Chris breaks his own record

Chris O’Hare broke his own Scottish National Record at 1500m with a superb display in Monaco.
The American-based Scot battled all the way for his 3.32.11 time in ninth place in a race which once again lived up to the hype.

 

Chris went sixth on the UK all-time list as he sliced 1.5 seconds off the 3.33.61 National Record he already held (from Monaco in 2-17) and significantly improved on his Season’s Best of 3.35.96.

‘I am pretty happy with that and getting the Record,’ said Chris.
‘I just went out a little bit too quick. I didn’t want to get stuck and I didn’t want to be the one to bridge any gaps.

‘I only found out on Wednesday night that I was in the race – the plan was only to race on Sunday (Anniversary Games) so I’d done a session on Wednesday morning, which isn’t ideal.’

Many congratulations to Chris, his family, coach Terrence Mahon and all at Edinburgh AC and Tulsa University who were involved in his development over many years.
