Eltham Grand Prix preview

BRITISH internationals Jess Judd and Hannah England are both aiming for fast times in the women’s 1500m in Eltham on Saturday evening (JULY 22nd).
Judd will be looking to maintain her impressive record in the Grand Prix series this summer having already won over 5000m and 3000m at SportCity and Loughborough respectively, with a PB of 15:31.64 in the former while at Watford she was runner-up in the 1500m.
Judd will certainly be looking to better her season’s best of 4:08.93 which she ran in France at the start of the month and apparently has her sights set on getting as close to 4:05 as possible.
England clocked a season’s best of 4:15.04 in England earlier this month and is chasing a 4mins 12secs time on Saturday so both women will be keen to ensure a fast pace is set from the start.

In the men’s 1500m George Mills will start as front-runner after a late decision to switch from the 800m.
The Brighton Phoenix former junior international has run under 1:48.70 four times this summer and at the Watford Grand Prix notched up a PB of 3:40.32 to finish fourth s no doubt would love to dip under 3mins 40secs for the first time.
Also among the entries are Daniel Bebbington and Tom Dodd, who have both run personal bests this year at 3:45.56 and 3:45.63 respectively.

The fastest man in the men’s 800m field now is Christian Von Eitzen, who ran a season’s best of 1:47.70 set in Germany last month s looks in shape to attack his lifetime best of 1:46.88 which he set in his homeland of Germany two years ago.
Also in the 800m are the Brighton Phoenix pair of Archie Davis and Robbie Fitzgibbon, who are both looking to attack 1min 48secs so the race is set up nicely.

Australia Catriona Bisset, who ran a PB of 1:59.78 this year, heads the women’s 800m field with Revee Walcott-Nolan, who ran a season’s best of 2:03.81 at the Watford GP last month, leading the British challenge which also includes and Isobel Ives fresh from her big PB of 2:04.46 at Watford.
Katy-Ann McDonald, Isabelle Scott and Georgia Yearby are also entered.

Tom Mortimer and Stephen Scullion are among the entries for the men’s 5000m with British international Jennifer Nesbitt in the women’s field.

The first race will be the women’s 1500m B race at 5.30m with a busy programme of 18 races concluding with the men’s 5000m A race at 8.06.
