Lee Valley Gold Standard 1500m

Tom Mortimer
  • Tom Mortimer ran in a quality 1500m A race at Lee Valley in London last night finishing 6th out of 8 runners. All those ahead of Tom will be running in the 1500m at the British Championships next week.
  • Tom was in the pack until 250m to go looking comfortable, when the kick for Home came and he found himself lacking the finishing speed to match the specialist 1500m runners. Tom took 4.24s off his PB in a time of 3min 47.26s Coach Chris Brown said “Tom looked comfortable at this pace and could have gone further and quicker which is encouraging and a confidence boost for Tom ahead of the British Championships 5000m next week”
