Müller British Athletics Championships
Alexander Stadium - Birmingham
Saturday 24th August - Sunday 25th August 2019
Dina Asher-Smith’s outstanding 10.96 championship record run to win gold in the women’s 100m headlined a stellar first day of Muller British Athletics Championships action in a sunny but windy Alexander Stadium.
Jeopardy and drama are always at the heart of the national championships and 2019 was no different as Ojie Edoburun clinched British 100m gold for his first-ever senior title while Harry Coppell showed brilliantly to revise his personal best by 10cm and notch the Doha qualifying mark with gold in the pole vault.
It was records galore on day two of the Müller British Athletics Championships with championship records for Adam Gemili in the men’s 200m and Holly Bradshaw in the women’s pole vault to go along with Callum Wilkinson’s British record in the men’s 5000m walk at the start of the programme.
On a day in which many other British Athletics stars such as Morgan Lake, Matt Hudson-Smith and Jodie Williams confirmed their places in the squad for the IAAF World Championships next month in Doha, Gemili’s performance was particularly noteworthy and a fitting way to give the Alexander Stadium its big send-off before it undergoes major redevelopments in preparation for the Commonwealth Games in 2022.
