Fine fourth place for Charlie at Commonwealth

Charlie Devall Grice was just a few metres away for a medal in the Commonwealth Games 1500 metre final on the Gold Coast on Saturday in one of the best runs of his career.

Charlie Da’Vall Grice (Brighton Phoenix) placed an agonising fourth in a highly competitive 1500m final won by Kenya’s Elijah Manangoi in 3:34.78.

The 24-year-old Brighton man took up the perfect position on the first couple of laps, sitting in with a pack that allowed Kenyan duo Elijah Manangoi and Timothy Cheruiyot dictate the pace.

Round-up and weekend

The change of direction of the course for last Saturday’s Sussex Road Relay championships at Christ’s Hospital seems not to have affected the runners and although no course records were broken (six succumbed last year) a couple were approached.

The races were thought to be one of the best of these championships though a strong wind, more than the change of direction, were considered to have greater effect on the times.
