February 2019, Chalmers won gold at the British Indoor Athletics Championships to take his first senior British 400 m title. The time was a personal indoor best of 46.26 and saw him qualify for the European Athletics Indoor Championships.

Athletics Weekly ranked him as the third best 400 m runner in their UK men's merit rankings for 2019.

The final in Tokyo is scheduled for 1:35pm UK time tomorrow (31 July 2021).
