Bronze Medal for Alex at European U20 Championships

Alex Melloy made his debut for Great Britain at the U20 European Championships at Tallinn 15-18th July competing in the 3000m.

Alex ran a sensible heat in very hot conditions (30 degrees), finishing in first place to have a safe route to the final.

The final took place two days later with three British athletes in the 16 man final. Alex was in 4th place at the bell and ran the last 400m in 56.5 sec to finish in third place and earn a bronze medal with a time of 8:18.49.

Alex’s bronze medal helped the British team top the medal table with 6 golds, 1 silver and 5 bronzes.
