At the same time she also ran in the heats of the 60m Hurdles finishing in 6th place. Both Lyle and Ciara each ran 4 races on the day, a testimony to their high level of fitness. Lyle's first race was the U18 400M heats in which in he finished in 3rd place in a time of 53.56 thus qualifying for the semi-finals where he finished in 5th place in a time of 54.53 but didn't qualify for the final. Later in the afternoon he finished 3rd in the heats of the 200m in a time of 24.28 and qualified for the semi-finals where he finished 4th in a time of 24.19. Ciara's first race was also the U18 400m where she finished second in her heat in a time of 59.81 and one hour later competed in the final where she finished in 6th place in a time of 60.88. In the afternoon she won her heat in the 200m in a a time of 27.13. She went even quicker in the semi-final when she finished in second place in a time of 26.71 but just missed out on a place in the final.
