Bleasdale UK Champion

Well done to Hillingdon Athlete, Julia Bleasdale who won the women’s 5000m at the Aviva UK trials and Championships in Birmingham on Sunday. The UK Champion produced a PB of 15:49.02, breaking her own club record. She was followed home by European Team Champs representative Eilish McColgan. Watch her interview here.

The qualifying standard of 15.25 (15.14, “A”) for the World Championships in Daegu means that despite the amazing performance we may not see her in a GB vest this summer.

Julia will be live on the BBC this Friday taking part in the London Grand Prix at Crystal Palace.
