Fisher flies to 1500m PB in Madrid

Grant Fisher continued his fine run of form with a 1500m personal best of 3:34.99 in Madrid tonight, the Bowerman Track Club athlete coming home just over a second off the winner, Yared Nuguse, in fourth in what was a stacked field. Fisher had set a 3000m indoor PB of 7:35.82 last week in Lievin.

Elsewhere, there was a host of Kimbia athletes in action around the world over the weekend. Sam Tanner competed in the mixed relay at the World Cross Country Championships in Bathurst, Australia, helping New Zealand to 10th, while Poppy Tank finished 36th in the women’s race, helping Britain to sixth place.

At the US Indoor Championships, Josh Thompson produced a brilliant performance to cross the line first in the men’s 1500m final, but was later disqualified in controversial circumstances due to an infringement on the final turn. Michaela Meyer finished fourth in her 800m heat, but it was not enough to advance.

At the German nationals, Amos Bartelsmeyer continued his fine run of form, which recently included a 3:50.45 mile in Boston, by taking victory over 1500m with ease in 3:47.38.

A week earlier, Elise Cranny clocked an indoor 3000m PB of 8:37.17 at the Millrose Games. Tanner finished second in the famed Wanamaker Mile in 3:51.70, while Thompson was fourth in 3:52.49.
