David recorded a time of 2.29.30, behind US visitor Chris Mocko (2.26.43). 3rd place was, remarkably considering the rumour mill had him down as “finished!”, was the one and only Gary O`Hanlon in 2.30.20, proving that you just can`t keep a good Gary down! Well done also Ollie Power (3.50.52).

Also over the weekend in England Liam Roarty ran a 3000 pb in the Midland League in Wolverhampton of 9.13.5 taking 9 seconds off his best in coming 3rd.
