The 100m runners from Oceania islanders are out of the competition after three of them, Moses Kamut of Vanuatu, Chris Walasi of Solomons and Wally Kirika of PNG, did not make it past Round 2.

Moses Kamut ran a 10.80s to come 3rd in Heat 7 of the competitions and qualified for Round 2 of the 100m event to become the first Ni-Vanuatu to do so in this event in a Commonwealth Games.

Moses' personal best and national record was 10.64.

Coming in first was Australia's Patrick Johnson followed by Marc Burns of Trinidad & Tobago.
Fourth was Monserrat's Henry Michael followed by Cameroon's Mousaambani Alfred then Gardiner Isaiah of Turks & Caicos and lastly, Browne Pierre of Canada.

Against the fastest man in the world, Asafa Powell in the 2nd Round of the 100m, Kamut clocked a disappointing 11.16 and came 8th out of 8.

Kamut's HPTC colleague, Chris Walasi, clocked personal best in round 2 with 10.85, and the best timing in round 2 went to PNG's Wally Kirika who ran a 10.80 in his run.
