Max Burgin 800m World Record holder

Max Burgin, is at the top of the current British 800m prospects list. Which is arguably the best junior age group in British 800m history. With 7 runners running 1:47 or faster in the u20 age group. Burgin stated his dominance in the European under 18 championships where he front ran a 1:47.36 shortly after a heats and semi final. This was also just after his 16th birthday.

His previous performances however, were all blown out of the water after his 1:45.36, which he ran just after turning 17, front running, on a windy track. Video below.

  • Florence Diamond League Preview
    Sifan Hassan, Joshua Cheptegei and Dina Asher-Smith lead a cast of international superstars competing in this week’s Florence Diamond League.   The field on show in the men’s 5000m is arguably the strongest field in history with SEVEN men all having previously run under 13 minutes. Joshua Cheptegei, the world record holder (12:35.36), is the outstanding favourite but it will be fascinating to see whether the others in the race can compete. Of particular interest will be the indomitable Jakob Ingebrigsten who recently the won 1500m at the Gateshead Diamond League in pretty dreadful conditions. His PB of 13:02.03 came …

  • Florence Diamond League 5000m – The best ever
    All we need is Paul Chelimo and Jacob Kiplimo and we have the Olympic final. I really can’t believe the standard of this 5000m. It’s by far the greatest non championship race in history and it may actually be the greatest field ever, regardless of the championship races or not. Before we break down the full line up. Here are some personal bests; 12:47, 12:43, 12:45, 12:35, 12:56, 12:52, 12:54, 12:59, Jakob Ingebrigtsen is only just in the top 10 fastest, with a personal best he is sure to beat of 13:02.
