David Calvert moved up to second place following the second of three days competing in the open full bore rifle singles on Wednesday.

Calvert who along with Martin Millar won the full bore pairs gold medal on Monday, was within striking distance of England's Glyn Barnett.

Barnett had scored 255.44 with Calvert on 255.41 after moving up from fifth place on Tuesday to a possible silver medal.

Millar, meanwhile, was in 11th place on 253.35.

In the men's trap singles final, Coleraine's Thomas Allen and Philip Murphy missed out on medals.

Allen was fifth with a score of 139 points with Murphy seventh on 118 while the winner Michael Diamond of Australia scored 148.

In the men's 10m air pistol, single heats, Hugh Stewart was 21st scoring 556 out of 600.

Meanwhile, on the track, Kelly McNeice from Lisburn AC twice claimed a personal best in the 1500 metres.

In the semi-finals she clocked 4:18.45 seconds, and although she finished 11th in the final she proceeded to knock a further two seconds off her mark in a time of 4:46.46.

Ballymoney's Northern Ireland record holder Michael Allen came a very creditable seventh in the final of the men's javelin.

Allen, however, was well below his best throw with a distance of 67.07 metres.

Colm McLean was also well below his best when in the 1500m final when he came in last in a time of 3:51.90 - nearly 12 slower than his personal best.

In the pool, Bangor's Emma Robinson missed out in a medal when he came sixth in the final of the women's 100m breast-stroke.

Both Andrew Bree and Michael Williamson failed to qualify for the final of the 100 metres breaststroke.

In their respective semi-finals Bree was sixth in a time of 1:03.45, while Williamson came in a slower time of 1:04.90.

There was no progress either for the last of Northern Ireland's swimmers as Julie Douglas failed to qualify for the women's 100 metres freestyle.

She was just outside her personal best in coming in seventh in a time of 56.97.
