Raquil late surge wins 400m gold

9 August 2006

Marc Raquil produced a desperate surge for the line to snatch the 400m title at the European Championships as Britain's Tim Benjamin came sixth.

The Frenchman closed down Russian Vladislav Frolov over the last 50m with a ragged run to win in 45.02 seconds.

Frolov settled for silver and a personal best of 45.09 with France's Leslie Djhone taking bronze.

Benjamin's season has been wrecked by a groin injury and the Welshman battled home in 45.89 seconds.

"I would have won the race if it hadn't been for my injury problems," an emotional Benjamin said after the race.

"I need to rectify those problems but you'll see how I'll rebound from this."
