Ireland's Ben Reynolds bowed out of the World Indoor Championships after finishing last in his 60m hurdles heat in Birmingham on Saturday.

The North Down athlete clocked 7.89 seconds as he came in seventh in a heat won by American Jarrett Eaton.

"I clattered the first hurdle and I couldn't get my stride after that," said Reynolds

He was Northern Ireland's final competitor after Ciara Mageean, Megan Marrs and Amy Foster exited on Friday.

European bronze medallist Mageean was seventh in her 1500m heat in four minutes 11.81 seconds.

Great Britain athlete Marrs, meanwhile, clocked 8.28 seconds in her 60m hurdles heat to finish sixth.

Irish sprinter Foster ran 7.35 in her 60m qualifier, which was 0.04 seconds outside a semi-final spot.
