Silver For Charlie

Sunday 23rd May 2010

Charlie Grice came 2nd in the 1000m final of the European Youth Olympics Selection meeting in Moscow and now qualifies to go forward to Singapore in August for the Youth Olympics. He clocked 2:25.27 behind Ireland's Mark English who ran 2.24.53. Charlie now goes 2nd on the UK U17 All Time ( with his heat time of 2.24.56 ) list for that event...ahead of people like Steve Ovett! Unfortunately for Charlie it is not a club record as he is 2nd on that list to Johan Boakes. Phoenix athletes 1 and 2 on the all time list...maybe we do know what we're doing after all!
