Where did Rohan Browning finish in the 100m final at the Commonwealth games?

The first Australian to reach a Commonwealth Games 100m final since 2010, Browning’s 10.20 finished a mere 0.06 seconds short of the bronze medal in Birmingham.

“I’m not happy with it,” Browning said. “It was just an ugly, painful kind of race and it’s one of those tough nights.

“A month ago there’s no way I saw myself in this final. I try to take each win and race in my stride but once you’re here you just want to be on that podium. That’s what it’s all about.”

Rohan Browning recent results

Injury has impacted Browning’s season so far – he missed the Australian titles earlier this year with a hamstring issue.

Prior to that, in February, he ran a meeting record 10.12 at the Adelaide Invitational to break Linford Christie’s 1992 mark.

Browning then returned form injury in style, finishing third in the final of the Golden Grand Prix meet in Tokyo in May.

The 24-year-old qualified for the final of the Diamond League Bislett Games in Oslo in June but had to settle for a seventh-placed finish.

That was the same result he had at the Stockholm Diamond League event, posting times of 10.28 and 10.38 in those respective races.

Browning did post an impressive time of 10.08 in the final of a meet in Switzerland, good enough for fifth place.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t take that form into the World Championships in Oregon last month, failing to progress from his heat with a time of 10.22.

Fingers crossed he can find his best in Birmingham.
