Jemma now No 2 all-time for 1500m; SIAB photos and results

Tuesday 18th July 2023

Jemma Reekie has moved to No 2 in the Scottish all-time list for 1500m.

The Kilbarchan AAC athlete, who is bound for Budapest in the 800m, stepped up to the metric mile for the Diamond League meeting in Silesia in Poland.

Jemma finished seventh in 3:58.65 and that moves her to second behind Record holder Laura Muir.

In fact, Jemma moved above Yvonne Murray, Liz and Eilish McColgan in becoming only the second Scot to run sub-four minutes. Coached by Jon Bigg, she is now fourth on the GB all-time list.

In the same race, Erin Wallace made a return after missing three weeks or so through injury and came up with a  PB, too, at 4:06.29. That takes Erin to ninth in the all-time list.
