James McCarthy (22) has been to several British Champs, both indoors and outdoors, but for this edition of the British Indoor Championship in Birmingham he was joined by Will Perkin (20).
Both were in heats of 800m. James recorded an indoor PB of 1.51.23 to be third in his heat, just pipped on the line for second. Will recorded a season’s best of 1.53.26 to be fifth in his heat. With only the winner of each of the four heats plus two fastest losers making the final, neither progressed but both enjoyed the experience of competing in front of a packed Birmingham Arena.
