Diamond and Bishop Finalists at World University Games

21 Aug

Emily Diamond and David Bishop both made their respective finals at the World University Games in China on 18 August 2011. Emily won her heat in 23.90 and was fourth in her semi-final in 23.82 before finishing eighth in the final in 23.58. In a season that was marred by injury early on this was a great result and her time stands up well compared to her season’s best of 24.41 set in Geneva in a one-off race.

In the men’s 1,500 metres Dave Bishop was unable to repeat the type of time he ran early in the season in the USA but nevertheless finished a creditable seventh in 3:49.61, having qualified in second place in his heat in 3:39.40.
