ATHLETICS: Hannah is looking to sign off on a high
10:00am Saturday 14th September 2013 in Sport
Hannah England is determined to finish her season on a high note by shining in two road races.
The 26-year-old Oxford City star competes in the mile race at the Great North City Games in Newcastle today (1.17pm) before racing over the same distance in New York on September 22.
Despite finishing fourth over 1,500m at the World Championships in Moscow, England did not surpass her best time of 4mins 1.89secs for the distance set in 2011.
She tweeted: “Bit frustrated to finish 2013 without a track PB, hopefully I’ll make up for it in the 2 road miles I’m finishing with in Newcastle and NYC.”
England’s last track race saw her finish fifth at the Brussels Diamond League meeting, despite having to jump over and around a pile-up of athletes after a rival fell with one lap to go.
On that, she tweeted: “I managed 2 hurdles...I didn’t stutter, maybe steeplechase is for me!”
