North of England Senior Men’s 800m Champion James Young of Morpeth Harriers proved beyond all doubt that he is in a rich vein of form, as he produced a brand new personal best performance in the 1500m C Race at the BMC Gold Standard Meeting, held at Stretford, Manchester, on the evening of Tuesday 12th June 2018,
only mere 48 hours following his Gold Medal achievement.
He posted a superb time of 3m50.92s, to win by four seconds from Liverpool Harrier Daniel Preston.
Young had travelled from his Lancaster base, in the hope of running in the A race, where on time alone, he would have finished in eighth place, but may have further improved his personal best, in what was a much faster race.
He also improved on his previous figures by nearly eight seconds.
Also competing in Young’s race, was fellow Morpeth Harrier Phillip Winkler, who finished seventh, posting a brand new personal best of 4m00.45s, taking nearly four seconds off his previous figures.
