TYTHERINGTON-based middle distance athlete Dan Studley achieved an excellent new personal best 1500m time at the British Milers Grand Prix on Saturday night.

The event was held at the Sport City Stadium in Manchester and athletes were fortunate to have near perfect middle distance running conditions.

Studley was entered in the second quickest B race of the night and held his form well in a quick first lap.

After a slower second lap, Studley produced his usual quick last lap to win on the line in three minutes, 43 seconds – a PB by two seconds.

Studley's time was the sixth fastest U23 in Great Britain for 1500 metres this year.

This performance will give Studley confidence for the England U23 Championship and British Championship at the end of June.
