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”.
