Phoenix finalists

Phoenix was represented twice in the Anniversary games with Charlie Grice and Robbie Fitzgibbon competing in the final of the men's 1500m on the 9th July.

Our athletes ran in what was a thrilling final with Charlie overtaken in the last 100 metres to finish 5th with Robbie 15th against an international field. Britain's Chris O'Hare took gold in 3:34:75.

Both Phoenix athletes raised their game in the Olympic stadium, to improve their times from the British Athletics at Birmingham;
Charlie finished in 3:48:84 in Birmingham and 3:36:39 in London (finishing 5th in both races)
Robbie ran 3:50:91 to finish 9th in Birmingham and 3:37:74 in London (13th).

Well done to all the athletes who represented Phoenix at the British Athletics Championships: Toby Harris, Dan Stepney, Finley Bigg, Archie Davies, Max Pickard
