Louise Shanahan, Leevale AC and Cambridge University, running 2:03.17, lowered her 800m best having set her previous best, 2:03.71 in Belfast, just last week. Louise is the reigning British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) indoor 800m champion.

The race was led out, for the first 600m, by a male pacemaker, so will not count for record purposes, nevertheless it was a strong performance in testing windy conditions.  The pacemaker led the ield of five women through 400m in 60 sec dead, with Shanahan in fourth place. Khaisha Mlanga led from the outset, and was never challenged, winning in 2:01.91. Louise made a move on the back straight, and was third at 600m, in 1:31. Coming into the finishing straight, she moved into second place, only to be overtaken again by Georgie Hartigan, with 2:02.99.

 

Louise's 2:03.17 retains her third place in the women's mixed 800m standings.

In the earlier Women's 800m B race, Katie Kirk reduced her own PB, also set in Belfast last week to 2:02.98, to go third overall, behind Siofra Cleirigh-Buttner, and, of course, Ciara Mageean's recent stunning 1:59.69
