On Wednesday 23rd July we saw some top running at both the Eltham BMC and the Tooting Rosenheim League meetings. After the traumas of their house fire caused by lightning in last week’s storms racing 1500m was probably relatively easy for Lascelles Hussey by comparison. He certainly looked good with his PB 3.58.22, just behind Chris Busaileh who was close to his own best running 3.57.25.
It was a bit windier for the earlier 800m races, where Katie Snowden was again within a few tenths of her PB with 2.04.19 and Mike Cummings a little over a second outside his with 1.57.31. Both will improve on PBs they have set this year before the season is done. Penel Cummings slashed something like 40 sec off her best time for the 1km walk and John Tayleur followed up a recent 800m PB of 2.02 with a 1500m best of 4.12.49.
