Molly misses out on medal bid

MollyLongMay2015MEANWHILE in Sweden Bristol & West’s Molly Long finished fourth in the final of the women’s 800m at the European Under 20 Championships.

Coach John Knowles tells me that Molly never got on terms with the leading group of three who dominated the race, held in blustery conditions, with Renee Eykens winning in 2:02.83 from Sara Schmidt of German (2:04.55) and Anita Hinriksdottir of Iceland (2:05.04).

Long was next in 2:06.00
