Bishop ties the knot in America

CONGRATULATIONS today (September 2nd) are due to Bristol & West AC international 1500m runner Dave Bishop.

Dave is getting married to Vanessa in Albuquerque, America, where he has made his home since graduating from university in the New Mexico State.

Bishop had a low key season following a knee injury but is upbeat about returning to form – as a married man – in 2017.

“I had a problem with my Achilles tendon in 2014 and then with the other Achilles the following year while this year it was my knee,” added Bishop.

“I still start every year with the ambition of running personal bests but I probably need to look after myself  better to reduce the risk of injuries.”
