Middle Distance Result from Trafford Grand Prix

Let's hear it for the girls!

Mari Smith and Caelidh Ross (both U20 women) pulled out personal best performances at the Trafford Grand Prix, Manchester on Tuesday 1st July.

Mari had been threatening to revise her personal best time over the 800m by running close to it in her last few races. She had been peppering the 2:10 mark in her last few races and it was on Tuesday night that she ran 2:07.43, which was a second inside her previous best of 2:08.51.

Caelidh ran 4:27.93 for the 1500m, which is an improvement  of 7 seconds. Following on from her win at the Midland U20 Championships a few weeks ago, Caelidh has been selected to compete for the England Midlands U20's at the Welsh Athletics International on 15th July! Not only that, but as a result of winning the Scottish Indoor U18 800m earlier in the year, she has also been selected to represent Scotland in the Celtic Games in Dublin in August! Congratulations to her in these achievements!
