Erin Wallace has been chatting about her bronze medal success at the Euro U23 Champs in Estonia (last Sunday).
The young Scot made her Diamond League bow in the mile race at Gateshead on Tuesday night – barely 48 hours after a thrilling finish to the Women’s 1500m in Tallinn saw her snatch third.
Erin dived for the line as her ‘legs went’ but it proved worthwhile with the medal awarded by a margin of only two hundredths of a second on her Spanish opponent.
Thanks to Alex Seftel and the Diamond League media team for their video content from Gateshead.
