Success for Eilish

AT THE Flanders International meeting at Oordegem, Belgium, last Saturday, Eilish McColgan won her first 3,000 metre Steeeplechase of the season.

Even after suffering a lengthy flight delay, resulting in her not getting to bed until after 3 a.m.

McColgan dominated the race, clocking a time of 9 minutes 48.09 seconds, her second best ever time behind her Scottish record of 9 minutes 44.80 seconds. She will be looking to achieve the A standard qualifying time for the Steeplechase in a forthcoming Diamond League race in Oslo where she will be competing against Kenyans and other top runners.
