Another indoor PB puts hurdler Dave King in good stead ahead of European Indoors

18 February 2017

University of Bath-based athlete Dave King warmed up for next month’s European Indoor Championships in style by setting a new 60m hurdles personal best at the Muller Grand Prix in Birmingham.

The Sport Performance graduate, an ambassador for Team Bath partners MJ Church, clocked 7.63 as he finished runner-up to former University-based hurdler Andy Pozzi. Former Olympic and World Indoor champion Aries Merritt was third in 7.70.

It was the second week running that Pozzi and King – coached by James Hillier – had recorded a one-two, following their impressive performances at the British Athletics Team Trials in Sheffield.

Eilidh Doyle, coached by Malcolm Arnold at the Sports Training Village, was fourth in the women’s 400m and former University-based long jumper Jazmin Sawyers was runner-up in the long jump after setting a new indoor PB of 6.71m.
