Ben Reynolds has broken his own 110 metres hurdles Northern Ireland record with an impressive performance in Belgium.

The 20-year-old North Down athlete, who recently became the first NI man to break the 14-second barrier, clocked a new best time of 13.75.

He won Wednesday's race at the Naumr meeting ahead of Ali Hussein Al-Zaki of Saudi Arabia.

Reynolds is now ranked fourth in Britain behind Lawrence Clarke.

Clarke has been selected for the European Under-23 Championships and Reynolds could be pushing for consideration by UK Athletics on this eyecatching performance.

Dean Adams followed up his Under-23 win last weekend with a season's best time of 10.79 in the 100m A final, his second fastest time to date.

Zoe Brown showed a return to form by winning the pole vault with 4.01m while Claire Wilkinson was fourth (3.61).

Long jumper Adam McMullan had another great leap of 7.44, although wind assisted, to finish in second place.

Commonwealth athlete Kelly McNeice (Lisburn AC) had a good race to finish second in the 800m in 2.07.41 behind Angie Smith of New Zealand.

Under-23 champion Joanna Mills finished third in a 400m race won by GB & NI's Nicola Sanders with a time of 54.29 with Ballymena and Antrim clubmate Jo Patterson sixth with 56.56s.
