Dave’s In – Steve’s Out

In what was probably a closer call than most photo finishes Dave Bishop was given the nod to represent Great Britain in the World University Games in China next month over club mate Steve Mitchell in the men’s 1,500 metres. Our intelligence was that UKA were planning to take two out of the three with the ‘A’ standard qualifying time (3.42) – the other runner being Kris Gauson – and Steve Mitchell was the one left behind. Congratulations to Dave. It must surely only be a matter of time before Steve is representing UK somewhere. Its nice to be in the position where the club has two of the three vying for the selection – I can’t help being disappointed that the Bristol duo didn’t both win through though.
