Pageot took the bronze medal after scoring 6533 points and collecting several personal bests.  Christian Paynter wasn’t far behind on 6277 (5th), a big personal best for him in the Open Decathlon and closing in on the Universiade qualifying standard.

Usain Bolt was the star attraction at the debut of the team based Nitro Athletics on Saturday night.  MUAC’s Ellen Schaef was amongst the action as part of Team New Zealand, running 600m in the opening race of the night, the medley relay, where her strong run ensured NZ would beat the Bolt All Stars. There was some thrilling competition all night and with a sell out for the final this Saturday, early indications are positive for this made for TV format. Some tickets remain for Thursday night’s Round 2 so don’t miss out!
