There was no success for either Rusheen McDonald or Edino Steele in the Men's 400m at the BAHAUS Athletics meeting in Sweden today.

McDonald made a flying start and was leading off the final bend, however, he failed to see the race out and finished sixth with a time of 45.55 seconds.

Steele came home eighth in a time of 46.17.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Machel Cedenio took the honours, with a winning time of 44.97.

Meanwhile, Simoya Campbell could only finish a disappointing sixth in the Women's 800m.

Campbell, who has a season’s best of 1:59:26, clocked 2:01:57.

The race winner was France’s Remelle Lamote (1:59:91).

Campbell was unhappy at the outset, and raised her hand to halt the start of the race.

The Jamaican athlete explained her actions when saying: “They took too long to start.”
