Castlederg girl Lecky has qualified for Sunday's final of the High Jump.

Sommer was one of nine to hit the qualifying mark of 1.78.

Arlene Crossan produced a quality performance to qualify from her heat in the 400m hurdles.

Her time of 61.76 seconds saw her finish second behind a Czech Republic athlete.
