Well done to our youngsters grabbing those big 1500 PBs and qualifiers!
Is it the first time that we’ve had 6 <span class=”vm-hook-outer vm-hook-default”><span class=”vm-hook” style=”color: rgb(0, 153, 0); border-color: transparent transparent rgb(0, 153, 0);”>women</span><span class=”vm-hook-icon” style=”display: inline-block;”></span></span> at 4:06.00 or faster in a season? In 2013 we had five sub-4:06. Not being a member of PowerOf10 I can only go back to 2006 but I don’t imagine we’ve had more than that before 2006.
I’ve looked back to 2000 and certainly no more than 3 at less than 4:06 in any year. The 4 x PBs from our younger athletes this year rank in the top 30 all time but still some way off Christina Boxer and Kirsty Wade at nos. 7 and 8 on the all time list. There is more to come from this group – let’s hope they all stay injury free.
