West Australian Jody Henry in nervous wait for Games
The Sunday Times
August 15 2010

WEST Australian 400m national champion Jody Henry faces a nervous wait after again putting her best foot forward for an individual berth at the Commonwealth Games, winning in a B-qualifying time of 52.91sec on the Gold Coast on Saturday.

The win was the final chance for Henry and the women's one-lap relay contingent to vie for an individual berth, with the selection period ending Sunday.

None of Australia's 400m women have achieved the A-qualifying time of 51.90sec, leaving any individual berths up to the discretion of selectors, who meet on Monday to finalise the team.

The Sunday Times understands that while Athletics Australia has ruled a strict A-qualifying requirement, special consideration will be given to national champions.

However, AA high performance manager Eric Hollingsworth said: "I don't want to pre-empt anything, but the aim was an 'A', so the likelihood is she'll just be in the relay.

"There are a number of people who got Bs who aren't in the team, so she's not the only one."

Meanwhile, fellow West Australians Steve Hooker and Ben Offereins competed in difficult conditions at the London Diamond League early Saturday morning (WA time).

Decorated pole vaulter Hooker continued to struggle in the inaugural year of the top-tier competition, failing to clear the opening height of 5.51m, but he was not alone as a torrential downpour suspended the event for 30 minutes and series-leading 0French rival Renaud Lavillenie also no-heighted.

The difficulty of the conditions was highlighted in the results with Polish champion Lukasz Michalski winning the competition with a low 5.71m, followed by US veteran Derek Miles with 5.61m.

Third place was secured with an opening-height clearance.

One-lap national champion Offereins led the 400m B field into the home straight, before fading to finish fourth in 46.59sec.

Offereins, whose task was made more difficult after he was forced to trudge through a waterlogged inside lane, finished behind a trio of Britons, led by Conrad Williams in 46.09sec.
