For the first time since 2006, Australia will see three women take to the start line of the Commonwealth Games final of the 1500m, with Georgia Griffith, Linden Hall and Zoe Buckman all progressing after surviving the heats at Carrara Stadium on Monday night.

While the final will feature such esteemed athletes as two-time Olympic champion over the 800m Caster Semenya (RSA), fourth-placegetter in the 3000m steeplechase at the 2017 world championships Beatrice Chepkoech (KEN) and former world junior 1500m champion Stephanie Twell (SCO), the three Australians my fancy their luck to sneak into the medals if they race near their best.

Both Hall and Buckman possess personal bests that are faster than the current Commonwealth Games record held by Hellen Obiri from Glasgow 2014.

As many well know, the 1500m is one of the most tactical races on the track and even though nothing is certain until the race unfolds, the one things for sure, all three Aussie women are in the mix.
