Israel Olatunde ran a season’s best of 6.70 seconds in the 60-metre heats, but it wasn’t enough for a place in the semi-finals.

The Irish contingent at the championships is smaller than usual as some athletes have decided to skip the event to focus on the Olympics, which take place in Paris this summer.

A team of just 10 Irish athletes, contesting six events, will compete in Glasgow over the coming days.
