5,000m PB for Alex Yee at Anniversary Games

The Müller Anniversary Games at the London Stadium this weekend is part of the top tier of World Athletics, the Diamond League.

Already more than familiar with racing in the top tier of World Triathlon, Great Britain’s young triathlon star, Alex Yee was once again mixing his multisport ambitions with track running, racing today (Saturday) over 5,000m at the venue of the London 2012 Olympic Games. In 2018, Alex was of course the British Senior 10,000m champion, running 27:51.94 at Parliament Hill in the Night of the 10,000m PB’s event.

12 months ago he clocked 13:34.12 in the same London event, and improved that today by almost five seconds, setting new personal best figures of 13:29.18.

In a year in which he has already won a World Cup (Cape Town), finished second on his World Triathlon Series debut (Abu Dhabi) and won a World Triathlon Mixed Relay Series (Nottingham), he continues to find further improvements. Impressive – very impressive.
