GB quartet ease into relay final
Great Britain's men cruised into the final of the 4x400 metres relay at the World Championships in Moscow.
The quartet of Conrad Williams, Michael Bingham, Jamie Bowie and Martyn Rooney, none of whom competed in the individual event, battled with Jamaica for most of the race before settling for second.
They posted a time of three minutes 00.50 seconds, a season's best, to finish 0.09secs behind the Jamaicans.
It was a promising run given the team still have 400m semi-finalist Nigel Levine to bring in for the final on Friday night.
Rooney, whose split was timed at 44.8s, said: "The guys ran fantastically well. It was a very promising run from a rusty group of athletes."
Meanwhile, Olympic bronze medallist Robbie Grabarz missed out on a medal in the high jump.
The 25-year-old, who enjoyed a spectacular rise last year, winning the European title before taking a medal at London 2012, has endured a tough second season.
And there was no change in fortunes at the Luzhniki Stadium as three failures at 2.32m sent him out of the competition.
Grabarz's best clearance was 2.29m.
