A near miss for Grice in Berlin

Charlie De’Vall Grice (Phoenix) just missed a medal in an exciting 1500m final at the European Games in Berlin last night.

Having qualified comfortably behind Edinburgh’s Chris O’Hare on the Wednesday, Grice ran a sensible race and was always in contention.

Amazingly the talented 17-year-old Norwegian, Jakob Ingebrigtsen, the youngest of the three siblings who had all made the final, led by the half way point and instead of his elder brothers pulling through to win, he kept his nose in front to take the title in 3:38.10s.

National and County Championships plus trials

The British Championships at Birmingham this weekend is again being used as the Trials for the European championships in August but before then there is the team for the World Athletics Cup, in July, to be decided.

Sussex athletes are hoping to catch the selector’ s eyes and Charlie Da’Vall Grice will have been buoyed up by his recent fine 1500m victory over one of his main rivals Jake Wightman in Marseille last week.
