Steve Mitchell Sixth on England 1,500 metre Debut

01 Feb

Steve Mitchell finished sixth in Vienna on Tuesday 31st January 2012 on his England Indoor 1,500 metre debut. In second place with 400 metres to go Steve found the last two laps tough and declared himself disappointed with his 3:47.00 clocking. The race was won by Andreas Vojka of Austria in 3:38.99 (faster than Mo Farah at Glasgow!) and second was Steve’s England colleague Lewis Moses in 3:41.33 (the sub-3:42 clocking that Steve was looking for). My advice is put the performance in perspective Steve – only five Brits have run faster than your Tuesday time so far in 2012 – refocus and come back fighting in the UK Indoor Championships in Sheffield on 11th and 12th February 2012.
