Weekend Update – NY, Canberra, Glasgow

Millrose Games:

Canadian Mo Ahmed’s lean at the finish line was enough to better Kevin Sullivan’s previous national record in the indoor 3,000m, as the 25-year old improved the mark by 0.06 seconds. Ahmed ran 7:40.11min at the Millrose Games in New York City on Saturday.

Also Mitchell Watt finished 2nd in the men’s Long Jump, behind current world leader Dendy.

Glasgow Grand Prix:

Sean Safo-Antwi powered home to victory in the men’s 60m clocking an impressive 6.56 sec, just one hundredth of a second clear of the World Indoor champion Richard Kilty.

“I knew I was in good shape and I knew I really wanted to win. I haven’t lost yet this season so I came with that mentality and my aim was to win,” said Safo-Antwi.

Canberra Track Classic:

Nelson set another personal best at the weekend when she ran quicker than any Australian woman over 200m since Melinda Gainsford-Taylor at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.

Nelson slashed 0.31 seconds off her personal best in Canberra on Saturday when she ran 22.53s. Her last personal best was set only a fortnight ago, when she already ran an Olympic qualifier.
