Eilish races up rankings

Have your say

A CARNOUSTIE runner has clocked the second fastest time in UK rankings this year, and a European qualification to boot.

Eilish McColgan, who runs for Dundee club Hawkhill Harriers, recorded a time of 9 minutes 58.13 seconds during the women’s 3,000m steeplechase at the Oordegem international meeting in Belgium.

This makes her not only the second fastest Scot, but also places her second in the UK rankings.

The time also guarantees Eilish a slot in the under-23 championship at Ostrava in the Czech Republic next month.
