Athletics - 06. August 2007.

Sarah Jamieson setting a new personal best to finish third in the 3000m.




After placing in the top six in all four of her 1500m races in Europe this season, Jamieson looked capable of claiming victory in London as she was with the leaders with 250m remaining before American Lauren Fleshman, who raced here during the Australian domestic season, edged away to win in 8.43.41.

Britain’s Jo Pavey was second in 8.44.13 with Jamieson in third with 8.48.41.

Jamieson’s time sliced just over a second from her previous best of 8.49.46, set in Madrid in 2004 and moves her up one place on the Australian all-time list to number three behind Benita Johnson and Eliose Wellings.

Still on the catch-up after missing some training due to a chest infection, Jamieson told AAP after the race, "It was a personal best but it's not a distance that's run very often so it's a bit of a cheap PB.”

“I was hoping to run probably eight to ten seconds quicker, so a bit disappointing. In the end, I just decided to try and run for the win but the other girls were too strong."



The action now moves to Stockholm for the final major European event before world championships with the IAAF World Tour meeting in Stockholm on Tuesday.
Eloise Wellings, is all set to compete.
