Australia’s Georgia Griffith has posted the third fastest 1500m ever by an Australian. Running at the Rabat Diamond League, Griffith finished 4th. Her time of 4:00.16 is also a Commonwealth and world champs qualifying time. After her second place at the Australian championships over 1500m, Griffith looks good to toe to line in Oregon and Birmingham.
Linden Hall managed 9th in the same Rabat race clocking 4:03.29. Ellie Sanford once again acted as the rabbit, taking the field through the 800m split in 2:07.46.
Just 4 days prior to the Rabat race, Griffith ran sub-4:04 for the first time in the Norwegian town of Jessheim. Griffith was once again paced by Ellie Sanford and won the race comfortably by approximately 50-60m.
