Huw Peacock marked his second Commonwealth Games appearance by finishing 11th in the hammer final.
With a best throw of 65.19 metres, well short of his personal best 68.48, the Hobart 25-year-old did not reach the final eight, but said he was pleased to be able to compete through a knee injury.
“I obviously wanted to throw a little bit further but with the knee injury, I'm happy with how far I got,” he said. “I wanted to come top eight, didn't quite get there. I knew my body could do that, but I just didn't quite do it on the day. I know that I could have made top eight but I put everything out there and I'm very happy with 11th.
“I've thrown over 65m almost every time I've competed this season so I'm happy to do that again.”
A multiple medallist at nationals, who also finished fifth at the 2009 world youth championships, Peacock was competing in a knee brace having been diagnosed with quadricep tendinopathy.
“I've been struggling with the knee injury for a couple of months. Getting into low positions when throwing the hammer is actually quite a burden on your knee so I will have eight weeks off now to let it recover.”
