Sheila Reid 7th at Toronto International in 2:04.85

Sheila Reid ran just off her personal best (2:04.60) last night in Toronto, covering 800 meters in 2:04.85. Just off a huge PR (4:02.96) in her signature event -- the 1500 meters -- in which she easily attained the IAAF "A" standard needed to qualify for the 2013 world championship meet in Moscow, Reid failed here to nudge her 800 meter PR any lower. Either way, Reid likes to run the 1500 meters off the lead, capturing times and places over the final phases of the race; 800 meters races like last night's help build closing speed and are worth the effort.

Full results of the meet are HERE.
