London Anniversary Games Diamond League


Mo Farah had a world leading victory of 7:34.66 in the 3000 metres, as he passed Brendan Foster’s 7:35.1 (1974), a World record when it was set, to go second on the UK all-time list. Dave Moorcroft surprisingly still holds the British record, also a former World record, 7:32.79 (1982).

Usain Bolt has been having an horrendous season, running the worst 200 of his career in New York, in his own words, and ranking 62nd in the world at 10.13 for 100 metres. Like superman he suddenly runs 9.87 in his heat and replicates that time to win the final. CJ Ujah impressed in fourth as he broke 10 seconds for the second time to equal his PB 9.96.

Laura Weightman scored a much needed 4:06.09 win in the 1500 metres in a season where Laura Muir has grabbed all the headlines. You could feel her relief as she punched the air at the finish.

Jess Ennis-Hill wanted to break 13 seconds in the 100 hurdles to show her she is ready for Beijing, and she did more by running a world class 12.79, a place behind Tiffany Porter, in fifth, as Jasmin Stowers got a stunning 12.47 win.

In the 200 metres, newly crowned British champion Zarnel Hughes keeps on improving, going third on the UK all-time list, winning in 20.05.
