Quigley through to world final in Birmingham

Colleen Quigley (photo: Jordan Beckett) produced an outstanding run to reach the world 1500m final in Birmingham on Friday night, the Bowerman Track Club athlete coming from behind on the final lap to finish second in her heat in 4:09.31.

Quigley will compete in the final at 8:39pm alongside her teammate at the Bowerman Track Club, Shelby Houlihan, who advanced as a non-automatic qualifier in the third and final heat. There was some measure of difficulty in today’s heat, with Quigley colliding with Sweden’s Meraf Bahta with a couple of laps to run.

“It’s an indoor track, so there’s lots of arms and legs flying around, but I was feeling really good and relaxed right before that happened. I had to fight really hard that last 100.”
