WATCH: Chalmers sets Guernsey all-comers' best

CAM CHALMERS stunned Footes Lane yesterday with the fastest 400m ever run on domestic soil.

After 19 months without racing, the surprise entrant sped to a 45.98sec. clocking and gave himself some real impetus for his imminent Olympic qualifying mission.

His shattering of Dale Garland’s all-comers’ record – 46.50 from 2007 – made him the uncontested star of the domestic track and field season opener.

And he will be taking that as a confidence booster ahead of rejoining the UK race scene and hopefully overwriting his 45.64 personal best in coming weeks.

‘To go sub-46 first race of the season, first race in a year and a half, over here and not against the level of competition I’m going to face this summer, that’s a really good sign,’ Chalmers said afterwards.

Earlier, Chris Bain had won a competitive 1500m and Josh Duke upset Josh Allaway in a 100m head-to-head.
