The first heat of the men's 110m hurdles saw Canadian Charles Allen take first place. He raced to a time of 13.60 seconds.

Jamaica's Maurice Wignall came in a close second (13.68).

Heat 2 saw South African Shaun Bownes come first in 13.48 seconds. England favourite Tony Jarrett completed the track in 13.65 seconds.

Scotland's Christopher Baillie and Ricardo Melbourne of Jamaica qualified as the two fastest losers. Baillie claimed his season's best time of 13.95 seconds.

Welsh star Colin Jackson was first in heat 3 of the race. He was also the quickest qualifier with a time of 13.34 seconds. He commented:

"You can never be too confident, never, ever. I've got ten hurdles in front of me and I have to make sure I clear those well. That's where the focus is."

"I was anxious and really nervous getting on the track. I feel like I haven't trained for a long time. I'm pleased to be through."

"It's very important to get nervous. To make a mistake is the end of the race."

England's Daniel Greaves came second with a time of 13.78 seconds.

The final of the men's 110m hurdles will take place at the City of Manchester Stadium tomorrow evening.
