Have your say

IN THE 3,000 metres steeplechase in Slovakia last weekend, Eilish McColgan set her third fastest time and her second fastest this year, but she feels she can take another 10 seconds off it before the end of the season.

In a slow paced race and up against a top-class field, including four Kenyans, this was her first outing over the distance since the Olympics and she finished in fourth place in a time of 9 minutes 44. 99 seconds.

The winner was Kenyan Lidya Chepkurui, in 9:30.82.

Eilish now looks forward to the last few races of the season, finishing with the New York Mile on September 22.
