Mills Wins British 1500m Title

Details Category: News

Published: Tuesday, 25 February 2020 09:07 Written by Michelle

Sport Brighton scholar George Mills won the British 1500m title last weekend at the British Athletics Indoor Championships in Glasgow on Sunday.

Mills, 20, who is from Harrogate but represents local club Brighton Phoenix, clocked a time of 3:50:69 to take the British title at the Emirates Arena, a week after he set a new personal best of 3:39:25 at the same venue at the Indoor Grand Prix – one of the most prestigious indoor athletics meetings in the world. The latter time puts him third in the current 1500m British rankings.

Speaking about his achievement, Mills said: “I’m delighted to have won the British title in Glasgow, it was a target for me to perform well there from the beginning of the indoor season. As far as I’m concerned, there is a lot more hard work to be done and a long way to go. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn and gain as much experience as possible”.

WHY is Rugby Ready necessary?

Rugby Union is a game played by two teams of 7, 10 or 15 players that physically contest for the ball and, as such, the game carries a risk of injury.

It is the responsibility of all people involved in the game of Rugby to understand and manage these risks within acceptable levels.

Rugby Ready aims to assist in the communication and understanding of the risks associated with Rugby and to raise awareness of good practice.
