Davies reaches World 800m final
David Davies (right) is renewing his challenge to Grant Hackett
David Davies set a new personal best as he qualified in style for Wednesday's 800m final at the World Championships.

Davies finished second in his heat and fourth overall with a time of seven minutes 51.92 seconds - just shy of the British record.

"It's a big personal best for me. It's going to help my 1500m as well as it's good practise," he said.

"I was a bit sluggish as I haven't raced for a while, but I felt quite strong in the end."

Davies' main rival in his preferred 1500m discipline Grant Hackett was the fastest qualifier at 7:47.62secs.
