European Athletics Team Championships

Commonwealth Games champion Eilidh Child had her best run of the season as she won the 400 metres hurdles in a European leading 54.46. Two athletes at university in America, Oli Aitchison and Rhianwedd Price, made their GB debuts in the 1500 metres. Both ran with maturity and guts that was great to see. Aitchison had to come wide in the home straight to pass a crowd of athletes, to finish third, as the first seven ran 3:52. Price grabbed hold of the lead after a very slow first 400, and led until 200 to go, and could have have been swallowed up by the pack in the home straight, but fought back to also take third in 4:16.59. This follows her NCAA title a week ago. Great Britain finished fifth.
