After more than 18 months without a competitive race Cameron Chalmers returned to action in style on Sunday.

Producing a time of 45.98 seconds he broke the course record for the 400m at Footes Lane as he ramps up preparations ahead of The Olympics later this year.

Former island games medalist Dale Garland also ran in the race as he saw his 400m record smashed by 0.52 seconds.

Chalmers chose not to compete during the pandemic ravaged season of 2020, instead opting to fine tune his skills by training in Guernsey.

It's a decision he believes will pay off and this maiden run of the year demonstrates he's moving in the right direction.

Brother Alastair has already gone back to the UK as preparations continue ahead of the all-important Olympic trials in June.
