The British champion, 25, who competes for the City of Norwich Athletics Club, finished in 9:58.92 in a race won by Jamaican Aisha Praught in 9:21.00.

Former Reepham High School student Lake, from Hainford, was competing in her first Commonwealth Games and will be satisfied that her pre-race expectation was achieved.

“I am fit and I’m getting fitter – my aim is to come in the top eight,” she had said.

Baker, from Dereham, jumped 2.21 in the high jump, which was won by Australian Brandon Starc with a jump of 2.32.
