Cassidy advances to Commonwealth Games Final

It was a slower, more tactical, T54 1500m semi-final for Josh Cassidy on Tuesday morning in Glasgow, but he was up to the task, finishing second and securing his spot in Thursday’s final.

Josh crossed the line in 3:29.81 behind England’s David Weir, who won in 3:28.24. Australian Richard Colman was third in 3:30.09.

Also competing on Tuesday was Michael Robertson – running in the 400m semi-final. Robertson crossed the line in 47.30 seconds to finish sixth in semi-final three. Putting things in perspective, Robertson remarked, “Really tough couple of races but I know I can compete with those guys and the experience bank just continues to grow! Now onto the Relay on August 1st where we look to make a push for that final!”
