Humidity spoiled what was otherwise perfect weather conditions for the second London meet of the season, taking it's toll on the 5000m runners. Luke Charbonneau showed little problems with the weather in his 800m as he was handily under 2 minutes finishing 2nd in his heat with a 1:58.72. Check out his race video linked below for his very strong move down the backstretch to go from 5th to 2nd.
In the 5000m, Lindsay Carson finished as the top women in 16:23.03, and finished 3rd in her mixed heat. Her strong finish in this mixed race gives some relief to the Mac boys that may have been dropped by her throughout the year.
Also in the 5000m were Keenan Viney and Blair Morgan who ran 15:03.67 and 15:16.20 respectively. Viney finished in 2nd in the heat, benefiting from the early pacing work of Morgan who was unafraid to work hard early.
