Trafford Nike Grand Prix

- 26th Jul 2011

Chelsea Jarvis continues to improve at 800 metres with a fast 2-07.17 at the Nike Grand Prix on Saturday.

In blustery conditions 15-year-old Chelsea was 6th in a race won by Canadian athlete Nicole Sufuentes in 2-03.

The time is another club record in for Chelsea in the under-17 age group and is the fastest 800 metre run overall by any female athlete in the clubs history.

Elle Baker battled it out in the women’s 3,000m A-race with GB cross internationals Naomi Taschomowitz of Cambridge University who stretched the field in the last kilometre to win in 9-12 from Lauren Howarth 2nd in 9-16 and Elle 3rd in 9-21.

The three athletes will face each other this Sunday in the Women’s 5,000 metres UKA Championship and World Trial at Birmingham on Sunday.
