Morpeths Laura Weightman unfortunately finished in a disappointing
twelfth place on her first competitive outing since the Commonwealth Games,
at the IAAF Diamond League Meeting, held in Eugene, USA on Saturday 26th May 2018.
In a fiercely competitive Women’s 1500m, plus an abundance of intense heat,
Weightman struggled to get on terms with the leading protagonists,
as she posted a time of 4m07.48s, which was certainly some distance adrift from her lifetime best.
Hopefully Laura will pick herself up from this, to tackle her tough summer programme,
which intends to include the forthcoming European Athletics Championships,
being held in Berlin in early August.
