Jake Wightman To Race In The Men’s 800M Against Mark English Of Ireland
Jake Wightman GBR is one of Britain’s top middle distance runners of recent years. He has run a 3.52 mile and a 1.44 for 800m in the last year. He recently finished third in the Emsley Carr Mile at the London Diamond League meeting in a stellar field. He was the 2017 winner of that prestigious race.
Mark English IRL, bronze medallist over 800M at the European Indoors in March is finding form ahead of the World Championships in Doha. He will also be up against two top Americans Isaiah Harris and Eric Sowinski who was second in this race last year. There are several athletes in the field looking for qualifying times for Doha so it is guaranteed to be a fast race if the weather allows.
