Weekend Roundup

Max Burgin 17

There have been some great running results from our best athletes, this weekend, with one of the highlights from Max Burgin who ran an incredible 1:45 for 800m! 

European youth champion Max Burgin (handicap -4.6)) broke the British Under-20 800m record and age-17 800m record as he led the automatic selections for the European Under-20 and European Under-23 Championships in Bedford.

The 17-year-old ran a huge personal best of 1:45.36 to cut the tape in first place and secure automatic selection for the European Under-20 Championships in Borås, Sweden, whilst also shooting to the top of the British senior rankings and achieving the IAAF World Championships qualifying standard in the process.

At the Golden Spike, Ostrava in the Czech Republic, Charlie Da'Vall Grice (handicap -5.7) scored one of the biggest wins of his career over the mile at the famous Ostrava Golden Spike meeting. The Brighton Phoenix man finished strongly over the final 50m to break the tape in 3.56.95 and overhaul Kenyan Mike Kibet.

In the women’s 1500m Sarah McDonald (handicap -1.5) almost equalled Grice’s feat as she finished a fine second in 4.03.79, with Jemma Reekie (handicap -1.3) finishing seventh in a personal best time of 4.05.82.

In the men’s 800m Kyle Langford (handicap -6.2) was fourth in 1.46.08,
