GLASGOW-BOUND – JEMMA REEKIE

A Superb finish from Jemma Reekie made sure of a 1500m gold at the British Championships and clinched her slot for Glasgow 2019 with automatic selection.

Jemma clocked 4.17.08 in a tough race to get the title and a place at Emirates Arena in March.

Teenager Kerry MacAngus took fourth in the same final with a PB of 4.20.25.

Congratulations to both athletes
